Volunteer package

Being a volunteer in Paris for the 2020 European Athletics Championships is a unique opportunity: the event has only been organised once in France… in 1938! It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience a major international event from the inside, close to the action, and to meet people with different backgrounds who wish to share an adventure together.

And an opportunity, why not, to extend this experience on other events until Paris 2024?

When will I receive my accreditation and uniform? Volunteers will receive their uniform and accreditation in August 2020. At the end of his mission, they will be able to keep the equipment provided.

Will volunteers be provided with food and accommodation during the event? A catering service will provide meals and drinks for all volunteers during their missions. On the other hand, they must make their own arrangements when it comes to their accommodation, except for very specific missions.

As a volunteer, will I have the chance to watch the competition? The volunteer is an active participant of the event, not a spectator. He/She will be able to watch the competition on the TV screens, while enjoying a break at the Volunteer Centre or on another venue (when possible, depending on the venue).
