subsidies for essex grassroots clubs
protecting our players
For season 2017/18, all clubs are required to purchase Personal Accident Insurance as a condition of their affiliation with us, whilst Public Liability Insurance continues to be subsidised by us for grassroots clubs.
In 2013, The FA introduced a rule making it mandatory for adult eleven-a-side teams to have personal accident insurance in place each season. This was extended in 2017 to additionally cover youth teams. Public liability insurance is also mandatory, and all clubs should carry a limit of indemnity of no less than £10,000,000 for any one occurrence.
Bluefin Sport can provide clubs, teams, leagues and match officials with robust and competitive insurance products, specifically tailored to the needs of grassroots football.
Bluefin Sport are The FA’s appointed broker to deliver the National Game Insurance Scheme (NGIS), and also our appointed broker. We urge you to consider your purchase of insurance cover through the NGIS.
