Be Part of Fever Pitch

Fever Pitch

We have a brilliant volunteering opportunity this summer.

To celebrate the World Cup in Brazil, ITV will be opening a special fan park – called Fever Pitch – on the Old Granada Studios site. The idea is to give local people an opportunity to share the highs and lows of the world’s biggest football event.

As well as showing key games throughout the tournament on big screens, the Fever Pitch fan park will also host a Brazilian-style beach football stadium accommodating over 2,000 people.

ITV are working with Beach Soccer Worldwide to put on International Beach Football matches, as a warm up to the real action in Brazil. We’re thrilled that local community groups and clubs will also get the chance to access the sand and try the sport out throughout the day.

And that’s where ITV need our help….

There are currently two volunteer roles on offer: Community Hosts and General Volunteers.
