Almost 8,000 volunteers will support the Organising Committee in their activities, so that the most important European sports event of 2023 will be an extraordinary and unforgettable. Volunteers will help in many areas, both during and in preparation for this great event.
Volunteers will inform fans, welcome guests on welcome desks in hotels and airports, help fans with disabilities, operate in sports zones and support organisers in areas such as: distributing accreditation, media support, logistics, giving directions, supporting athletes, referees and national teams.
Poland will showcase the friendship of energetic people willing to collaborate on the Games, living the experience from the inside. This Major Event will need people from a wide variety of backgrounds to cover every aspect of the competition; from supporting the National Olympic Committees with their daily activities, to being involved in spreading the message of the European Games as part of the Media team.
