Volunteers of the World Cup 2018
Volunteers of the 2018 World Cup in Russia are resilient and energetic people, professionals with knowledge of foreign languages who observe healthy lifestyles. If you fall under this description, then you have a direct path to volunteering at the upcoming Mundiale.
Show or not show your voluntarism?
Let's start with the main thing - we will reveal the essence of the issue. A volunteer is a person who aims to provide assistance on a grant basis. HITCH-AIR-MEZD-BUT! Actually, the word itself came to Russian from Latin. "Voluntarius" - "voluntary."
Voluntarism! And as it was said in one famous film: “I don’t express myself in my house!” But that was then, and now you can express how much your heart desires. Moreover, gratuitous help in our time is worth it.
The 2018 Mundial volunteers will be able to get a number of bonuses in return for their proposed assistance during the FIFA 2018 ™ World Cup and the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. For more information, visit the FIFA Football Organization website.Actually, you, if you are determined to become a volunteer, will have to visit him in order to fill out an application there.
Volunteering in Russia on the occasion of Mundial in numbers and requirements
To begin with, let's say that volunteering at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, which will be held in Russia, has been officially opened as a kind of support for Mundial since June 2016. Quite a few people have already taken advantage of the chance given to them. Below we describe in detail what they have gone through. This will need to be done and you, please note. Unless, of course, you still want to become a volunteer.
All people working for the World Cup in 2018 submitted only one application. Duplicate registration forms are automatically deleted by the system. If there is too much “spam”, then your chances naturally decrease, if they remain at all after such a “stream”.
And immediately, without fail, we will point out that: 20,500 volunteers will be able to help the organizer of two tournaments in the near future. 5,500 people will be required in order to maintain an organized system of organizing the 2017 Confederations Cup. 15,000 people will act as assistants to the organizers of the 2018 World Cup.
Following this information, we also say that the minimum age of a volunteer should be 18 full years. Perhaps this is the only requirement, except for cheerfulness and sense of purpose. And yes, 18 years should be fulfilled not earlier than May 10, 2017 and 2018 to participate in the organization of the Confederations Cup and the World Cup, respectively.
How to start helping to organize a football tournament
So, the first thing a person needs to go to the site FIFA.com. There he should complete a questionnaire with important information about himself. In addition to accessing the Internet, you must have your passport and your own photo electronically. Consider what you have already done, if you have passed the registration stage.
After that, you will find online testing and interviews. Be decisive, moderately persistent, passionate about what is happening and show the interviewer that your goal will overshadow all the obstacles that may arise on your path in the future. Next, wait for the selection results.
Bonuses approved by the organizers of FIFA-2018 volunteers
If you are among the lucky ones, then the next stage will await training.Its duration varies, depending on the chosen functional direction in the context of providing free aid in the period of the tournament. Without exception, the 2018 World Cup volunteers after they have completed the training and passed the necessary tests, received accreditation and equipment at their disposal.
In general, if we really highlight all the advantages of the volunteering of the Russian Mundial, then here they are:
- unique equipment (which you can probably take with you at the end of the tournament);
- free meals (you can easily treat yourself to a meal during shifts);
- souvenirs (some of which can be given to relatives and friends, which, it seems, should be remembered for a long time);
- Free travel by public transport (this seems to be a definite plus without a doubt);
- the opportunity to directly participate in various trainings that enhance professionalism (there is even nothing to add here, to be honest).
The certificate of the participant of the volunteer program will also be received by the person assisting in organizing a football tournament. We deliberately miss them, but these are the unspoken benefits of volunteers: an invaluable experience forlater life and new acquaintances.
The main functional areas for all participants of the volunteer program
For volunteers, the organizers prepared 20 main functional areas. It will be necessary to indicate the preference of one or another of them in the questionnaire, so be careful in considering this particular issue at the application stage.
Here are directions in which you can take part to a volunteer:
- services for viewers;
- operational marketing;
- catering (catering);
- arrivals and departures;
- TV and radio broadcasting;
- volunteer management;
- ticket program;
- medical care and doping control;
- Information Technology;
- sustainable development;
- ensuring the work of the media;
- facility management;
- linguistic services;
- The program "Hospitality";
- work with teams.
To ensure the proper formation of volunteer teams, if, of course, they can be called such a phrase, 11 volunteer centers operate on the territory of the Russian Federationoffices are opened in the largest cities of the country: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Kaliningrad, Saransk, Samara, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don and Sochi.
What to pay special attention and where to find detailed information about the program?
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that World Cup volunteers who registered in March 2015 and approved by the organizers to participate in the support of the 2018 World Cup Preliminary Draw do not automatically enter the World Cup volunteers base. Therefore, these people will need to re-register online. Perhaps the fact of participation in the program will help a person to get the desired position many times faster.
We would also like to note that applications of persons with disabilities, representatives of sexual minorities, religious leaders and other people are treated in the same way as applications of any other candidates. Therefore, if you are still in doubt, then drop the case.
At the same time, privileges among applications filled with a large number of candidates are received by those who are filled in by a person who is fluent in foreign languages, has a higher education, and in the past already had experience in volunteering.
In this material we have collected for you all the useful information.You can find all the details regarding certain issues regarding participation in the volunteer program on the official website of the FIFA football organization, as well as on the FIFA 2018 World Cup Tours in Russia ™ welcome portal 2018.
