World Cup Volunteer application deadline in one week

The deadline for applying to become a volunteer for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 England & Wales closes in one week!

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will give you the chance to be a part of one of the biggest sporting events in the world.

The World Cup Cricketeers will be made up of 4,000 volunteers who will be the faces of the tournament, showcasing the values of cricket as well as welcoming the world to England and Wales when the ICC Cricket World Cup returns for the first time in 20 years.

With over one million people expecting to attend matches and World Cup activations in England and Wales next summer – and a further 1.5 billion watching around the world – the ICC World Cup 2019 team are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to deliver an exceptional ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 for both fans and players.

Across eleven host venues and cities, the volunteers will play a key role in the delivery of the six-week tournament with a range of roles, including transport, spectator services, accreditation, way-finding and fan-zones.

The programme features a dedicated interview process followed by comprehensive training for successful candidates.

World Cup Cricketeers will experience the unique atmosphere of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, gaining important skills, meeting new people and contributing to a world-class tournament.

Steve Elworthy, Managing Director of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, said: “The World Cup Cricketeers programme will show the diversity of cricket as a global game. We want to engage with all ages, genders and communities and build on our impressive numbers of recent tournaments.

“The UK has a fantastic volunteer network which we hope to tap into. A successful tournament cannot be run without our ‘World Cup Cricketeers’ and we hope to welcome many new members to the ever-growing Cricket family.”

Candidates must be available for a minimum of three shifts across the tournament and available to attend training sessions in the run-up.

Applications to be part of the World Cup Cricketeers team can be completed here.
