The old mandatory Public Liability policy (formerly presented by Sportsguard) has been replaced by Bluefin's Countycover Plus product.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.
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.
It is mandatory for all Cambridgeshire clubs to purchase Personal Accident Insurance (Standard Cover) for all their teams. You can purchase this direct from the FA’s National Game Insurance Scheme (NGIS) brokers Bluefin by clicking on the link below:
This must be purchased for all your teams BEFORE you submit your affiliation forms. The purchase of Personal Accident Insurance is an essential part of the affiliation process and you will have to provide proof of your PAI before your club affiliation is confirmed.
If you choose 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 1st June (Adult Clubs) or 1st July (Youth Clubs) in order for us to affiliate your club.
In ALL cases, no affiliation can be processed until Personal Accident cover has been purchased in full for all of your club’s team/s.
You will recall that last season the Cambridgeshire FA committed to using the Benevolent Fund to subsidise existing clubs (i.e. clubs formed prior to the 11-12 season) with the purchase of Personal Accident Insurance. We will continue to support these clubs with a 20% discount who purchase their cover from Bluefin.
This discount will automatically be applied when you purchase your Bluefin insurance.
This 20% discount only applies to the basic level of cover.
Adult team subsidy is £5.20 per team (off the premium price of £26 per team)
Youth teams (U13 and over) subsidy is £2.80 per team (off the premium price of £14 per team)
Youth teams (U12 and under) subsidy is £2.00 per team (off the premium price of £10 per team)
