WILL THE NATIONAL GAME INSURANCE SCHEME POLICIES PROVIDE COVER DURING COVID-19?
The National Game Insurance Scheme provides two forms of insurance protection, personal accident and legal liability. Both products operate from 1 July to 30 June each calendar year.
- 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).
- 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.
Provided your club/team adhere to current Government/FA COVID-19 guidelines, these policies can continue to provide protection during this crisis.
Please also note that the Personal Accident insurance policy does not include sickness or disease, so there would not be any cover or benefits available in respect of a person who contracts COVID-19, (or any sickness or disease). It is purely a personal accident policy so will continue to provide insurance protection that it has always been designed for.
All policies are subject to the standard policy terms, conditions and exclusions and can be found in the policy wordings which you can download from this website.
Please play safe and stay safe.
