Leeds Building Society Chief Executive Ian Ward said, "The Blue and Amber is the savings account that offers Leeds Rhinos fans great rates and access to their money while supporting their club. The more that fans save, the more Leeds Rugby receives and with tiered interest rates, the higher the interest customers will receive on their savings."
All customers that open a Blue and Amber account also receive 2 match tickets to a Leeds Rhinos home match. In addition, all Blue and Amber account holders are entered into a bi-monthly prize draw to win great 'money can't buy' prizes from Leeds Rugby. These prizes include a day with the head coach of the Rhinos team, match day hospitality for four people and a day with the players.
Leeds Rugby Chief Executive Gary Hetherington said "The Blue and Amber is a great account and I would encourage any fans who have not already opened one to do so as soon as possible."
