Lots of volunteers will be needed to allow the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Prague and Ostrava to run smoothly.

Becoming a volunteer for the World Championship means experiencing the event in a whole new way – helping out with the organizing allows volunteers to peek behind the scenes among the teams, journalists and spectators. Every team of volunteers usually has a unique atmosphere, which boosts the experience of the whole event.

The help of volunteers will be needed in many areas – exact positions and locations will be determined according to the skills and experience of each individual. That way, everybody has a chance to work in an area that he or she understands the best. There will be a need for volunteers in the areas of hospitality, security, working with the media department and accreditation centre, and also drivers.

The process of choosing volunteers for both cities (Prague and Ostrava) has already started but there are still some vacant positions. At the moment, volunteers are choosing their desired locations. This will be followed by interviews and, finally, they will be assigned to their positions. The organizers will try to fulfill the wishes of volunteers as much as possible, but it is probable that not all of them can be accommodated.

Training for the volunteer positions will begin during the winter so that everything is prepared on time. The volunteers are the face of the tournament and they will be in daily contact with fans. Therefore, the final assessment of the whole tournament will depend on them and the work they do. The goal is to create a friendly and responsible group of volunteers.

Everybody who is interested in helping with the organization as a volunteer can send his or her CV to: for Prague and for Ostrava. Every e-mail will be replied to.
