LB Hounslow is offering longtime fans and curious newcomers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be the face of potentially the biggest-ever Women’s EUROs next year, by becoming one of 2,000 lucky UEFA volunteers across the country who will welcome visitors to their city.

The tournament will be taking place from 6-31 July 2022, and Brentford Stadium will be hosting four games in total. This includes three group stage matches on and one of the quarter finals, meaning plenty of roles are up for grabs locally.

There is also the opportunity to be a Host City Volunteer, acting as ambassadors for the Borough and creating a welcoming atmosphere across fan-zones and transport hubs and celebrating local neighbourhoods for visiting fans.

Anyone over the age of 18 can apply to be a volunteer and no experience is required. Applicants of all backgrounds are welcome.

You can ​apply for a role here. where you can also find news on tickets, the tournament, competitions and more. Applications close on 1 November and interviews will be carried out between November 2021 and March 2022.

‘An amazing opportunity for Hounslow residents’

Cllr Samia Chaudhary, Cabinet Member for Leisure Services, said:

“This is an amazing opportunity for Hounslow residents to be an integral part of an international football tournament which happens to be taking place a stone’s throw away from home. Volunteers will be pivotal in creating a spectacular match-day atmosphere, potentially a once-in-a-lifetime experience which will leave a positive legacy in Hounslow for everyone and inspire us all to get active. Whether you’re a hardcore football fanatic or you just want to be a part of the action, I encourage residents to apply and represent their borough on the world stage.”

Susan Couper, Senior Recruitment and Volunteer Manager at The FA, said:

“Being a volunteer at the UEFA Women’s EURO England 2022 tournament is an amazing opportunity to be a part of what’s set to be the biggest Women’s European sport event in history. Volunteering gives you the chance to see the event from a completely different perspective whilst enhancing the major event experience for all guests. It’s also the perfect opportunity to build friendship networks and maybe even provide a glimpse into a future career. Since London 2012 we’ve seen huge numbers for volunteers at sports events and this will be no different, helping us to deliver a record-breaking event that inspires positive change in the women’s game, right on our doorstep.”
