Understanding sport from the ground up

All sports carry a wide range of risks – from accidents resulting in injury, to theft or damage at stadiums and training facilities. But with the right insurance cover, you can protect both the health and safety of your people and the value of your facilities.

Insider’s expertise

Lockton Sport works with amateur and professional athletes, players, teams and clubs worldwide, as well as associations, governing bodies, event organisers and sponsors. Because we understand sport from the ground up, including professional contracts, our advice to you comes from an insider’s point of view. We know the challenges you face.

We’ll assess your risks with you, to make sure you’ve considered every eventuality. Before you insure a player against a career-ending injury, for example, we’d prompt you to think about what happens if they’re also out of action over the medium term. And if you’re insuring yourself, we’ll talk you through how insurance can pick up where your contract cover ends.

Case study

Premier League Footballer

When a Premier League footballer suffered an injury, we were on his side all the way. When it became clear that the injury had the potential to end his career, we started collating details of his surgery, medical reports and rehabilitation to build a claim file. By the time he announced his retirement, we had all the information needed to support his claim to the insurer. They settled within six weeks. He’s now financially secure, and he’s switched careers from player to coach.

I chose Lockton Sport to handle my Career Ending Insurance Policy and I’m glad I did! I was forced to retire recently due to a serious injury and without their guidance I may have been left without any protection. They acted in my best interests and although this has been one of the worst times of my life I have been able to relax knowing I’m financially secure thanks to the Lockton Sport Team and the coverage they recommended for me.
