FIBAWC LOC opens volunteers program

Volunteers are a key factor in the success of all major sporting events.

The Volunteers Program of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Local Organizing Committee is tasked to recruit, train, and deploy volunteers who will complement the workforce to make this August 25 to September 10, 2023 event successful.

“The monumental task of co-hosting the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 including its final phase is upon us, and the challenge to deliver has never been as daunting. But we Filipinos have always been known to come together and unite for causes most worthy, and the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, I sincerely believe, will move us to showcase that quality to the rest of the world,” says Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas Chairman Emeritus and FIBA Central Board Member Manny V. Pangilinan.

“I, therefore, invite every Filipino, from all walks of life, to be part of this global sporting event starting with the launch of its own Volunteers Program,” he added.

The Volunteers Program is looking for 500 highly motivated volunteers who embody the spirit of “Bayanihan” and who can show the world the Filipino brand of hospitality.

Interested applicants must be at least 18 or turning 18 by August 1, 2023 and fluent in English and Filipino (knowledge of a third foreign language is a plus). They must also be fit to render work; confident and comfortable dealing with stressful situations and situations of conflict; and, finally, fully vaccinated with proof of vaccination.

Moreover, the volunteer must be a Filipino citizen.

In observance of FIBA’s aim to create a diverse and inclusive basketball community, it will also be a major initiative of the Volunteers Program to provide equal opportunities for all members of society.
