For athletes, injuries and illness are associated with massive financial consequences and emotional distress. At the same time, clubs and teams are at risk of losing capital investment made in players. So that athletes and their clubs can keep their head in the game, Special HDI Sports Insurance offers bespoke cover to suit specific needs. Unlike many of our competitors, past injuries do not automatically exclude athletes from cover.

Overview of benefits

HDI Sports Insurance policies offer individual cover for injuries and illnesses, even if the affected athlete is at fault. Our broad, market-leading offering includes cover for:

  • Accidental death
  • Illness
  • Injury
  • Permanent total disability

Professional athletes can protect themselves against the financial losses resulting from a disability with HDI Professional Sports Insurance – Individual Cover. The monthly payments can be tailored to meet individual needs based on the agreed daily rate with a choice of starting date after 42, 60 or 90 days. In the case of a permanent health impairment, the affected athlete receives a contractually agreed one-off payment.

HDI Professional Sports Insurance Market Value Cover enables professional athletic clubs to protect themselves against the financial losses resulting from the non-availability of their athletes due to temporary or permanent sports disability. The key factor determining the level of benefit is the regular salary received by the athletes, or the affected athlete´s market value if they sustain irreparable injury. The insurance protection also covers events (such as a bus accident or terrorist attack) in which several insured people are injured or die at the same time.
