UEFA EURO 2020, initially scheduled to take place from 12 June to 12 July 2020, will now run from 11 June to 11 July 2021. See full details.

I was selected as a volunteer for UEFA EURO 2020. What happens now?

All volunteers initially confirmed in January 2020 will be offered the chance to remain part of the team in 2021. Volunteers will be contacted directly by their respective local organising structure (LOS) to re-confirm their availability for summer 2021 and their willingness to participate.

In the meantime, we would like to ask for your full understanding and support. We are counting on you, your enthusiasm and positive impact on the tournament while also asking that you take all measures recommended by the public authorities to ensure your safety and well-being.

Together, let’s work towards an unforgettable tournament and a great summer in 2021!

I did not have the chance to apply last year; will the volunteer application platform re open at some point?

The initial application phase started in the 12 UEFA EURO 2020 venues on Wednesday 12 June 2019 and selected volunteers were confirmed in January 2020.

Depending on the outcomes of the retention estimation currently being conducted by each local organising structure (LOS), the application platform may re-open for venues looking for additional volunteers. Opening and closing dates of the platform will be venue specific and will depend on the venues' retention numbers.

Moreover, applicants who turn 18 before 1 May 2021 will also have a chance to be part of the team.

The following applications re-opening schedule is currently foreseen:

Rome 1 August 2020
Amsterdam, Copenhagen 15 August 2020
Bilbao, Budapest, Dublin 1 September 2020
Baku, Munich 15 September 2020
Bucharest, St Petersburg dates to be confirmed
Glasgow, London to be confirmed in Autumn if applications will re-open

Thousands of volunteers involved throughout Europe

Volunteers will play a key role in the organisation of UEFA EURO 2020.

For this special edition of the tournament – spread over 12 host cities – UEFA aims to implement a high-quality and memorable volunteer programme across all venues.

As usual, volunteers will support the delivery of the event's wide-ranging projects, including accreditation, ceremonies, transport, media, ticketing, match operations and spectator services.

UEFA wants everyone to have an unforgettable experience that encourages others to volunteer for European football events in future.

With the tournament to be held for the first time in 12 different countries, UEFA EURO 2020 will feature the most diverse volunteer programme ever, as well as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the thousands of people involved.

The volunteer programme will be implemented by 12 local organising structures (LOS), responsible for the recruitment, training and management of volunteers during the events.
