There are two types of insurance policies required for the season.
A) Personal accident insurance - this provides protection for someone who is injured in an accident whilst participating in a club activity. This policy could provide either a lump sum benefit or weekly amount (dependent on the cover selected).
B) Legal liability insurance - this provides protection against any claims made by third parties against you e.g. claims for slips and trips or damage to third party property as a result of your negligence.
A) Personal accident insurance
The NGIS policy provides cover in the event of an injury to players, committee members, manager, trainers and officials. We recommend that you look at the range of benefits on offer to ensure you purchase cover to meet your needs. We provide cover for both adult and youth teams.
As stipulated by The FA, personal accident insurance is compulsory for Adult 11-a-side teams and all formats of youth football.
For 2019/20 season your membership to Manchester FA, automatically includes the Basic Personal Accident insurance cover for Adult 11 a side teams and Personal Accident insurance for Youth teams, where applicable.
Adult teams - the Basic cover provided to affiliated adult teams does not include any Broken Bones benefit, or weekly/monthly benefit, meaning that if a player is injured and unable to work for a period of time, they will not receive any financial support to assist with any lost earnings they might incur. You can however, purchase additional insurance, to include a range of increased and additional benefits, including Broken Bones, as well as a weekly/monthly benefit, at reduced premiums. You can also purchase the Superior Extra top up covers.
Youth teams - you can also purchase additional insurance for your youth teams, again, at reduced premiums, by selecting Superior Gold or Superior Platinum, which provides a number of increased and additional benefits, including Permanent Total Disablement and Broken Bones. You can also purchase the Superior Extra top up covers.
