As we reported earlier, the process of recruiting volunteers in connection with Baku’s hosting the UEFA Europa League Final has been launched and will run from December 13 through January 31. So far, about 2000 youth wishing to serve as a volunteer for the Europa League Final have enrolled.
The Operating Group set up in connection with the final game presented the Volunteer Program to students, student youth organizations and other institutions at a total of 11 universities between December 13 and 25. The last presentation planned for this year was organized at Azerbaijan State Oil and Industry University. More than 2,000 students, who attended these ceremonies, were shown a presentation about the events planned to be held in connection with the Europa League and were informed about the importance and prospects of this Program.
To give their support to the Program, veteran Azerbaijani footballer and ambassador of UEFA Europa League Final in Baku Vali Gasimov, as well as national team and “Qarabag” footballer Mahir Madatov attended the presentations.
The volunteer program is open not only to students, but to anyone who wants to be part of this major sporting event of the continent. Training sessions on organizational issues, educational and entertainment courses, special master classes and other activities are planned to be organized as part of the program.
Those, who want to join this Program and improve their personal qualities and skills, find new friends globally and become a part of the football world, are invited to fill out the registration form here: www.finalbaku2019.az/volunteers. Each registered applicant will be invited to an interview in February 2019.
Volunteers who have successfully passed the selection stage will avail themselves of a number of training sessions, gain theoretical knowledge and get the chance to apply this knowledge in practice during the event, thereby acquiring valuable experience for a successful future.
The deadline for applications to join AFFA’s volunteer team and be part of the excitement provided by the Final is January 31, 2019.
