How to Volunteer

The Irish FA provide a wide range of bespoke opportunities for volunteers to engage in both football related and community based activities.

The Irish FA Volunteer Events Team

The IFA Volunteer Team was established in 2014 to provide mutually beneficial volunteer opportunities across the Irish FA. As an Irish FA Volunteer Team member you can join a central database of volunteers and be provided with regular volunteering opportunities as and when they are developed.

We offer the opportunity to be an accessibility volunteer. This role is specific to assisting disabled people during international fixtures to enhance their spectating experience. This assistance may include way-finding support, or mobility and communication assistance.

You will be invited to an official Irish FA volunteer induction where we will try to match you with available volunteer opportunities depending upon your experience, location and interests.

This role is primarily for assisting International games and other events delivered by the Irish FA.
