A new era in sport will get underway in the summer of 2018 as Glasgow and Berlin host the inaugural European Championships — an exciting new event bringing together some of the continent’s leading sports  including the existing European Championships for Athletics, Aquatics, Cycling, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon with a new Golf Team Championships.

The Championships will take Scotland’s sporting reputation to the next level, with a potential audience of up to 1.03 billion people set to watch the action.

Glasgow and surrounding areas will host Aquatics, Cycling, Golf, Gymnastics, Rowing and Triathlon while Berlin will host the Athletics element of the Championships.

North Lanarkshire is honoured to be hosting the Rowing and Triathlon elements of the Championships at Strathclyde Park between 2 and 12 August 2018, with VANL leading on the volunteer recruitment element for the Strathclyde Park-specific volunteering. 

A large number of volunteers will be required over 8 days (Thursday to Sunday each week) to provide general stewarding duties and to help make the events taking place in North Lanarkshire a memorable occasion for everyone.

At this stage, VANL is taking general expressions of volunteering interest, with volunteer induction sessions being held in the next couple of months to provide more information on the specific roles and volunteer requirements.

Volunteers can choose to be involved in as many or as few days as they wish and all out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed. If you would like to be part of this exciting sporting event and have some time to spare, please let us know by emailing us on: or by telephone Tel: 01698 358866 / 01236 748011.
