25.08. – 02.09.2017 Sporthalle Hamburg


Dear Sports Fans,

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is very pleased to have been granted the right by the International Boxing Association to host the 2017 AIBA World Boxing Championships.

We, the German Boxing Association, as hosts, are looking forward to welcoming more than 280 boxers from over 80 nations in Hamburg within the framework the championship bouts and crowning a total of ten new world champions in the individual weight classes. Among the athletes are approximately half of the medal winners from the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. This guarantees maximum world-class athletic performance!

And in the same way as the Olympic Games, such a large-scale event can only be staged at top level with the help of voluntary helpers. We are therefore looking for volunteers who are interested in experiencing and shaping the organisation and management of this sporting highlight at close quarters.

We are very grateful that the Hamburger Sports Federation has expressed its willingness to support us in the recruitment of volunteers. (see also https://www.hamburger-sportbund.de/node/2995)

Interesting and varied tasks await you and naturally there will also be more than enough fun. It goes without saying that all volunteers will receive meals / catering free of charge. And to ensure a uniform identity, we will provide adidas clothing free of charge, which you may keep after the World Championships. Furthermore, we will also be glad to issue an official confirmation of participation on request.

The president of the German Boxing Association, Jürgen Kyas, asks for your help in a personal letter. You can download the letter here or also from the Hamburg Sports Federation.
