INSURANCE 2021 - 22

Cumberland Works With The FA Appointed Insurance Broker Bluefin Sport To Provide Insurance For The Grassroots Game Through The National Game Insurance Scheme (NGIS). 

What is the National Game Insurance Scheme (NGIS)?

 In 2011, The FA set out to raise the standards of insurances that could be made available to its affiliated members, to enable access to a uniformity of cover across the grassroots game that hadn’t been seen before. 

The overarching objective for the NGIS has been to ensure that insurance products, specifically tailored to the needs of grassroots football, could be made available to all.
In 2012, Bluefin Sport was appointed by The FA to deliver the NGIS.

The NGIS provides two core covers – Public Liability and Personal Accident.

It is compulsory for all affiliated clubs to have public liability insurance and all affiliated teams to have personal accident insurance.

When affiliating to Cumberland FA via the Whole Game System, Clubs may choose to opt-in to the NGIS public liability insurance.

You can also opt-in to the NGIS personal accident insurance via your County FA affiliation, to meet the minimum cover required.

If you require a higher level of personal accident cover, this can be purchased from Bluefin Sport online, or by completing an application form and returning it to them in the post, with a cheque in remittance of the premium payable.

Details of the minimum cover required by Cumberland FA can be found on the Bluefin Sport website, please click here.

Clubs have the option to purchase the compulsory insurances either via the NGIS or elsewhere. Other products are available and independent advice can be sourced from a licensed insurance broker.
