FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019™

7 June - 7 July

FIFA Women's World Cup

Volunteer registration for France 2019 closes on 30 November


Six months on from the launch of the Volunteer Programme in the nine host cities of the FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019™, the application period is drawing to a close. Those still interested have until Friday 30 November to register.

From 7 June to 7 July 2019, some 2,500 volunteers will be stationed throughout France to help ensure that the FIFA Women's World Cup France 2019™ runs smoothly, while enjoying their own first-hand experience of this international event.

The tournament’s nine host venues (Paris, Grenoble, Le Havre, Montpellier, Nice, Reims, Rennes, Valenciennes and Lyon) will each welcome between 250 and 350 volunteers. From directing spectators to managing the accreditation centre, or even escorting players to anti-doping tests, volunteers will play an essential role at the event. Not only will they actively contribute to the smooth running and success of the tournament, but theirs will be the first smiles seen by spectators arriving at the stadiums.

Since the platform for registration was opened in May 2018, over 10,000 applications have been submitted across the nine host venues. The organisers welcome the diversity of the applications, which have come from people of all ages, with 44 per cent made by women.

"We can sense that more and more people are taking an interest in women’s football. We’ve obviously received applications from football fans and from women who play the game, but it’s not only them. For many applicants, this is the sporting event of the year. And that’s what we’re looking for too. We want volunteers who are motivated and passionate about the idea of making this World Cup a real success,” said Romain Delieutraz, the Head of the Volunteer Programme.

“There are still a few days to go before applications close. If you’re tempted by this opportunity, then get applying! Playing a part in a World Cup in your own country is an unforgettable experience and one that doesn’t come around too often.”

To be a part of this unique adventure and the very first Women’s World Cup to be held in France, head to the volunteer portal before Friday 30 November 2018.
