Doha, 26 July 25 2022 - Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy and FIFA announced that registrations to become a FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 volunteer will close on Sunday 31 July, with interviews set to be completed by 13 August which marks 100 days to go to the tournament.
In a statement the Committee said that 20,000 volunteers will participate in supporting the operational aspect for the first FIFA World Cup in the Middle East and Arab world, which will be held in eight state-of-the-art stadiums from 21 November to 18 December.

In March this year at Katara Amphitheatre, FIFA announced the opening of applications for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Volunteer Program.
The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Volunteer Program has interviewed thousands of candidates from more than 170 countries since mid-May, when the Volunteer Centre was opened in Doha.
The interviews were being conducted by volunteers who had actively supported FIFA tournaments organized by Qatar, such as the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2020 and the FIFA Arab Cup Qatar 2021.
People interested in volunteering should follow the following steps: register at volunteer.fifa.com and fill in the application form, play "Take on the Trials" (an online gamified assessment), and book to have interview.
Volunteers must be aged 18 or over by 1 October 2022, speak English and be available to commit to a minimum of 10 shifts during the tournament. Candidates should note that some volunteer roles will start as early as 1 October.
The FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Volunteer Program is the largest in the countrys history and aims to unite people through football to deliver an outstanding tournament celebrating passion for the game and showcasing Qatar's achievements and highlight its ancient culture and heritage.
