Specialist sports insurance for:
The regulation Gaelic football game is contested between two teams of 15 players each, with the objective being to score points by kicking or striking the ball with a stick into a goal shaped the same as a set of rugby posts, which consists of two sections. Striking the ball into the lower section of the goal scores three points, while hitting it over the crossbar, but between the two uprights, scores one point.
Physical contact is allowed, in the form of shoulder-to-shoulder tackling, but much contact which would be allowed in a game of rugby is not permitted in Gaelic football.
Nevertheless, Gaelic football player insurance is a valuable precaution against injuries which can happen accidentally while playing the game, as it can help meet any unexpected medical costs, and offer protection against loss of earnings should any player need time off work to recover from an injury sustained while playing.
Speak to one of our advisors about our Gaelic football insurance cover today, and you'll realise why it isn't a good idea to leave such things to the luck of the Irish.
Why do I need personal sports insurance?
Unfortunately, with most sports, there’s often a risk of suffering an injury which could not only stop you playing, but also affect your ability to work and earn for a period of time. We offer Personal Accident and Loss of Earnings cover to help with unexpected costs, so you can focus on getting back into the game.
Take a look at the following examples of why every amateur sports player and participant should have specialist insurance:
- You injure yourself during a session and require physio treatment.
- You suffer an injury during a session which means you can’t work and earn for a period of time.
- Your sports equipment is damaged, lost or stolen.
- You accidentally injure another participant during a session and they decide to take legal action against you.
