Welcome to the Volunteer Portal for the WBSC U-18 World Cup! We are so excited to have you as a volunteer. 

We look forward to working together, and making this event bigger and better than in 2010! 

Please note: there is a $25 registration fee that will be collected at Volunteer Training. Registration fee covers the cost of volunteer uniforms and swag, and gives volunteers access to all 50 games in the tournament ($199 value).

All communication will be done via this portal, so make sure to check your emails and check the homepage for important information! 

Please note that we will not be scheduling volunteers until closer to the event.
