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 media@burtonalbionfc.co.uk and nigel.powlson@burtonalbionfc.co.uk with your request and DataCo accreditation details. Please note that 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, coffee and refreshments will be available to the media.

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.

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

The club will usually hold a pre-match 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 weekly to the club’s distribution list.

Burton Albion Football Club will make the home manager and one player - at the club's discretion - available to speak to the press following the game. These interviews will take place in the new mixed zone in the away concourse past the dugouts and tunnel area, once all supporters have exited. We can direct you on the day.

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.

Interviews with representatives from the away team must be arranged through the away media team, who will also decide where to hold post-match conferences.

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 express 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.
