Championship and Sports Event Insurance

Lace up your boots because we have the best sports event insurance for you

Hosting a sports competition involves planning, preparation and research – but unforeseen circumstances can disrupt even the most well-organised sports event. Ensure the success of your sports competition or tournament through comprehensive event insurance.

Why does event insurance for a Sports Tournament matter?

Event insurance provides financial protection against unexpected cancellations, property damage, liability claims, and more. Don’t let unforeseen incidents jeopardise your hard work and investment.

Will the tournament or sports competition be covered by the insurance of the premises?

Not necessarily. Read your policy documents or talk to a specilised sports club insurance broker to check. We frequently supply to club owners and managers looking to run an event because more often than not, they do require additional liability insurance. Our quotes are suitable for anyone looking to run a championship or sporting event. 

A tournament or sports competition will most likely involve an influx of people, and also an increased risk. Risk is often measured by the usual number of people present at a venue, as well as the capacity of the venue. If a tournament means the venue is over capacity, incidents may not be fully covered by the venue’s insurance. A club broker will often recommend purchasing additional insurance for events – Insure Our Event are capable of providing this additional insurance.

What insurance do I need for running a Sporting Tournament or Championship?

Sports Event Cancellation Insurance – Your event could be cancelled due to natural disasters or unforeseen circumstances. Event cancellation insurance protects your non-refundable expenses, any costs for hiring services or equipment, as well as mitigating any financial losses.

Sports Event Public Liability Protection – Protect yourself against legal claims arising from injuries, property damage, or accidents at the event. Our public liability cover offers peace of mind, allowing you to focus on delivering a memorable sports competition without worrying about the financial implications of an accident or incident.

Adverse Weather Insurance – In the event of bad weather affecting your tournament or championship, we are able to offer a special improved cover. We recommend this cover for outdoor events.

Employers’ Liability Insurance – Staff and volunteers will need to be insured by businesses, as is required by law. If you are employing any staff, or are organising any volunteers, hosts will need employers’ liability insurance to cover against claims.
