What is the National Game Insurance Scheme (NGIS)?

In 2011 The FA set out to raise the standards of insurance and provide a uniformity of cover across the grassroots game that hadn’t been seen before.

In developing the required solutions, they carried out a rigorous tender process involving the leading brokers in the sport insurance market. In July 2012 Bluefin Sport were successfully appointed by The FA as the broker to deliver, what is now known as, the National Game Insurance Scheme (NGIS).

The overarching objective for the NGIS has been to ensure that competitive and robust insurance products, specifically tailored to the needs of grassroots football, were made available to all.

Since it’s launch, the NGIS has successfully achieved these milestones, with thanks to an ever growing number of County FAs choosing to support the scheme. The numbers speak for themselves.

Read the small print. It can highlight big differences.

The NGIS has given football insurance a good refresh. It’s always been more than just about price. It’s about creating protection that responds when needed most.

We believe the NGIS policy wordings are market-leading and have the ability to ensure wider protection than many other products available. Other insurance providers may appear to be offering similar products but beneath the surface the policy wording definitions can make a big difference to how the benefits being provided can be interpreted in the event of a claim.

As the trusted NGIS provider, we work closely with The FA so that you can be assured of transparency and carefully crafted policy wordings that provide clear, unambiguous protection.

Deciding what suits you.

To make sure your County FA and all affiliated clubs, teams & leagues have adequate and relevant insurance, our policies can be designed around your particular needs. Essentially, the NGIS provides two core covers - Legal Liability and Personal Accident.
