Sportscover Australia supports national bushfire recovery effort

In light of the fire emergency engulfing much of our wonderful country, Sportscover Australia wishes to convey our heartfelt desire to contribute to the national recovery effort in support of the communities ravaged by bushfires and drought over the past weeks and months.

We wish to extend the following support offer to our sport, fitness and leisure clients:

Sportscover Australia is making available up to 100 unconditional grants of $250 to assist eligible sports associations, sports clubs, gymnasiums and recreational facilities replace sports equipment lost as a result of bushfire during the current summer months.

We appreciate that applying for such assistance may not be a priority for the people who have been most affected by the fires. We are therefore extending the offer to them through their insurance broker, as the broking community will be very much aware of the nature of any loss their/our clients may have suffered. Sportscover is writing to all our broker partners individually with the necessary information and application process.

Sportscover is Australia’s leading specialist underwriting agency providing casualty (liability), personal accident, property, travel, cyber and contingency insurance to the sport, fitness and leisure sectors for over 30 years. We offer a full-service underwriting and claims function and are proud of our 84% historical client retention rate. Given the market position we enjoy, due in no small part to the tremendous relationships we have been able to establish with the broking community, we are pleased to be able to make this offer in support of the impacted communities.

We stand ready to assist our clients with their insurance needs at this most challenging time, and particularly in relation to any bushfire related claims needing to be lodged – our National Claims Manager, Craig Wilson (, and his team will look forward to speaking with each and every affected client.
Sportscover extends its sincerest sympathies and best wishes to all our fellow Australians impacted through the current bushfire crisis.
