Insure yourself with the FSF’s affiliate policy
This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.
If you run an FSF affiliated supporters’ club, which is free, you can apply to insure away travel. The policy even covers league match ticket costs in some circumstances.
Supporters’ groups across England and Wales often arrange their own coach travel to games. Some clubs don’t have ‘official’ travel, some prefer the extra flexibility that doing it themselves brings, and some just want to raise a few quid to keep their supporters’ groups going.
If your supporters’ club arranges travel they can protect themselves against costs incurred through league match cancellation, postponement, or abandonment. The policy also covers mechanical failure and road accidents which prevent attendance. At the same time the scheme provides Personal Accident cover to members travelling to league matches, divisional meetings or events organised by the supporters’ club.
All FSF affiliated supporters’ clubs can join the FSF’s Insurance Trust League Match Day Insurance Policy, run through ACE European Group Ltd. Costings vary on a case-by-case basis depending on how much you pay for travel. Cover costs 4.2% of the previous year’s total travel costs and can be worked out on a pro-rata basis.
