Southampton Cup - Volunteers Needed (5th-12th August)
The inaugural Southampton Cup starts this year in August as a showcase tournament for local, national and international teams. It will become a key event on the international youth football calendar and we need volunteers to become our ‘Tournament Makers’.
Whether it is taking scores from a match, guiding participants, directing car park traffic or helping out with great customer service, Southampton Cup volunteers will play a vital role in making the event a success.
Once you are a part of the tournament, we hope you will meet new people, learn new skills and of course be excited by the event and how it is a showcase for all the teams to enjoy and play competitive football against teams from around the world.
What will I be doing?
There will be various roles available and you may be asked to:
- Meet and greet participants and spectators
- Help set up and clear down the event
- Support participants as they take part by answering any questions and providing directions
- Help with administration of the days matches
- Marshall pitches
- Help keep the car park organised
- Stewarding sensitive areas
- Provide excellent customer service to all participants and attendees.
What skills, experience and attributes do I need?
Along with having great communication and interpersonal skills, we ask that you are:
- Flexible and willing to work outdoors
- Enthusiastic about providing participants and spectators with a great tournament experience.
- Willing to work as part of a team.
If you have specific skills and experience that you think may be useful - such as event management, using walkie-talkies, or leading teams, please let us know when you apply.

Great way to develop coaching experience and spread your enjoyment of running to friendly beginners. As well as the aforementioned experience provided, working as a GASA volunteer is a great addition to the CV and provides a route towards a Level One qualification if you intend to go into coaching.
