People in Qatar are encouraged to volunteer for the FIFA Arab Cup 2021™, which will take place later this year.
The tournament organisers – FIFA, the Qatar Football Association, the Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy (SC) and the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 LLC – are looking for enthusiastic people who are at least 18 years old to support a range of operations for the big event, including spectator services, hospitality, broadcasting and media, among others.
Volunteers will receive full training, tournament accreditation and a branded uniform. During their shifts, they will be entitled to a meal and use of public transport.
Volunteers must be fluent in English, with fluency in Arabic considered an advantage. They must be available for a minimum of eight shifts, lasting approximately eight hours each, spread across weekdays and weekends during the tournament, which will culminate on 18 December.
SC Human Resources Executive Director Rasha Al Qarni, said they are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated people to support the staging of the historic event.
Volunteers are a key part of any tournament – they help create an exciting atmosphere through their engagement with thousands of fans.
In addition, volunteers also gain valuable experience and develop new skills – all while meeting like-minded people and helping Qatar deliver a global event that will significantly help the country finalise its preparations for the World Cup next year.
Al Qarni added that this is a great opportunity to be part of an international tournament, increasing your chances of being chosen as a volunteer for next year’s FIFA World Cup.
Twenty-three teams from across the Arab world will take part in the FIFA Arab Cup™, with the tournament seen as a vital opportunity for Qatar to test operations and facilities ahead of the World Cup. Matches will be held at six Qatar 2022 stadiums.
