Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

The Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees lay claim to one of the most heated rivalries in professional sport and for one weekend only, these two giants of baseball are coming to London.

On June 29-30, history will be made as two regular season MLB games will be hosted in Europe for the very first time.

London Stadium, one of the capital's most iconic sporting venues, will be dramatically transformed into a 60,000-seater ballpark and play home to the Red Sox as they go head to head with their most formidable foes, the Yankees.

MLB and Our Parklife have come together to recruit, train and manage a team of dedicated volunteers who will be at the heart of the event. 

We are looking for over 1,000 volunteers to support this incredible event. Across the weekend, you will provide an exceptional customer service to the thousands of spectators coming to enjoy a unique American Baseball experience.
