I am a sports fan “throughout my life”. I remember, like through a fog, when I watched the Seoul Olympics at night with my Dad, and then the final of the football World Cup played in Italy.
Then the interest in other sports appeared, the first live matches, trips to tournaments, and finally volunteering.
As a fan, I participated, among others, in the Olympic Games 2012 in London, several European volleyball finals, ski jumping in Poland and in Planica, the opening match and the wonderful final match of the 2014 World Volleyball World Championship in Poland. Also in the European handball finals in Stockholm and Krakow, the English league football match in London or the Italian volleyball league in Trento. Quite a few 🙂
As a volunteer in several other (or the same, only in a different phase of the tournament, it is worth remembering that you can also do this): for example, as a volunteer coordinator during the group stage of the Volleyball World Championship, a volunteer in the Press Office during European Championship 2017, Team Guide during Handball Qualification Tournament for the Olympic Games, qualifying games, European Championship 2016 or the Nordic World Ski Championships in Finland. This experience helped me to understand the organization of sports events from the inside and makes it easier to organize all trips.
So I really know how to look for new events, how to organize such trips and what it is about sports volunteering. And I will gladly give you these tips 🙂 So that you never miss a good match on TV, and even more- the possibility of participating live. Such memories will stay with you for life!!
