Here you will find a step-by-step guide for your registration as a volunteer of the Fistball MWC.



I have never been a volunteer before. Can I still apply?

Yes, don’t worry, there is a suitable task for everyone. We are looking for your support, no matter if you are new or a professional volunteer. In the lead-up to the tournament, you will receive comprehensive training and information to help you perform your tasks well and make the event an awesome experience.

How old do I have to be to apply?

We are happy about everyone who wants to support us in making the Fistball World Championships a tremendous success. The minimum age to be a volunteer is 16 years. We also require a declaration of consent from the parents of volunteers who are not of age.

Will there be walk-in kids at the games?

Yes, we are happy about every child who wants to enter the arena with the players. For organizational reasons, we ask that parents contact us directly by email at volunteer.office@faustball.de. Please provide the name, date of birth and availability of your children here.

Will volunteer accommodations be provided?

All volunteers are responsible for organizing and paying for any accommodation they may need before or during the matches. However, we will be happy to help you get in touch with other volunteers early on so that you can organize overnight accommodations together.

Do I have to live in Germany to register?

No! Applications are open to people from all over the world. Everyone who is interested in volunteering can apply. However, you need a valid entry permit and visa for Germany to participate as a volunteer.

My application

Until when can I apply as a volunteer?

You can register for your volunteer assignment at the Fistball World Championship until June 30, 2023.

Can I support in the preparation of the World Championship?

With pleasure! Please select this option when registering and write us briefly in the comments field where you could support us, and we will contact you directly. Of course, you can also send us an e-mail.

Is it possible to participate as a volunteer group?

Yes! Please define a group captain and register with the identical group name so that we can assign you. You can do this at the end of your registration in the comments field. We will then contact the group captain to organize a joint assignment.

My assignments

How many shifts do I have to cover?

Whether it’s just one shift or the whole World Cup, we’re happy about every shift you take on. We would especially like to invite hard-working helpers during the week to the SAP Arena for the final games. Please choose at least five shifts so that we can reserve a ticket for you!

How long does a shift last?

One shift usually lasts four hours. We plan to have four shifts per day: 9am-1pm, 1pm-5pm, 5pm-9pm, and 9pm-12am. In some areas (e.g., Sports/Competition or Catering) there may be slight variations in these times.

When will I receive my scheduled shifts?

At the moment we are collecting the requirements of the departments and will start with the assignments one by one. As soon as you are assigned, you will receive an email with your shifts. Please be patient, but feel free to write us if you are unsure if something did not work out with your registration.

How do I get to my shift?

All volunteers will receive a day pass for public transportation on their assignment days.

Do I need a ticket for the Fistball MWC?

No, you do not need a ticket on the day of your assignments. Just report to the volunteer accreditation at the entrance.

Why are fewer volunteers needed at the SAP Arena?

Since the SAP Arena organizes the catering itself, there are no shifts to be filled in this area. Areas such as press or competition management will continue to be handled by us, and we will also organize the evening events.

Can I pick my shifts?

It is possible to choose which day you can take a shift at which time. You can indicate your preferred working hours in the application form. We will consider your preference accordingly when assigning roles and shifts.

Are there any specific requirements?

For some assignments you need language skills, specific qualifications, or availability during the whole World Cup. These are always stated in the registration form. If you are unsure whether an assignment suits you, please contact us.

What do I get for my work?

Each volunteer will receive the Fistball World Cup 2023 outfit, food vouchers during their assignments and also free admission on the day of your shift.


I have further questions. Who can I contact?
