My Club Group, has announced the launch of My Club Insure, which will specialise in personal health insurance for sports people. My Club Insure will offer flexible plans for sports club members, whilst the club will also earn a commission every time a policy is taken out.
My Club Insure is part of the larger www.myclubgroup.com offering which creates personalised websites using the club colour, logo and club name. The aim is for the club to share their new site with their members and supporters, giving them access to exclusive deals on everything from Rail Travel, Kit and Equipment, Insurance, Property, Funding, Energy compare & switch. Many more offers are also nearing completion for launch. For every product or service used, the club earns revenue and the member also gets cashback on the funds they raise for the club.
With over 50% of the 150,000 Grassroots Sports Clubs in the UK, operating at breakeven or worse, and with funding from governing bodies, government and local authorities becoming harder to access, clubs throughout the UK are struggling to survive.
Graham Anderson, My Club Group, Chief Operating Officer said:
“My Club Insure is the latest offer from My Club. It allows club members to benefit from great, flexible health insurance, whilst at the same time allowing the club to benefit as they earn a commission. Revenue is needed for ground fees, kit, changing rooms, equipment, referees, energy, training facilities, water and rates. The list is endless and that is where we come in. My Club offers no risk, no cost revenue opportunities that allows clubs to raise finance and let Grassroots Sport thrive.”
My Club Insure is supported by Jade Insurance Consultants Ltd, the specialist health insurance broker.
Speaking about the partnership, Martin Kemp, MD of Jade Insurance said: “We are delighted to support My Club Insure with a selection of bespoke health insurance packages for sports people. With flexible policies starting from as little as £6.60 per month, every member of the club can benefit from insuring themselves against illness and injury. It is a win-win for both the member and the clubs. The members save money, whilst the club earn commission.”
My Club is backed by several the UK’s leading sportsmen, including Sam Allardyce, Sol Campbell, Lawrence Dallaglio, Michael Vaughan, Chubby Chandler, Adrian Morley and Chris Sheasby.
My Club Ambassador, Sam Allardyce said: “Grassroots Clubs and Teams are the lifeblood of sport in the UK. Every professional who has graced the hallowed turf of Wembley, scored a try at the Millennium Stadium, teed up for The Open at St Andrews or hit a cover drive at Lords has started at their local club.
More importantly, hundreds of thousands of grassroots members play every week and pass their passion onto the next generation, benefiting both the individual and society in general. The impact of sport on local communities cannot be under-estimated. However, with funding always difficult to access many Clubs need help to raise the revenues needed. That is where My Club helps by offering a free, bespoke service that allows Clubs to raise finance and let Grassroots Sport thrive.”
