Birmingham 2022 has appointed Rosterfy as the official provider of the workforce management systems for the Commonwealth Games.

Rosterfy, a volunteer and workforce software company, will provide the management systems to support the 13,000 volunteers required to deliver the Games. 

The software is responsible for managing the recruitment and interviewing of and assigning tasks to the volunteer workforce. 

Rosterfy has previously worked with the UEFA Euro 2000, the Super Bowl, and Dubai Expo 2020.

Shannan Gove, co-founder of Rosterfy, said: "The team at Rosterfy are thrilled to have been selected as the official workforce management systems provider for the Games. 

"We are excited to work alongside the entire workforce team to ensure a world-class experience for their volunteers and workforce.

"At Rosterfy, we’re passionate about connecting communities to events and causes they’re passionate about. 

"COVID-19 has kept the world in lockdowns and away from experiences that they love for more than a year now and we can’t wait to see the people of Birmingham supporting their city on the world’s stage."

Birmingham 2022 will see around 4,500 athletes from 72 nations and territories compete in 19 sports. 

There will be 14 competition venues, with the Games held from July 28 to August 8 2022. 

It is expected to attract more than one million spectators to the city and have a global TV audience of 1.5 billion.

Adrian Corcoran, chief information officer at Birmingham 2022, said: "Our volunteers will be at the heart of these Games and will shape the experience of those competing and attending. 

"I have no doubt that Rosterfy will help us engage with them and allow them to connect with each other so we can deliver a memorable Commonwealth Games for all."

Rosterfy says its volunteer workforce software is a long-term solution that can be rolled out for years to come.

Gove added: "Time and time again, we continue to see large scale events create a robust volunteer programme only to let it dissolve once the event formally concludes, which isn’t sustainable. 

"We’re excited to be working with Birmingham 2022 to ensure an ongoing legacy of volunteering, where volunteers can be engaged throughout the city for years to come."
