county fa tailored solutions

Helping to secure a sustainable future for the National Game.

We've given football insurance a shake up and a fresh approach. The NGIS is not just about providing good value products. It's also a fresh concept to encourage education and promote a risk management approach that should in turn help to provide a sustainable future for the game.

Ready-made solutions for your County

And there's more...

There are a range of benefits made available to CFA's that choose to join the NGIS. We feel that transparency in our agreements with CFA's is key to ensure a fair system across the board so we've incorporated a number of meaningful benefits that we can automatically include at no additional cost to you.

  • Public Liability - £10,000,000 for County FA organised activities and for County FA registered match officials. 
  • Directors and Officers Liability - £500,000 limit for CFA officers, committee members, directors or trustees (with the option to increase the limit, subject to an additional premium).
  • Free retrospective liability cover included - 3 years retrospective liability cover for CFAs that join the scheme from previously having a ˜claims made" basis policy wording. This means that the policy can respond to a claim (in the future) even if the event causing the claim happened at any time in the 3 years before your new policy with us starts.
Plus, if you arrange a group personal accident policy for your member clubs, you will also benefit from personal accident insurance for your council members and employees whilst on CFA business.
