Supporters Direct Scotland has launched its new affinity partnership with InsureDirect.co.uk which will see a potential financial boost from the pay back scheme to Football Supporters Trusts in Scotland and members of the ScottishFans.org network.
Formally announced at East End Park in Dunfermline last Friday (3rd May) in the company of former Dunfermline captain Roy Barry and Margaret Ross, Chair of the Pars Trust as well as directors from the two new affinity partners, the new fundraising scheme will bring financial benefits to fans and Trusts alike.
Mark Reid project manager at Supporters Direct Scotland, said: ““We’re pleased to put in place these two affinity partnerships in place that benefit Trust members and provide welcome new income into the Supporters Trusts. We hope to add more of these arrangements in the future to benefit all of our members.
The affinity partnership with ‘Insuredirect.co.uk’ includes discounted product offers for members of the Supporters Direct football Trust network within Scotland and “Scottish Fans” network partners. In additional the partner company themselves will give an additional proportion directly back to the trust or network member.
Margaret Ross, Chair of the Pars Trust said “I think anything that can help us raise money and also help our supporters save money in the process then it’s ideal and I look forward to seeing what we can make of it”.
David Nicholson from Insuredirect.co.uk said: “Insuredirect.co.uk is happy to enter into partnership with Supporters Direct, ScottishFans.org and the Supporters Trusts because we believe in what they, collectively, are trying to achieve – to keep the fans at the core of Scottish football is essential in ensuring the future of the game here in Scotland.”
InsureDirect.co.uk is a trading style of Park Place Insurance Services Limited. Park Place Insurance has been operating as an Insurance broker and intermediary since it’s formation in 1990. Based in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Park Place Insurance is one of the few remaining local brokers in Fife – a testament to the standard of services and products provided.
InsureDirect.co.uk championed the online insurance market in 2000 with the first ever online quote comparison site but subsequently moved away from this line of business due to the pollution of the process by agent fees, commissions and claims management fees which result in increased premiums and have impacted the sale and quality of service customers can currently obtain. This pollution is extremely evident in today’s marketplace.
InsureDirect.co.uk in its current form is an online insurance portal which allows our customers to find the best deals for both personal and commercial insurance products and purchase these products in an easy and hassle-free process. InsureDirect.co.uk puts the customer in direct contact with the best deals for our products and allows insurers to manage policies directly, including claims management, therefore keeping this pollution of the system to a minimum.
At present InsureDirect.co.uk can provide products for Motor, Home, Commercial and Travel Insurances, as well as a whole range of specialized insurance products, either through our online portal – www.InsureDirect.co.uk or via telephone on 01592 640011.
InsureDirect.co.uk is happy to be associated with Supporters Direct and Scottish Fans because we believe in what they are trying to achieve. To keep the fans at the core of Scottish football is essential in ensuring the future of our game. Like Supporters Direct, InsureDirect.co.uk prides itself on keeping its focus on the customer in the same way to ensure the ethical future of the Insurance sector.
