Media information

All match day 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 stephen.martin@burtonalbionfc.co.uk with your request and DataCo accreditation details. For busy games, priority will go to those who applied through DataCo.

Only members of club media will be allowed access to the tunnel area and this must be requested for each individual in advance of the fixture. 

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 and coffee, and a selection of sandwiches, will be available to the media.

Journalists will be assigned a specific seat number - our representative on the sign-in desk will direct you.

Photographers must wear a high-visibility bib. 

No filming is permitted in the press area, as per DataCo regulations. Anyone seen filming from the press bench will be asked to leave.

Parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please request this with your DataCo application.

The club will hold a press conference on Wednesday mornings at the Pirelli Stadium ahead of that weekend’s fixture, although this is subject to change. Invitations will be sent out to the club’s distribution list.

The club will make the manager and one player available to speak to the press following the game. These will take place pitchside, next to the home dugout. 

Please note that if you require post-match interviews, you will need to request pitchside access through DataCo or via email with plenty of notice.

All interview requests should be sent to nigel.powlson@burtonalbionfc.co.uk or media@burtonalbionfc.co.uk - under no circumstances should club personnel be approached without permission from the club.

To request addition to our distribution list and to receive press releases, please email nigel.powlson@burtonalbionfc.co.uk or media@burtonalbionfc.co.uk from a company email address.
