The Rhine-Ruhr 2025 FISU World University Games are recruiting!

Summer Games 5 March 2024

The ‘NO GAMES WITHOUT U!’ campaign has been launched, with the aim of encouraging 12,0000 volunteers to participate. Registration is now open.

Under the motto ‘NO GAMES WITHOUT U!’, a promotional campaign is drawing attention to the registration opportunity for Rhine-Ruhr 2025, which will take place in the cities of Bochum, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, Essen and Mülheim and der Ruhr from 16 till 27 July 2025.

12,000 volunteers are needed for the sports festival, at which around 10,000 athletes and officials from up to 170 nations are expected. What are the requirements? Very simple! Anyone who is at least 18 years old on 1 June 2025, speaks fluent German or English and is available on at least four event days in summer 2025 can apply.

Those interested in the volunteer program have many opportunities at the Rhine-Ruhr 2025 FISU World University Games. There are around 50 different areas of work in total. These are as diverse as the sports festival itself: in the ‘Sports’ functional area, volunteers gain exciting insights into one of the many sports; in ‘Communication’, they work with media representatives from all over the world; and in ‘Culture & Side Events’, volunteers help to deliver the cultural and non-sporting entertainment program.

Mirjam Scheffler, Senior Manager Volunteers at the Rhine-Ruhr 2025 FISU World University Games, says volunteers will shape the image of the respective host cities during the event and act as contact persons at the sports venues: “As members of the volunteer team, we have already gained a lot of experience as volunteers at various events. We know what is important in the organization and what challenges need to be overcome. With our expertise, we want to enable the volunteers to have a memorable experience and get a glimpse into the world’s biggest multi-sport event in 2025.”

The volunteers will be a fundamental factor in making the Rhine-Ruhr 2025 FISU World University Games a colorful, upbeat and international festival. In return, they will each receive a behind-the-scenes view of a huge multi-sport event, free access to competition, a ticket for local public transport, a volunteer outfit, and unforgettable experiences and adventures with people from all over the world.
 Registration is possible until 15 September 2024 at
