Volunteer enrollment for the 2023 FISU University Games begins

Organizers launch the Games volunteer program exactly two years before the start of the competitions.

Starting from August 8, 2021, anyone willing, considering they answer a number of criteria, can apply on the official Games volunteer website at this web address: To participate in the program, the potential volunteer must be 18 years old by the time the Games start. Certain functional areas will be available to the residence of Ekaterinburg as young as 14 years.

After their application has been accepted, the candidate will go through online tests and an interview. During the interview, the candidate can demonstrate their skills, knowledge, level of proficiency in foreign languages and tell about their volunteering experience. Candidates that have successfully passed the interview will be allocated to functional areas and begin distance learning.

Enrollment of Games recruiters will start simultaneously with the start of the volunteer program. Recruiters’ main task will be conducting interviews with the potential volunteer candidates. Detailed information about the selection process can also be found on the Ekaterinburg 2023 FISU World University Games volunteers’ official website.

Applications will be accepted until January 2023. The Games Directorates plans to recruit approximately 11 thousand volunteers that will be allocated in 34 functional areas. Estimated that no less than 6 thousand candidates will be recruited from among the residents of the Sverdlovsk Region, approximately 4 thousand volunteers will arrive from other regions of Russia, and another 200 from abroad.
