Football fans go crazy and drive up insurance claims



With the World Cup kicking off later this month, British insurer Aviva PLC is hoping not to see a repeat of its experience during the last tournament when football-related claims rose by 82%.

According to a statement from Aviva, enthusiasm for the sport during the 2018 World Cup led to home insurance claims averaging £530 ($615).

Claim incidents included a laptop falling into a bath while a customer was watching a match, a boy burning a carpet while trying to dry his football kit with a hairdryer and a drone being shot down by a football being kicked into the air.

A customer compounded the problem when they left their phone in a taxi on their way home from a match and the driver refused to return it saying the customer did not leave a big enough tip.
