Bluefin is the Association's provider to ensure that the very best cover is offered at the most competitive rates.
Public Liability Insurance
Suffolk FA are pleased to announce that we will once again be supplementing the cost of Public Liability Insurance in 2015-16. The overall £18 cost per Club will be 50% funded by Suffolk FA meaning Clubs are required to pay just £9 as part of the affiliation process for this insurance. This represents a contribution of approximately £3,000 to our grassroots community. Each Club will be covered to the FA's requirements to the effect of £10,000,000.
Personal Accident Insurance
With effect from the 2013-14 season it became mandatory for every team playing open age 11v11 football across the country to have Personal Accident Insurance in place. The minimum level of insurance cover clubs need is set by their County FA and for Clubs in Suffolk this is set at Bluefin Sports' Basic package. As part of our collective agreement with Bluefin Sports we have managed to reduce to the premium from the £26 per team paid last season to £23 per team for 2015-16 - A total saving of approximately £1,500 for our grassroots Clubs.
Clubs can choose to 'top up' their cover if they wish and they can purchase this online through www.bluefinsport.co.uk/ngis Clubs can also purchase Personal Accident Insurance for their youth teams via this link.
Clubs must have purchased Personal Accident Insurance via the affiliation which is administered by Bluefin Sport and in doing so they will receive a Club affiliation number for the 2015-16 season.
Further details about the public liability insurance cover clubs will automatically receive through affiliating with Suffolk FA for season 2015-16 is as per the documents at the bottom of this article.
