‘The Pack’ - Rugby World Cup 2015 volunteer programme launched

13 February 2014

The search for 'The Pack' the 6,000-strong group of volunteers that will be the face of Rugby World Cup 2015 - is now underway.

Wembley Stadium will the host New Zealand v Argentina match on 20 September and Ireland v Europe 2 match on 27 September 2015 at next year's Rugby World Cup, and volunteers will play a key role in the successful delivery of the tournament, both regionally and nationally.

75 per cent of the 6,000 volunteers will be recruited from rugby clubs in England and Wales, and the remaining 1,500 places will be recruited through a national campaign aimed at bringing more people into rugby. They will have the opportunity to fulfil roles including transport, meet-and-greet, accreditation and way-finding across the 13 venues in England and the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

Anyone who is interested in volunteering, should register their interest at www.rugbyworldcup.com/volunteers before the application window opens on March 17. Key information on how to join will then be communicated via the Front Row newsletter.
