Solicitors offer Dundee soccer fans the chance to help their clubs
Property law firm Warners is offering football fans in Dundee the chance to give extra support to their teams if they do business through the firm's branch in the city.
Warners has offered supporters who are buying or selling a property in Dundee to nominate their favourite of the city’s two major football clubs – and the firm will then donate 10% of their standard solicitors fees to that team.
The initiative was devised as a way for supporters to provide some financial support to Dundee FC following the club’s recent financial problems whien it went into administration, but was extended to allow fans of Dundee United FC the chance to give a boost to their own club.
Jason Scott, branch development partner at Warners, said: “Football is a big part of many people’s lives in Dundee and there is fierce loyalty towards both of the city’s professional clubs. We thought it would be a good idea to offer people in Dundee the chance to give some extra support to their teams whenever they used our legal services."
In addition to donating a percentage of fees from its property sales, Warners will make 10% of legal fees incurred whenever someone makes a will with the firm available for donation to the clubs.
