FIFIA Club World Cup UAE 2018 calls for over 1,000 volunteers
The FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018 recently kicked oﬀ its Volunteer Programme, which gives UAE residents the chance to play a key role in delivering one of the world’s top club tournaments.
The Local Organising Committee (LOC) for the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2018 is seeking over 1,000 volunteers to take on a variety of roles in the build-up to, and during, the tournament which takes place from 12 to 22 December in Al Ain and Abu Dhabi. The only qualification restriction: applicants must be over the age of 16. Volunteers who register for the program will be assigned a role in one of six areas: accreditation, competition, marketing, media, protocol and venue management.
They will be provided a unique opportunity to nurture their talents and learn new skills as well as be at the heart of this world-class event. The tournament will see six continental club champions and the UAE host team Al Ain FC come together to battle for the crown of best club side on the planet.
“The Volunteer Programme for the FIFA Club World Cup UAE 2017 was a great success and we hope to raise the bar for this year’s tournament. We are proud to oﬀer this opportunity to the young people of the UAE - a chance for them to meet new people and play a leading role in a world-class event while continuing their personal development. It is rewarding to see people so willing to help,” said Mohammad Al Shatiri, head of the Volunteer Programme.
