Fan activations         To create a festive tournament feeling and represent your city branding and local host city supporters.

Fan March                To create a carnival atmosphere and to help with wayfinding to the stadium.

Farewell                   To ensure visitors leave with a positive experience of your host city.

All four games will take place at Leigh Sports Village and volunteers will need to be available to support all four match days :
