PNGRFL signs three-year insurance partnership with Marsh Ltd


The Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League (PNGRFL) has signed a ‘Three-year Insurance Partnership’ with Marsh Limited on Tuesday, May 14th, 2024, at Papua New Guinea National Rugby League Competition’s (PNGNRLC) Conference Room in Port Moresby.

 

Marsh is a global leading insurance broker and risk advisor with a presence in over 130 countries, including Papua New Guinea. They have been operating in PNG for the last 40 years through their Port Moresby and Lae offices.

 

This important partnership will provide insurance coverage for all registered players and officials under PNGRFL, as well as the junior and senior programs, and other sanctioned PNGRFL’s competitions or tournaments.

 

In the event that any registered player or official gets a serious injury during game days, that particular player or official is entitled to insurance coverage – that is in terms of having the benefit of seeking medical treatment or attention.

 

PNGRFL CEO, Stanley Hondina, expressed his delight to sign this very important insurance partnership agreement with Marsh Ltd, which has seen over 35, 000 players and officials registered this year.

 

“We currently have a self-insured insurance model, which has always worked well for us and this partnership with Marsh allows their expertise to enhance that model, and provide the expertise around our growing game – that is rugby league,” said Hondina.

 

“With 35, 000 registered players and officials, the risks associated with injuries increases, so this partnership will give comfort to parents, players and officials alike that they will be taken care of should any major injuries occur.”

 

Marsh Limited CEO, Graeme Murray, said he was pleased to partner with PNGRFL to insure the players and officials, and looked forward to a stronger relationship this year and into the future.

 

“With the game growing, this announcement will allow us to take care of all operational matters when it comes to insurance, and let the PNGRFL focus on running their programs in PNG and abroad,” Murray said.
