TOWN are riding high in the savings league, latest figures have revealed.
The Terriers Account, operated by Yorkshire Building Society and aimed at Huddersfield Town supporters, is ranked fourth in the table of football club savings accounts.
The account pays 3.65% interest on £1,000 of savings – a performance bettered only by Wolverhampton (5.25%), Derby (4.45%) and Stafford (3.7%).
By contrast some of football’s biggest clubs offer far lower rates. Manchester United, Manchester City, Everton, Liverpool, Sunderland, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham are all in mid-table for savings – each offering a rate of 2.35%.
Figures from comparison website moneyfacts show that Hartlepool and Darlington are in the relegation zone with a lowly 0.98% each.
A Terrier Account can be opened with £1 for under 18s and £100 for adults. Account holders qualify for prize draws and other special deals offered by Town while the Bradford-based society pays a cash bonus to Town’s youth development academy based on savings balances.
