- Vit eru takksom og errin av, at Tryggingarfelagið Føroyar hevur játtað at vera høvuðsstuðul á Oyggjaleikunum á Jersey 2015. Tað er einki dulsmál, at tað er kostnaðarmikið at fara við stórum ferðalagi til Jersey, og tí kemur íkastið hjá Tryggingarfelagnum Føroyum væl við, sigur Anna Rein, nevndarlimur í ÍSF.

Samstarvssáttmálin hevur við sær, at Tryggingarfelagið Føroyar rindar fyri búnar og ávísa útgerð til allar luttakarar, ið eru við í Oyggjaleikahópinum. Oyggjaleikirnir eru størsta einstaka ítróttatiltak, ið Føroyar sum tjóð taka lut í.  Á leikunum á Jersey verða Føroyar umboðaðar í 13 ítróttagreinum. Talan verður um 136 íðkarar, umframt venjarar og leiðarar, so í alt verða umleið 175 ítróttafólk, ið vera við. Ítróttargreinarnar eru: Frælsur ítróttur, badminton, bogaskjóting, tennis, golf, kurvabóltur, borðtennis, svimjing, skjóting, flogbóltur, strandarflogbóltur, súkkling og triathlon.

- Tryggingarfelagið Føroyar er felagið fyri allar føroyingar. Tí kennist tað natúrligt, at vit stuðla Oyggjaleikum, har flestu ítróttargreinar, sum føroyingar íðka, eru umboðaðar. Vit eru glað fyri, at vit enn einaferð saman við ÍSF kunnu tryggja føroyska luttøku á Oyggjaleikunum,” sigur Regin Hammer, forstjóri á Tryggingarfelagnum Føroyum.
