Lord's Outfielders

Lord's Outfielders are a new component of the match day experience at Lord’s. During all Major Matches, volunteers are "happy to help" all guests with any of their queries. Just look out for a bright red shirt. In 2014, 92 people have volunteered at Lord’s.

Outfielders are able to donate their time and importantly their skills in helping others during busy match days.

There are three main areas of volunteering:

Venue team: Responding to guest queries such as giving directions and match information as well as crowd control

Media team: Assisting with various running duties for MCC’s Media Team, such as writing articles for the website, the daily news roundup, photographing and speaking to fans for social media purposes

Activation team: Helping with the activities occurring during the matches such as assisting the community performers and lending a hand at the MCC Cricket academy

Volunteering provides many benefits not just for the community, but also the volunteer. This includes:

  • Learning new skills
  • Enhancing existing skills
  • Improving employability
  • Meeting new people
  • Building confidence
  • Getting involved in an area of interest

Match Day Volunteer, Veronica Sokin, said: "Volunteering at the wonderful, historic Lord’s Cricket Ground is an amazing experience. The opportunity to work with such a fantastic and fun team at the home of cricket is not to be missed not to be missed."

Whatever your role, you will be required to be approachable, committed, flexible and team focused.

All volunteers will receive an induction, as well as general and specific training to support their continued professional development.

Applications for 2014 are closed.

Please check this website for volunteer opportunities in early 2015.
