Specialist Insurance for Sports Events

Our Sports Event Insurance covers a wide range of activities so whether you’re organising a running race, a triathlon or a football tournament, we have the policy for you.

No two events are the same, so building a policy that is right for your activity is where we shine. Cover ranges from protection against potential Public Liability claims, to covering the equipment you rely on to deliver your event against loss, theft and damage.

We cover hundreds of different sports events in the UK every year, from single day activities to longer, week long competitions. You pay just for the cover you actually need.

When organising a sporting event it’s important to understand exactly what protection you require from the many potential risks you could face. Get an instant quote online for your sports event by complete our short quote form below.

What Insurance Do Sports Events Need?

If you are organising a sports event there are a number of things that you should consider adding to your policy.

Public Liability

Covering you for your legal costs and damages should a participant or member of the public get injured or suffer property damage, Public Liability up to £10 million is included in all our event policies. Claims in this scenario could occur because of poor course maintenance in the case of a race or improper safety set-up for spectators.

Equipment Cover

Most sporting events will use some sort of equipment. Our cover can protect you against damage and loss to that property. The level of cover needed on to your policy will depend on the event you are holding, with obstacle course races likely to need more cover than a cricket match, for example.

Employers' Liability

If you employ members of staff, such as stewards or volunteers, Employers’ Liability protects you if they were injured or suffered property damage and blamed you as the organiser. We’ll handle the legal costs to defend you and any necessary settlement.

Event Cancellation Cover​

Cancellation, Abandonment & Postponement Insurance will cover you for your irrecoverable costs incurred as a result of the unavoidable cancellation, abandonment or postponement of the entire event for reasons beyond your control.

I was really pleased with how my claim was settled. It gave me great confidence that Protectivity covers me when the worst happens.

Fantastic claims handling

No matter how well your event is operated, accidents do happen. That’s why we aim to make these scenarios as stress-free as possible.
