The existing mandatory Public Liability policy (formerly presented by Sportsguard) is being replaced by Bluefin's Countycover Plus product. This remains a Public Liability product including player to player cover, with improved levels of cover and a reduced price of £39 compared to £48 last season.
To read more about the extended levels of cover under this scheme, including Employers' Liability of £10m, Officers and Committee Liability of £5m and Professional Indemnity cover of £10m, please refer to the Countycover Plus booklet.
We will collect the premium for this cover as part of the affiliation process. This will be included in your affiliation invoice. The cover note will automatically be included when you receive your County handbook in early August. If you require a copy of the cover note before this date, please email email@example.com or telephone the office on 01223 209023.
From season 2012-13, it will be mandatory for all teams to have a minimum level of Personal Accident insurance known as Essential cover from Bluefin Sport.
The adoption of mandatory Personal Accident cover is part of the FA's desire to ensure all participants have some cover, with the option to enhance this cover as required. This is something that many of our clubs already do.
In this first year of the NGIS, the premium for Essential level of Personal Accident cover will be collected by the Cambridgeshire FA as part of the affiliation process. This will allow the Cambridgeshire FA to support you as we will be applying a discount of 20% to all Personal Accident premiums.
The standard NGIS premium for an adult team is £30, discounted to £24 per adult team. Youth teams will pay either £9.60 for teams at U12 or younger compared to the standard cost of £12, or £12.80 for teams at U13 or older compared to the standard cost of £16.
Please note that you will no longer be required to contribute to the Benevolent Fund as the Personal Accident scheme will replace this.
Please be aware that the Essential level of cover may not be sufficient for your teams. The NGIS allows for easy upgrades via the Bluefin web site www.bluefinsport.co.uk/ngis
To upgrade please note that you will only need to pay the difference between the level of cover you require and the pre-paid cost of essential cover. Therefore the upgrade for an adult team from Essential to Superior will cost £59.
For help and further details please refer to the Group Personal Accident Insurance for Youth and Adult teams booklet, visit the Bluefin website, or call 0845 872 5060.
If you chose to purchase Personal Accident cover from a different broker, please note that proof of cover will need to be provided to the Cambridgeshire FA by the 1st June in order for us to affiliate your club.
