Volunteer with the City of Vancouver

The National Volunteer Program for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™ and the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 was launched today at Parliament Hill in Ottawa as part of the Official Host City workshop taking place in Ottawa.
 
Hundreds of volunteers will be required to host the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014 competition taking place between  August 5 and  24, 2014. The FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™ will need hundreds more to help ensure Canada delivers the most successful FIFA Women’s World Cup™ ever from  June 5 to July 6, 2015.
 
“The FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in Vancouver will capture the incredible energy and spirit of our residents coming out of the 2010 Winter Games,” Mayor Gregor Robertson said. “We have an exceptional legacy of skilled and enthusiastic volunteers in the City.  I invite them and those new to volunteering to be part of what will be an exciting celebration of soccer in 2015.”
 
“As part of the team helping to deliver this world-class competition, volunteers will play an important role in establishing a meaningful legacy for sport and women’s soccer in Vancouver,” said Victor Montagliani, Chairman of the National Organising Committee for the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™.  “It would be impossible to stage this event without the effort and passion of British Columbians committed to volunteering.”
