ICC Champions Trophy Cricketeers Volunteer Programme

What better way to enhance you CV or employment opportunities through volunteering at a Global sporting event.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy 2013 is coming to England and Wales this June, an elite event for the top eight one day international cricket sides in the world. The 50-overs-a-side competition will take place over 18 days with matches taking place across three venues – The Oval (London), Edgbaston (Birmingham) and The Cardiff Wales Stadium. This will be a great sporting occasion and we are looking for up to 900 volunteers (Cricketeers) to support the tournament across the three venues in delivering a tournament to remember.

Volunteers are at the heart of successful events and the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 will be no different. The Cricketeers (volunteers) will be the face of the tournament meeting and greeting the spectators as they arrive into the cities / stadia’s. Other areas that you can be involved in are Ground Staff, Media Operations, Drivers, Ticketing, Event Activation, Hospitality to Accreditation. Not all roles will be high profile, or close to the cricket however all are vitally important in supporting the Champions Trophy 2013.

Becoming a Cricketeer will give you the opportunity to learn new skills and gain experience at a world class tournament to help enhance your CV and employability. You will be required to be committed, flexible; team focused and have a huge welcoming smile. During your volunteering role we can assure you that you will have an enjoyable time.
