Become a volunteer at the Paris 2020 European Athletics Championships

Paris 2020 European Athletics Championships

More than 1400 volunteers are required to contribute to the success and the running of the Paris 2020 European Athletics Championships by filling a broad spectrum of roles both before and during the championships from 25-30 August.

Prospective applicants can apply to volunteer by following this link and filling out the form. The form is in French and please note that intermediate French is a mandatory requirement.

There will be a distinct pan-continental theme as the volunteer programme for the Paris 2020 European Athletics Championships is actively supported by Erasmus+ in the context of their European Volunteer and Active Citizen Programme which combines sports with civic commitment.

“We wanted to create, lead and promote a community of volunteers before, during and after the European Athletics Championships in order to offer a real European heritage to this event,” said Jean Gracia, the President of the Local Organising Committee. 

“We want to make this sporting event a festive and unifying event. Being part of Paris 2020 as a volunteer is an opportunity to collectively build a major sporting competition but also to meet people from different backgrounds who share common values. 

“It is this feeling of belonging to a community that contributes to the European influence that we wish to extend in the long term,” added Gracia.

The deadline to register online to become a volunteer is 15 March.
