Arsenal Football Club has today announced Cover-More as its official travel insurance partner.
The agreement is set to run for three seasons and will give the global specialist and integrated travel insurance and medical assistance provider a number of rights and areas of exclusive access.
The company, which operates in 14 countries, will create Arsenal travel insurance, car-hire insurance and match ticket cancellation insurance solutions for Gunners supporters attending and travelling to games.
Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We’re pleased to welcome Cover-More into our family of official partners. After our hugely successful pre-season tour in Sydney, we are delighted to be partnering with this leading Australian-headquartered brand on a global basis.
“I’m certain that we can support Cover-More’s global growth plans while providing our supporters with insurance packages that help and protect them at home and on the road.”
Mike Emmett, Cover-More Chief Executive Officer, said: “We aim to protect the individual Arsenal fan experience when they want to go to a game, whether they’re travelling from Islington or India, Sydney or San Francisco.
“We will employ technology to customise our proposition for each fan and use geo-location to offer them meaningful types of protection products. Examples are a ticket-protection product that also rewards fans if the team wins on the field or switch-on-switch-off travel insurance products for diehard Gunners fans whether they live within or outside the UK.
“Arsenal Football Club has thrived on a pioneering and innovative spirit throughout their 125 years in existence. They make their fans proud wherever they are in the world and it is that focus on innovation, the fan experience and their loyal worldwide following that makes this an exciting partnership for Cover-More.”
As part of the agreement, Cover-More will also become an official partner of the north London outfit’s Emirates Stadium Tour experience.
