Welcome to the volunteers section of Rugby World Cup 2015.The window to apply to join ‘The Pack’ – the 6,000 volunteers who will welcome the world to rugby and to England next year –has now closed. Selection events will now take place across the country between June and December, 2014.
Rugby will be at the heart of ‘The Pack’, with 75% of volunteers recruited from rugby clubs in England and Wales, recognising those who support the game week-in week-out.
The remaining 1,500 places will give members of the public, both in the game and new to the game, the chance to be part of one of the biggest sporting events in the world.
If you would like to find out more about ways to get involved with RWC 2015, make sure you join ‘The Front Row’ to stay up to date with all the latest news in the build-up to next year’s showpiece tournament.
