Apply to volunteer in EMG2023

Volunteer application for European Masters Games 2023 is now open!

In 2023 we will get to enjoy a grand sports jamboree in Tampere, when the fifth European Masters Games event arrives in Finland for the first time. The EMG2023 program includes almost 30 summer sports in which masters athletes will be competing for the championships between 26.6.-9.7.2023. The event is a true sports festival celebrating friendship and passion for sports, and inspiring growth in a wellness promoting sports community.

With this form you can apply to volunteer in the EMG central organisations’ general tasks. If you are interested in volunteering in specific disciplines, choose the task of ‘sports team’ and we will connect you with the club organising the sport in question. The clubs may also have their own volunteer applications.

You are eligible to volunteer, if you are 16+ years of age and highly motivated to participate in organising an international sports event. We expect proper, friendly behaviour and a can-do attitude from our volunteers. Some tasks may require special skills such as excellent English, technical skills or a driver’s licence.

We will be offering our volunteers a volunteer t-shirt, job experience, new friends, meals, free access to public transportation in the Tampere region, volunteer certificate and an international, sports-loving environment.

Personal information gathered in this form will be used only by the EMG2023 organiser and will not be forwarded to third parties. Changes in registration
