This year Volleyball Nations League is bigger  - with twice as many teams and matches over six days instead of three. With the extended event, we need more volunteers than ever before to ensure its success. This is a great opportunity to participate in an exciting international event. A variety of volunteer positions are available. See here for a short description of required volunteers. 

We are looking for Team Host's for the tournament. Please find the job description here: Team Host

Registration for volunteers is now open.
