  • Sports

    In this area, you will be at the heart and centre of the sport competitions! Around 10,000 athletes from all over the world will be competing in 18 different sports and you will make sure that the competitions can run smoothly and athletes can bring their best performance to the field of play. You will assist athletes, officials and competition managers in various tasks to ensure that everything on the field of play is set up and ready for the competition and we provide the best possible conditions for athletes to compete. Our sports are divided across the five host cities in the Rhine-Ruhr region. Availability requirements may vary between the different sports. For example, in Athletics, volunteers will be required to support for a minimum of 7-8 days. Meet the world's best athletes, make new friends and many unforgettable, life-changing experiences in this role.
