VOLUNTEERS at next year’s Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast will stand out from the crowd dressed in ultra-bright uniforms that were unveiled for the first time at a ceremony in the host-city today.
The snazzy fluro outfits were officially revealed at the GC2018 Workforce Orientation event on Saturday.
The vibrant blue and yellow design will be sure to make the 15,000 volunteers identifiable to everyone at the Games.

The uniforms include a spot to hold sunglasses, sun safety features, pants that zip into shorts and a wide brim hat.
More than 4000 volunteers filed into the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday for the first of three “full-house” training sessions.
It’s understood the volunteers will start receiving their smart new uniforms from January.
GOLDOC Volunteer Event Manager and former NRL star Mat Rogers was on site to help model the new uniform, alongside fellow Games volunteer, Gold Coast resident Donelle Coulter.
