Footballs on grass


Personal Accident and Public Liability Insurance

What is the National Game Insurance Scheme?

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.

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.

In 2012, Marsh Sport (formerly 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 Hertfordshire FA via Club Portal, Clubs may choose to opt-in to the NGIS Public Liability insurance and also add Personal Accident insurance for each team on the club's affiliation.

Details of the minimum cover required by Hertfordshire FA can be found on the Hertfordshire FA page of the Marsh Sport website.

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
