Insuring the biggest sports events on earth

Major sporting events such as Euro 2024 and the Olympics excite and unite billions of people around the world, but for event organizers, delivering such spectacles is not without its challenges, whether this is the potential for disruption caused by extreme weather or a cyber incident. Years of experiences, learnings, and risk management planning ensures the shows go on, as does the support of insurance, which has an integral role to play in helping enable such amazing events to take place.
