Bluefin, the FAW’s insurance providers, have issued an update:
“In light of the recent government announcements and upon confirmation all grassroots football in Wales is to cease it is important to note that neither the Countycover Liability insurance package or Personal Accident insurance arranged through the Football Association of Wales will respond to claims if clubs continue to provide sessions which is against the advice of the Government and Governing Body.
“This includes clubs arranging matches, training sessions, friendlies, competitions and tournaments.
“Furthermore, as Personal Accident insurance does not provide cover in respect of Sickness, Disease or Illness, there is no cover for a person contracting COVID-19 whilst playing or training.
“There is an obligation for all officials to take all reasonable precautions to ensure the well being of members and we thank you for your co-operation at this unprecedented time.”
