Pro Sports Teams and Venues Insurance from PHLY

Philadelphia Insurance Companies' professional sports package can fulfill a wide range of insurance needs for professional sports teams, leagues, stadiums, and arenas. Professional Sports Teams and Venue insurance will help your clients ensure they are protected from any potential bodily injury or property damage claims, along with the fans.

With a sports team and/or venue insurance policy, your clients can focus on the game, knowing they have the coverage they need should any unforeseen event occur and a claim arise.

Why Professional Sports Teams and Venues Need Specialized Insurance

In the sports industry, everyone involved faces risks, from the coaches and players to concession stand workers, janitors, and security guards. In the blink of an eye, your client could find themselves facing a serious claim that could have devastating financial consequences.

Take these common claim scenarios for example:

  • $200,000+ A spectator fell from an escalator and died from his injuries. A lack of supervision around the escalators was claimed.
  • $325,000+ The claimant fell over a cone in the stadium parking lot and fractured their kneecap. They claimed that the cone was placed in an area without proper signage to indicate that a hazard existed.
  • $500,000+ The claimant was struck in the head by a baseball in the stadium. They claimed there was not sufficient screening to prevent fly balls.

These types of claims could have serious financial consequences for your client's organization if they don't have the proper coverage. Due to the nature of sporting events, your clients may have extensive liability exposure that they need to prepare for.
