League Insurance

    •  

Introduction

As part of the League Sanctioning process Leagues are required to ensure that they have adequate Legal Liability Insurance in place.

For the 2014/15 season Bluefin Sport are offering two options of Legal Liabilities cover through the National Game Insurance Scheme:

"Countycover” and “Countycover Plus” (for full details see brochure in the documents section at the bottom of the page). 

If you are intending to apply for League sanctioning please let Cornwall FA know if you would like to purchase Countycover OR Countycover plus for your League. If you have an alternative cover in place e.g. through Council facilities please could you email us evidence of this at the time of application.

- Player-to-player cover defence costs only

Countycover Plus

The premiums per league are £39 for Countycover Plus. This includes:

Leaguecover (optional add-on for Leagues)

Bluefin Sport has also introduced Leaguecover as an additional and optional product for Leagues and competitions (at Step 5 and below) this year, as they have received an increasing number of enquiries from Leagues wishing to insure the trophies and contents that they are responsible for. 

IMPORTANT: Leaguecover is an additional offer and not a substitution for Legal Liability insurance.
