Since the opening of the official volunteer recruitment site (June 24, 2015), already more than 4500 aquatics enthusiasts signed up to support the 2017 FINA World Championships, starting in less than 230 days.

Now, Budapest’s University of Physical Education and the Organising Committee have officially signed the contract guaranteeing the high standard recruitment and education of the World Championships’ volunteers.

’Appointed by the Hungarian Government and supported by Co-Chairman Gyárfás and the Organising Committee, the University of Physical Education received the honorable and very important duty of gathering and organising volunteers for next year’s World Championships. This is such a great challenge because the FINA World Championships will be a true milestone in the history Hungarian sport, and perhaps in the history of the Olympic movement as well…’- declared Dr Lajos Mocsai, dean of the University of Physical Education. 

The dean added that the volunteers will work in 22-23 different functional areas, most people signed up so far want to support the competition operations. Still, volunteers will fulfil crucial roles on several other fields, such as transportation, hospitality, arrivals and departures, or the media, as well. The recruitment process is multi-faceted: besides volunteers with experience from other sport events, high school and university students are being recruited too, with the help of the Hungarian Deans’ Conference – in fact, all ages are welcome.

’From the pool of 4500-5000 enthusiasts, approximately 2500-3000 selected volunteers will make the FINA World Championships successful and unforgettable next summer in Hungary. We have already completed a great deal of work with the leadership of Dr Szilvia Perényi. We have the right method, process and education worked out, it will be a great volunteers’ programme – added Dr Mocsai.

Who will be the volunteers? Who will be the faces of Hungary for the Championships?

‘Volunteering at the FINA World Championships is a very exciting, but hard and responsible job. Those who sign up for this journey will bring out the best in themselves from dusk till dawn, since their work, their faces represent the Event and the country to our visitors and the outside world. Everyone will face challenges, but these will be solved with creativity and positive approach. Our volunteers will embody our nation and identity’ summarized Dean Lajos Mocsai, who trusts the legendary Hungarian devotion to sports.

The current signing of the partnership contract between the University and the Organising Committee is a milestone of this social activity and devotion.


‘The success of any World Championships usually depend on two factors: the transportation of athletes, delegations and guests, and the work of the volunteers. Any mistakes in these mean failure, this partnership means a guarantee of success to us’ – said Tamás Gyárfás, Co-chairman of the Budapest 2017 Organising Committee.

What happens next? It is time for those who already signed up to prove their abilities in the selection process.

Registration is still open however, with the training process starting in the early spring of 2017.
