People from Qatar and across the world have been invited to register their interest in volunteering to support preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, the first World Cup in the Arab world.
Volunteers will contribute towards numerous Qatar 2022 milestones, including stadium launches and test events. They will support in a range of functions, including event management, hospitality, marketing, communications, audience management, security, medical services and more.
Applicants, who must be aged 16 and over, are not required to have any volunteering experience and will receive bespoke skills training in the lead-up to the tournament, which will kick off on 21 November 2022. Working as a volunteer now will give participants an advantage when applying for FIFA’s Qatar 2022 volunteer programme, which will cover various aspects of the tournament, including matchday operations.
When announcing the call-out for participants, the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC)’s Secretary General, H.E. Hassan Al Thawadi, said volunteers would play a pivotal role in helping Qatar deliver a unique tournament.
“We have always maintained that this tournament is one for the whole region. Now, we are excited to open registration for volunteers interested in joining us on our journey,” said Al Thawadi. “This tournament will provide a platform to showcase the true nature of the Arab world and volunteers will be essential partners in ensuring that all our preparations for 2022 help achieve this.”
Nasser Al Khater, the SC’s Assistant Secretary General for Tournament Affairs, said: “We’re working flat out to prepare for the greatest sporting spectacle on earth and now we’re opening up the opportunity for people from around the world to contribute to our preparations.
“We have an incredibly busy schedule between now and kick-off, and this presents numerous opportunities to gain new skills, meet new people and discover everything Qatar’s World Cup has to offer. We look forward to welcoming and working with all our volunteers, no matter their age, ability or where they are from.”
Join hundreds of thousands of people from around the globe – and help us make history as we prepare for the Middle East’s first FIFA World Cup™.
