  • FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Host Nation Philippines Launches Volunteers Program

    Encouraging Filipinos To Showcase “Bayanihan Spirit” To The World

    Volunteers are a key factor in the success of all major sporting events. The Volunteers Program of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Local Organizing Committee is tasked to recruit, train and deploy volunteers who will complement the workforce to make this August 25 to September 10, 2023 event successful.

    “The monumental task of co-hosting the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 including its final phase is upon us, and the challenge to deliver has never been as daunting. But we Filipinos have always been known to come together and unite for causes most worthy, and the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023, I sincerely believe, will move us to showcase that quality to the rest of the world”, says Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas Chairman Emeritus and FIBA Central Board Member Manny V. Pangilinan.

    “I therefore invite every Filipino, from all walks of life, to be part of this global sporting event starting with the launch of its own Volunteers Program”, he added.

    The Volunteers Program is looking for 500 highly motivated volunteers who embody the spirit of “Bayanihan” and who can show the world the Filipino brand of hospitality.

    Interested applicants must be:
    • At least 18 or turning 18 by August 1, 2023
    • Fluent in English and Filipino (knowledge of a third foreign language is a plus)
    • Fit to render work
    • Confident and comfortable dealing with stressful situations and situations of conflict
    • Fully vaccinated with proof of vaccination
    • Philippine residents

    In observance of FIBA’s aim to create a diverse and inclusive basketball community, it will also be a major initiative of the Volunteers Program to provide equal opportunities for all members of society.

    “We at the SBP are in full support of the FIBA Basketball World Cup 2023 Volunteers Program. We will extend all possible resources both here in Manila and around the country, to ensure that anyone who wants to contribute to this worthy cause is able to do so”, says Panlilio.

    Also among the first to commit personnel to the Volunteers Program is the MVP Group, according to SBP Vice President and PBA Chairman Ricky Vargas. “The MVP group, at large, will be in full support of this program and future ones leading to the World Cup,” Vargas vowed. 

    There are several areas where interested applicants can choose from – Sports, Venues, Games Services, International Relations and Protocol, Safety and Security, FIBA World Congress and more. Successful applicants will be entitled to official FIBA World Cup uniforms, meals, accreditation IDs, allowance to cover local transportation, and a certificate of participation.
