From 7 June to 7 July 2019, the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™ will enthral inhabitants of the host nation, who will likely follow the exploits of the 24 competing teams closely. In addition, 2,500 volunteers will take part, bringing their commitment, passion and welcoming smiles to the prestigious event. As the first point of contact with fans in Grenoble, Le Havre, Lyon, Montpellier, Nice, Paris, Reims, Rennes and Valenciennes, the volunteers will play an essential role in the smooth running of the event.
Volunteering not only provides you with the opportunity to play an important part, but it also enables you to meet people from all walks of life who wish to experience a piece of history together.
To become a volunteer, you must meet just three criteria:
- Be motivated about playing a part in organising the event
- Be over 18 years of age
- Be available on match days and training days, at a minimum
Join us and participate in this great festival of football. It’s your moment to shine as well – become a volunteer!
