Zurich – Switzerland, August 8, 2012: FIFA and the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan would like to remind media representatives wishing to cover the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Azerbaijan 2012 that the media accreditation process via the FIFA Media Channel will close this Friday at 23:59 CET.
Media accreditation via the FIFA Media Channel is only for written press, photographers, new media and non-rights holders. There is a separate accreditation process for FIFA Media Rights Licensees (MRL) that is serviced by FIFA Broadcaster Servicing. For queries regarding media accreditation for MRL, please contact FIFABroadcasterServicing@fifa.org.
It is important to note that approval to access the FIFA Media Channel does not mean you have been granted accreditation. Media accreditation for any FIFA competition requires the completion of an accreditation form that can be accessed from the media channel. Furthermore, please be advised that international applicants are responsible for their own visas.
The Local Organising Committee (LOC) has designated several hotels in Baku and Lankaran for media working at this year’s competition. Media requiring accommodation should visit the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup section of the media channel for more information.
Should you have any questions regarding media accreditation, please contact us at media-accreditation@FIFA.org.
