About Volunteering

Hosting an event such as the 2021 NCAA® Final Four requires a deep lineup of dedicated, friendly volunteers. NCAA Final Four volunteers are the first and often most important touchpoint for visitors. While volunteers are not needed inside the game venue, they ensure off-court events run smoothly and help Indianapolis make a great impression on hundreds of thousands of visitors.

The NCAA and the Indianapolis Host Committee estimate a need for approximately 2,000 volunteers to successfully host the 2021 NCAA Final Four and events. Volunteers must be able to commit to three (3), four-hour shifts between April 2-6, 2021.

Volunteer registration will begin in late 2020. If you are interested in receiving the most up-to-date information on volunteer opportunities, register here.
