SportsInsurance4U, part of the General & Medical Group, have today announced the launch of their new professional football player insurance ‘ELIXIR’. Their Elixir Career Ending Sports Insurance provides the ultimate package offering cover to players who receive an irreparable injury which could damage their future and end their football career.
“The Professional Footballers Association (PFA) has previously stated that on average 30 players a year across the UK’s football leagues have their career ended prematurely due to injury.” – LawInSport.com
Football injuries are inevitable and can be career changing as well as life-changing for the individual and their families. This specially designed policy provides peace of mind and financial protection for their future, including cover for Permanent and Temporary Total Disability, Catastrophic injury and Accidental Death. Other key benefits include Retraining/Education benefits and access to 24/7 counselling & information service.
Head of Marketing Michael O’Connor said “The launch of ELIXIR through SportsInsurance4U is incredibly exciting. The idea came as a result of our close relationship with some of the UK’s top Football Clubs, and the need to provide their players with the best coverage possible.”
