What is Football Foundation insurance?
Football Foundation insurance protects the charity arms of football clubs against the risks associated with running community projects and schemes. It allows foundations to ensure they are protected under a single, easy to manage policy. It’s likely that some insurance such as basic public liability cover is provided by your league, however our experience has taught us that cover against cyber threats, trustees’ indemnity and events are not always provided.
A Football Foundation or community project is likely to have increased risk due to the nature of the activities they run and it’s important they have the right levels of cover.
