March 27, 2017

The drive to recruit thousands of volunteers for a major sporting event in Glasgow is underway.

At this inaugural event, Glasgow will host the European Championships of six major sports – aquatics, cycling, gymnastics, rowing, triathlon and golf – from 2-12 August 2018, while Berlin hosts the European athletics from 7-12 August.

Applications for volunteering in Glasgow began on Monday, 27 March and will remain open until 31 July, 2017.

The volunteer programme was officially launched at Kelvin Hall on 27 March, with guests from the Scottish government and Glasgow City Council – who are jointly funding the event – alongside members of the volunteering community.
