Supporting your club

As you start to build up money in your account, your support will grow too. Every year we’ll send the Nottingham Forest Academy a cheque equal to 1% of the average amount saved in your account each year.

This helps train the next generation of local football talent, providing them with the best possible opportunities to achieve footballing excellence.

Your interest

We’ll pay your interest on 1 September every year, and send you an interest statement that month.

Paying money in

You can pay money into your account at any branch of The Nottingham up to a maximum of £750,000.

The most you can save in The Nottingham Forest Saver account is £750,000.

Taking money out

You can make up to six instant-access withdrawals per calendar year. Limiting yourself to six withdrawals is a great way to steadily build up funds – brilliant if you’re saving towards something in particular, like a special holiday or even a really flashy pair of football boots!

You must keep at least £1 in your account at all times.
