Insurance Information

The FFA National Insurance Programme website is provided so that Players & Club Administrators throughout Australia may have immediate access to the policy benefits and procedures of the insurance programme.

FFA, Gow-Gates and Sportscover remain committed to providing the football community with a first class Sports Insurance Programme whilst maintaining the affordability of registration.

Whilst the plan provides basic levels of cover for players and others participating in Football, it is not all encompassing (this is necessary to keep the cost of insurance affordable for players) and does not seek to replace the need for private health and other insurances.

FFA encourages all players and officials to take out their own private health insurance, life insurance and ‘Top Up’ coverage over and above the coverage provided under this plan. Gow-Gates can assist in regard to ‘Top Up’ insurance and other insurance requirements.

Insurance, all Club Executives should make themselves aware of the Following Insurance procedures and the guidelines of the National Insurance Program (NIP) to enable the correct feedback to your participants.
