We are delighted to announce that Bluefin Sport’s National Game Insurance Scheme will once again be our recommended insurer for Season 2016 / 2017.

For Season 2016 / 2017, clubs will be able to affiliate through the Whole Game System, The FA’s IT platform, and will ideally need to purchase Personal Accident and Legal Liability insurance before affiliation can be completed.

It is mandatory for all teams in Cumberland to have Personal Accident Insurance in place. Public Liability insurance is also mandatory and all clubs should carry a limit of indemnity of no less than £10,000,000 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 is 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.

Personal Accident insurance is available for adult and youth teams and protects players, committee members, managers, trainers and assistant referees/officials in the event of an accident arising from football activities.
Benefits include:
• Accidental death
• Life cover
• Permanent total disablement
• Loss of sight, limbs, speech, hearing
• Hospitalisation
• Dental expenses
• Weekly benefits for time off work
• Broken bone benefits
For Adult 11-a-side teams, personal accident insurance is mandatory and the “Superior 50” level of cover is the minimum level of cover required by the Cumberland Football Association. We would recommend that you look at the range of benefits on offer as you may wish to upgrade your teams cover.

Bluefin Sport offer a monthly instalment facility will help you to spread the cost of your personal accident insurance for premiums of £100 or more.
