The esports world is an exciting and dynamic place, but it’s still relatively niche which means that many mainstream insurance companies have some catching up to do when it comes to understanding the risks. As tech insurance specialists - and as a technology business ourselves - we understand emerging technologies and their risks.
Our cover for esports coaches includes
The rapid growth of the esports industry means more competition every year, more players, higher stakes - and higher expectations on coaches. Our professional indemnity cover has been specifically designed with the needs of esports coaches in mind. It covers you for errors or mistakes you may make when coaching your players, and will cover your legal fees, as well as any awards made against you. This is full civil liability cover and is something that most coaches will specifically seek out to make sure they are covered for the professional advice they give their players. Our professional indemnity insurance also includes cover for cyber liability, which covers you for accidental data and privacy breaches.
Public liability insurance
During training, you’ll likely come into proximity with your players and may attend tournaments and other organised gaming events, in person. There is always the chance that - through no fault of your own - you either causing injury to a player, or damage their property. High value gaming equipment can be very costly to replace and accidental bodily injury to a competitor could result in their inability to compete. Protecting yourself against the financial repercussions of accidental bodily injury or property damage is a way to ensure you can continue to coach players to their full potential. That’s why we’ve tailored our public liability cover to protect you against the risks you face as an esports coach, all at an affordable price.
