Calling for Volunteers

On Friday 24 September 1993 when Juan Antonio Samaranch said “THE WINNER IS SYDNEY” the excitement was uncontainable.

When Gridiron Australia won the bid to host the 2019 IFAF World Championship it is was just like winning the Olympics – and we have, we have won the hosting rights for the American Football Olympic Games!

At the Closing Ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic games the IOC President said, “I am proud and happy, to proclaim that you have presented to the world the best Olympic Games ever.”

This is our goal – to deliver the best IFAF World Championship ever and we are calling on our gridiron community and friends to help us make this dream a reality!

We have been inundated with congratulations and offers of help and now this unique and special opportunity awaits you! We have many positions available and are looking for outstanding volunteers! Some roles require work place experience and other positions only require good old Aussie hospitality!
