Volunteering at EuroGames and Bern Pride 2023

We are a non-profit organisation with the aim of staging the EuroGames and Bern Pride in the Swiss capital from 26 to 29 July 2023. We depend on the help of around 500 volunteers for the smooth realisation, because without their support this international sporting event cannot take place!

We expect around 3,500 athletes to compete in over 25 sports over four days. The Pride will also take place on Saturday afternoon with over 10,000 participants.

Are you interested in supporting us in the preparation and realisation of this great event and in creating a safe environment for the many guests of the two events? Then sign up as a volunteer!

In return, we promise you a unique international experience, exciting encounters and lots of fun together! You will have the opportunity to experience the event first-hand and actively participate in organising it. It will be an experience you will never forget!

All Volunteers receive

  • A T-shirt of the EuroGames / Bern Pride 2023
  • A badge with name, function and number
  • A goodie bag
  • Free transport during work
  • Meals during work
  • Invitation to the volunteers’ party in August 2023

Roles and Chancen
Throughout the event, there will be various activities for volunteers. These can be, for example:

  • Volunteer for a sport, e.g. ensuring a well run tournament, briefing the athletes, collecting the results and handing out the medals.
  • Work in the EuroGames Village e.g. bar work, musician support, ensuring security
  • Supporting our social media team with photographing the athletes
  • Sprinter to ensure connections and if help is needed somewhere
  • Helping with the logistics of these two major events

Most work shifts are scheduled during the event (26-29 July 2023) and will take place in Bern. There are also opportunities to get involved as a long-term volunteer or in the organisation of the event in the months leading up to the event.

Announce your interest now

Are you part of the team and do you want to put your energy into this international event?

It is important to us that everyone can decide for themselves where they want to work. That’s why we’ll be working with Tautoku from spring 2023. This is an online tool in which the respective work shifts are listed in detail. You can apply directly for the advertised shifts in spring.

At the moment we cannot say exactly in which areas we need how many volunteers. That’s why you can only pre-register today. As soon as the shifts per field have been fixed, we will inform all registered volunteers first. Then you will have the opportunity to register directly for the individual shifts. So sign up and do your pre-registration today!

We are very happy if you become part of our team and are convinced that you will have an unforgettable time at the EuroGames and Bern Pride 2023 together with the other volunteers, the athletes and the marchers!
