The club will usually hold a pre-match press conference on Friday afternoons with manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink - these take place virtually over Zoom. Invites will be sent out to the Media Distribution List (see below) - if you would like to attend a press conference, please email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org from a company email address.
All matchday accreditation requests should be processed through DataCo and submitted no later than 48 hours before kick-off. The request process will close at this time.
Should you miss the deadline, please email email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org with your request and DataCo accreditation details. Please note that for busy games, priority will go to those who applied through DataCo.
The Pirelli Stadium will open two-and-a-half hours before kick-off for weekend and midweek games - there will be no access to the media facilities before this time. On arrival at the Pirelli Stadium, please head to the main reception and then go to the media sign-in desk ahead of you and have your DataCo accreditation ready.
Please note that, in line with our Bag Check Policy, all bags and boxes will be searched and tagged on sign-in.
Tea, coffee and refreshments will be available to the media from the Media Room, next door to the Tom Bradbury Lounge.
Journalists will be assigned a specific seat number - our representative on the sign-in desk will be able to direct you and our club media staff will be on hand to assist further.
Photographers and videographers (who must be requested in advance of the 48-hour deadline) must wear a high-visibility bib and remain in the two designated photographer zones behind each goal.
No filming is permitted in the press area, as per DataCo regulations. Anyone seen filming from the press bench will be asked to leave.
