Esports insurance FAQs

What is Esports?

Esports stands for electronic sports and is a form of competition involving video games. Esports insurance is a type of specialist insurance which is designed to protect event organisers from liability should a claim be made against them. 

Why do I need Esports insurance? 

Esports has become an increasingly popular type of event since the advancement of technology, but it’s a type of sporting event which comes with its own unique risks, including:

  • Transmission failure - system damage can lead to the failure of transmission which impacts the ability for players to participate.

  • Property loss or damage - Esports events involve the use of specialist technical equipment which could become damaged. 

  • Cyber crime - data security is a risk in the environment that Esports takes place in and you don’t want any of the participants’ personal data to be compromised during your event. 

  • Event cancellation - conditions outside of your control could lead to event cancellation, leading to financial loss. 

Esports insurance will help to protect against these potential disruptions and concerns, giving you the peace of mind you need when running your Esports event.
