Below are some of the various volunteer opportunities, as well as, information on how to register:

Player Bag Distribution

Help distribute player bags to players in the Adidas Superstore during Target USA CUP. Volunteers will be working in a climate controlled environment. 


Volunteers play fundamental roles in the facilitation of activities and are the reason that a vast selection of opportunities can be offered to tournament participants. Possible duties include, but are not limited to, assisting with athlete and VIP/Coach parties, staffing off-site activities to Bunker Beach, Twins game, and Brunswick Zone. Chaperones for dances and off-site activities must be 21 years of age or older.

Award Ceremonies

Present winning teams with trophies/medals after completion of championship games on Sunday of Target USA CUP Weekend and Saturday of Target USA CUP.

Airport Greeters

As Minnesota's largest tourism event we want to welcome our guests properly. Volunteers meet the teams and referees at the airport and assist them with tournament information and connect them to the Target USA CUP transportation. Lots of walking so great opportunity to get exercise!

Field Managers

Field managers are the lifeblood of the tournament! As a field manager, you're stationed at a field manager tent in the middle of the action and you get to watch the games. You help games get started on time, answer questions from curious parents and players, make tournament headquarters aware of any problems on the field, summon medical personnel if needed, and assist the referees stationed at your tent. If you like meeting new people and watching soccer, this is the place for you.

Guide Program

Work as an interpreter while acting as a host and liaison for international teams during the week. Languages needed for the tournament include French, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

Opening Ceremony

Organization of the team entrance, access control, ushers, set-up/tear-down for the Opening Ceremony.
