England host the Rugby League World Cup later this year and are in need of a record number of 2,000 people to come forward to volunteer when the tournament kicks off.
The volunteers are currently being named “The Power Squad” and are hoping to showcase talents from a wide variety of roles when the 16th edition of the tournament kicks off.
At twenty-one venues across eighteen host towns, including St Helens, The Power Squad will play a key role in the delivery of the six-week tournament with a range of roles, including transport, spectator services, accreditation, way-finding, media, content and broadcast support.
The Chief Executive, John Dutton told the Rugby League World Cup site: “The UK has a fantastic volunteer network which we hope to tap into. A successful tournament cannot be run without our Power Squad and we hope to welcome many new people to the ever-growing Rugby League family to experience the passion, pride and community spirit of the sport”.
The online application process is already begun and the last submission is on 23 April at 8:21 PM.
