Have you recently suffered a major injury while playing football? 

There’s nothing worse than watching your mates playing footy when you’re unable to get back on the field. 

And that’s not to mention the financial burden of paying for medical, imaging and treatment costs on top of your team fees, new football boots and league registration. And the thought of not being able to get back to performing at your best while putting yourself at further risk of reaggravating your injury can be unsettling.

We get it, we really do! Participating in local football can be costly, especially considering the rising cost of living and other financial responsibilities you have to manage. 

However, did you know that your league registration actually entitles you to make an insurance claim to treat any injuries suffered during training or games? Provided that you’re registered at the time of your injury, you can now access up to $2000 to pay for your medical, some imaging and physiotherapy bills.
