The Malta FA has launched the campaign ‘Be part of the team’ to reach out to potential volunteers to support the organisation of the UEFA Under 19 Championship – Malta 2023, that will be held on our islands between July 3-16, 2023.
Volunteers represent the ‘face’ of a major event such as these Finals. They represent the country and the organisation of the tournament by assisting in stadia, training venues, hotels, transport hubs and the airport throughout the tournament.
The call is open for a number of roles which will be allocated on the basis of each person’s skills: drivers, ceremony participants, stewards and matchday personnel, media officers, hosts/hostesses, administrative staff, youth programme assistants, and doping chaperones are just a few of the positions that are available.
Dr Angelo Chetcuti, General Secretary of the Malta FA and Chair of the Local Organising Committee said that “Sport, including football, thrives on the contribution of volunteers. Without their commitment and dedication, there would be little left. Such events are no different – volunteers are truly part of the team as much as our boys on the pitch”.
Tournament Director Ivan Vella encouraged anyone interested in sport to take the opportunity to get up close to the action and behind the scenes of the biggest football event ever hosted in Malta. “There is a role for everyone, irrespective of age or skill set. What matters most is the commitment to contribute”, said Vella.
Seven of the top European Under 19 national teams will join Malta to compete in the tournament in Malta.
The campaign was launched on the margins of a Sports Symposium organised by MCAST, considered an ideal backdrop to reach sports enthusiasts.
