    How to stay safe on a football tour

    If you’re preparing to hit the roads and show off your fancy footwork this summer, it’s beneficial to be aware of some simple tips that will help you stay safe on a football tour. When you’re away with your team, the last thing you want is to miss out on the drama on the pitch and all the fun activities off it because of injury. Here are some steps you can take to avoid accidents and steer clear of football injuries.

    How to stay safe on a football tour

    When you’re on a football tour, you want to be able to participate on and off the pitch. You’ll have training sessions and games planned, but tours also involve fun activities and experiences that enable you to enjoy the local area. When you’re playing, take these pointers on board to stay safe on a football tour:

    • Make sure you’ve got all the equipment you need
    • Tackle properly and be vigilant
    • Play by the rules
    • Always warm up and cool down thoroughly
    • Rest if you have an injury
    • Keep your temper in check

    When you’re not on the pitch, whether you’re in the UK or you’re abroad, take these travel tips into consideration:

    • Leave valuables in the hotel safe
    • Don’t carry large sums of cash on you
    • Stick with the group at all times
    • Keep a phone with you just in case you get into trouble

    Claiming compensation for an accident on a football tour

    If you’ve been injured playing football or you’ve been involved in an accident at a football stadium, you may be considering trying to claim compensation. Compensation isn’t awarded to every person who happens to sustain an injury. It is reserved for those who are injured through no fault of their own. If you were injured by another player who acted recklessly or you picked up an injury as a result of using faulty equipment, for example, you may have a case for compensation, as you weren’t liable for the accident. You could also claim if you were involved in an accident on a tour bus, which was caused by a negligent driver or you sustained injuries at the hotel as a result of negligence on the part of the owner.

    If you’d like to find out more about making a no-win, no-fee claim for a football accident, call Accident Advice Helpline now on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone.
