Be part of something special – become a Volunteer!

Be part of a rugby tournament of superlatives! You want to bring enthusiasm and idealism as a volunteer and earn the sympathy and gratitude of visitors, athletes and organizers alike? Then apply now!

The tournament in the Olympic Rugby 7s is not only a mega-event, but it is also a big international sports festival with national teams and guests from all continents. The reward of every volunteer is the experience of being up close. The look behind the scenes inside the stadium, with the team or in the catacombs is only available to those who actively participate in this tournament as volunteers. No spectator enjoys this privilege. You can only experience the feeling of having made Germany’s biggest rugby event and an international world-class tournament in Munich possible as a volunteer.

If you want to apply as a volunteer, you must be at least 18 years old during the tournament and be available on both matchdays (21 + 22.09.2019). All volunteers will receive working clothing and food during their working hours. Outside of duty, all volunteers can follow the games in their own volunteer block in the stadium.

Volunteers are needed in different areas, from the spectator services to the press area to the changing rooms. When applying, you can specify the areas in which you would like to help.
