The Bantams Account is a savings account that offers you great rates, and access to your money whilst supporting Bradford City Football Club. Each year, Leeds Building Society will make a donation to the Bradford City Football Club equivalent to 1% of the total balances held in the account – and it doesn’t cost you a thing!
With tiered interest rates, the more you save, the higher the interest you receive on your savings…and the more the Club receives!
