ICC Champions Trophy and Women's Cricket World Cup 2017 - Bristol Volunteers NeededPosted on: 11 Jan 2017
The ICC Champions Trophy and Women's Cricket World Cup are coming to Britain this year and Bristol will be a host city. Gloucestershire CCC are looking for volunteers to help stage the games at The Brightside Ground and make the events as great as possible.
The spectacular festivals of cricket will be back on British shores this summer and Bristol's Brightside Ground and Gloucestershire CCC have ben selected as a host. The venue is looking to recruit a number of 'Cricketeers' to become part of the whole experience and ensure the games are as great as they can be. Already well versed in hosting international cricket, The Brightside Ground has undergone massive transformations in recent years and is now a real jewel in Bristol's already glowing sporting crown.
For the first time in cricket history England and Wales will host two major ICC global events and the Cricketeers will be at the centre of that action. The Cricketeer programme will unite communities over two months of exciting tournament cricket.
Steve Elworthy, Director of both tournaments, said: "Volunteers will play a vital role in ensuring that the ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Women's World Cup are a huge success. Cricket has a strong tradition of volunteering in England and Wales, so we have seen the contribution they make from grassroots up to international tournaments.
"We have already had a great response to our call for Cricketeers, including both people that have volunteered previously and first timers, but we still need others to get involved. Don’t miss your chance to play a key role in helping us deliver two months of exciting cricket in June and July this year.”
From spectator services to accreditation, the successful candidates will gain a unique experience working across key areas of two global sporting events. To become a Cricketeer apply before Monday 16th January here: www.icc-cricket.com/cricketeers.
