This study was about comparative study on exposure methos of sports insurance between Iran and selected countries. The research method was applied with respect to objective and qualitative with respect to practical way. Data analysis done via structural analysis and Atlas.ti V.6 software was used for data analyzing. Results showed that there is no plan for social security of professional sportsman, athletes, coaches and referees and therefore there is no plan for providing social insurance for this people. The results of comparative study showed that insurance companies in Iran are mature in providing commercial insurance, but they don’t have serious entry in  sports insurance. The results showed that there are good tools among insurance companies in Iran for marketing of sports insurance, But due to lack of clear legal procedures and lack of integrity in sports insurance they are not able to spend all their might. There is no special commercial insurance in insurance of Iran. For improvement of insurance in sport proposed that insurance companies should set special units for sports insurance, Medical Committee of Sportmedical Federation should become specialty sports insurance company and Ministry of Sport and Social Security Organization should have a memorandum of understanding for Establishment of a comprehensive system of social insurance fund.
