With Aviva Stadium hosting four games in EURO 2020, it was a fitting location for ambassadors Aine O'Gorman, Liam Lawrence and Chris McElligott to officially launch the recruitment drive for volunteers.

Supported by the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport, Dublin City Council and the Football Association of Ireland, the Volunteer Programme will create roles based in and around the stadium, city and airport. Roles will include Accreditation, Broadcasting, Communications, Event Transport, Fan Zone, Information and Spectator Services.

The first staging of a pan-European format of the tournament will see 12 cities host games and Paul Martyn, who is the Volunteer Manager for Dublin, believes that there is a role for people from all backgrounds and varied skillsets.

"We have a rich history of volunteering in Ireland, especially within football, and getting involved with EURO 2020 is something that will undoubtedly excite a lot of people," said Martyn.

"There is a lot of great work being done behind the scenes with Dublin City Council, the Department of Transport, Tourism & Sport, and various other stakeholders, and now we want to open up the opportunity for others to experience what is going to be a fantastic tournament."

1: Be part of the largest global sporting event ever to be held in the Republic of Ireland
