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.
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.
Bluefin Sport is The FA’s appointed insurance broker to deliver the NGIS. The NGIS provides two core covers - Legal Liability and Personal Accident.
A group liability policy is available for clubs affiliated to Somerset FA to opt-in to, should they wish to. Clubs wishing to opt-in to the NGIS group liability policy should do so via the Whole Game System, at affiliation stage.
All affiliated football teams must have personal accident insurance, which meets the minimum requirements of Somerset FA.
The personal accident insurance available via the NGIS can be purchased from Bluefin Sport online, or by completing an Application Form.
How can I find out more about the NGIS?
To learn more about NGIS insurances, and the minimum requirements for personal accident insurance, as well as purchase a personal accident policy, please refer to the Bluefin Sport website: www.bluefinsport.co.uk/somerset
