CAMP CARDIFF Champions League fan camp 2017

Camp Cardiff offers an unique opportunity to gain some practical and relevant work experience in Event Management and Customer Services, as we gear up to receive over 5000 visitors.

Guests from all over the world will be descending upon Cardiff for the biggest football club match on Earth. Due to the nature of this event, primarily we are looking for Work Experience candidates. Camp Cardiff will be open for only 5 days, so this is a event where most of our time will be spent setting up and taking down this temporary accommodation facility. It’ll be short (14 days), sweet and hugely beneficial to individuals seeking work experience in the event industry.

Don’t underestimate the size and importance of these matches. 300 million people tune in for the UEFA Champions League, an audience 3 times larger than the United States’ Super Bowl! With both the Women’s Final and Men’s Final across the five days that Camp Cardiff will be open, we are very excited to be able to receive and accommodate guests for these international events.
