Local focus with global capacity.

Gallagher is one of the world’s largest insurance and risk management companies. While the focus of our brokers is firmly on Aussie sport, a global capacity means they can also draw on the expertise of specialist Gallagher colleagues from around the world.


One of the world’s largest insurance broking and risk management companies, Gallagher has been protecting clients and their interests since 1927. The Gallagher story began 90 years ago with a trusted insurance agent named Arthur Gallagher. A pioneer of risk mitigation, Arthur analysed exposure and safeguarded his clients against loss with ground breaking insurance solutions.

Today, Gallagher is a global business helmed by Arthur’s grandson, our CEO Pat Gallagher. We’re recognised as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies and have over 25,000 insurance and risk specialists operating in more than 30 countries. Yet Gallagher remains true to the vision Arthur had all those years ago of a relationships-driven business built on trust and effective client partnerships.


Operating in Australia since 1985, Gallagher has more than 2,500 expert staff spread over 60 metro and regional locations across Australia and New Zealand.

From home-grown Aussie start-ups through to multinational organisations, we work with our clients to structure and manage their insurance and risk mitigation programs. Gallagher’s specialist expertise extends far beyond sport and spans a wide variety of industries from construction, energy and mining through to manufacturing, financial services and healthcare.

Coupled with our global capability, this cross-industry expertise allows Gallagher’s sporting specialists to tap into an incredible knowledge base, unlock new opportunities and constantly innovate the way we approach sporting insurance and risk mitigation.


Why am I not covered for the ‘Medicare Gap’?

By law, this policy can’t cover medical expenses that are covered or partly-covered by Medicare. This includes the difference between the medical expense and the Medicare rebate – commonly known as the ‘Medicare Gap’.  For more information about costs typically covered by Medicare and how this effects Personal Accident Insurance, visit the Claims page

Should people also consider taking out additional personal coverage?

No sporting insurance program should be considered as “comprehensive” and as such we encourage all participants to take out Private Health, Life and Income Protection Insurance according to their own individual needs and circumstances. It is an individual’s responsibility to ensure that they have adequate insurance cover for their own needs.  If you’re unsure where to start, speaking with one of our Gallagher insurance brokers is a great first step.

Our club hires out our facilities to other bodies. Are we insured for this?

If your club or association hires out its club facilities to other bodies, there is a need for you to ensure that all parties using your fields or facilities have their own Public Liability Insurance. This can be confirmed by the other body supplying a Certificate of Currency as proof of its validity. The insurance program will protect you as the property owner but not for other activities at your facilities that are not organised by your club or association.

    Insurance can be extremely difficult. Whether it be the tailored expert business advice, sports
    insurance advice, a life threatening overseas ski accident, servere storm damage to my personal
    home or a major business interruption claim, they have personally been here every time, to make
    sure that we were able to financially survive every event.”
