Recruitment for ´The Pack´, the official volunteering programme, began on 17th March through an online application process.
‘The Pack’ will be made up of 6,000 volunteers who will be the faces of the tournament, helping to deliver RWC 2015 across England and in Cardiff.
In line with the vision for RWC 2015, ‘The Pack’ will have rugby at heart – recruiting 75 per cent of the volunteers from rugby clubs in England and Wales.
In addition, ‘The Pack’ will bring 1,500 potential new volunteers into rugby through a national campaign, with the aim of retaining them beyond 2015 as part the tournament’s legacy.
Volunteers will play a key role in the delivery of the six-week tournament with a range of roles, including transport, meet and greet, accreditation and way-finding, and will all vary in duration.
