Sportsmen and women are typically viewed as a high risk for car insurance providers, irrespective of the applicant’s age, gender, income or sporting discipline. Play-Ex connects you with vehicle insurance providers who understand that it’s unfair to pigeonhole sports professionals in this way.


Sports professionals can attract high home insurance premiums due to their public profile, or the expensive nature of equipment and other possessions potentially kept on their property. We direct you to home insurance providers who can provide you with a fair premium that’s tailored to your sporting occupation.


With every sport, there’s a risk of suffering an injury which could compromise your ability to earn for a period of time. Through Play-Ex, you can source injury insurance to help you cover unexpected costs, so that you can concentrate on getting back to peak fitness with peace of mind.

Career Ending Injury

Sports professionals push their bodies to the limits, and this can often incur high costs. Career-ending insurance compensates an athlete should the athlete’s career end through injury, accident or illness. Play-Ex enables you to find the right insurance providers for this crucial element of financial planning.


Life insurance pays out a cash sum to those closest to you in the event of your death, helping to minimise the financial impact such an occurrence might otherwise have on loved ones. It is especially worth considering life insurance as it can financially protect people – such as children or a partner – who depend on the money you earn. Play-Ex sources life insurance providers who can design policies which discriminate between higher and lower risk sporting environments so that you get the fairest deal.

Income protection

The unique nature and earning-potential of pro sport make it challenging for sports men and women to source adequate income protection. Key considerations include accident, sickness or unemployment cover, which can provide regular monthly payments for an extended period should disability, long-term injury or involuntary redundancy prevent you from playing and earning from your sport. Play-Ex guides you towards industry-specific insurance providers who can create a clear, cost-friendly policy for your unique requirements as a sports person.


Standard travel insurance typically holds many limitations for professional sports people, with even sports-specific policies excluding cover for athletes who are paid to compete. Play-Ex connects you with specialist travel insurers who enable you, your family and team to pursue your dreams while on the road with complete peace of mind.


Sports professionals are often locked into short-term fixed contracts, which means they are often bracketed as a high risk, despite their potential high net worth. The situation is made worse because standard mortgage providers consider professional athletes to be a high injury risk.

Play-Ex connects you with specialist mortgage brokers who will understand the details of your professional profile and the risks of your specific discipline, enabling you to source a deal that suits your requirements perfectly.


When you’re trying to concentrate on your game, you don’t want to be distracted by managing financial affairs.

Accountancy professionals take care of all aspects of your accounts so that you can stay focused on being the best you can be, while knowing that you’re making the most of your earnings.

Financial Advice

The unpredictable income path of a professional athlete can throw up any number of unique and complex financial hurdles.

Combined with the relatively short earning window offered by most sporting disciplines, even the highest-earning athletes can easily run into financial difficulty without competent financial planning advice.

Play-Ex links you with trusted financial planning specialists who can give you the guidance you need on every step of your journey in professional sport.

Currency Transfers

Currency Transfers offer a safe and secure way to make international payments, in a way that might be quicker and more cost-efficient than using your bank.

You might need them to make one-off payments, to send money as a gift, to cover a deposit for an overseas property, or to regularly send salary or pension payments in the event of moving abroad.

By connecting with services through Play-Ex, you can rest assured that you’re reaching transfer companies to meet your needs at the best rates possible.
