Canberra Volunteers needed for a world class event

AFC Asian Cup Australia 2015 and ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 are urging Canberrans to be a part of two of the biggest events the ACT has ever hosted.

The call for volunteers comes during National Volunteers Week (12-18 May), which celebrates the enormous contribution volunteers make with community sport and recreation relying on around 1.7 million volunteers who contribute 165 million hours to running sport and recreation events throughout Australia*.

“Volunteers play an essential role in ensuring the success of many events and festivals across Canberra and it’s fitting that we are highlighting their importance during National Volunteers Week,” ACT Minister for Tourism and Events Andrew Barr said.

“The ICC Cricket World Cup and AFC Asian Cup are large-scale international tournaments and they present an exciting opportunity for sports fans in Canberra.

“I strongly encourage the Canberra community to become actively involved in these fantastic events.”

Up to 4,000 volunteers will be required for the ICC Cricket World Cup in the 14 host cities, with 49 matches played over 44 days in Australia and New Zealand, with Manuka Oval hosting three of those matches.
