All Sport Insurance was established in January 2016 to provide a one stop insurance solution, for sports professionals, clubs and player organisations.
Whether be it be Private Car, Household, Landlords, Travel, Commercial or Career Ending Insurance we can offer competitive premiums. At All Sport we operate a private client style service where individuals have a personal account manager to service their requirements. We recognise that sport is not a nine until five occupation and thus our clients can contact us during every day of the week and outside of traditional opening hours.
The business model is built around providing a high-quality service to each individual to support their unique demands and needs. We work closely with Clubs, Governing Bodies, Player Associations and Welfare Officers establishing close relationships and providing a service to their members. We are proud partners of The Professional Cricketers Association, Professional Jockeys Association, The Welsh Rugby Players Association and Rugby League Cares and continue to expand our services across a wide range of sports and sporting organisations.

The aim for all of our projects is to either attract new fans, or strengthen the relationship between existing fans and their club by providing leading fan experiences.
We work with great clients, including Manchester City Football Club and Manchester City Council. We’re very grateful that the ambition of our clients matches our own. In the last year we have produced 2 world class events; the Olympic Homecoming Parade and Cityzens Weekend, where we unveiled Pep Guardiola as the club’s new manager. That ambition allows us to try new things and push boundaries.
We’re looking forward to a year of developing our core service offering and adding more talent to the team.
