Call for volunteers

ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships

21-25 August, 2019 – Szeged

From over 100 countries around the world, more than 1,200 participants will arrive at the end of this summer to the ICF Canoe Sprint World Championships organized in Hungary, Szeged. The race is extremely special because the allocation of Olympic quotas is largely determined by this event. So the stakes are huge because the road to Tokyo leads through Szeged for every future canoe sport champion.

To experience the sport events from inside, to meet the most well-known figures of the sport, to experience the diversity of cultures and to meet them, and thus to identify yourself with the atmosphere of a world competition is a truly unique experience.
Do you like working in a team? Are you interested in canoe sport? Or do you even do this sport? Would you like to learn more about the process of organizing a sports event? Then be a volunteer part of the organizers team!
