Zurich – Switzerland, August 20, 2012: The media accreditation process for the FIFA Futsal World Cup Thailand 2012 is now open. The competition will be held in Bangkok and Korat from 1-18 November 2012. The deadline for media applications is Thursday, 20 September 2012.
Media accreditation via the FIFA Media Channel is only for written press, photographers and Non-Rights Holders (NRHs, media entities that have not acquired the rights for the broadcast coverage of the event).
There is a separate accreditation process for FIFA Media Rights Licensees (MRLs) that is serviced by the FIFA Broadcaster Servicing Team. A specific MRL link for the online accreditation registration will be made available to the MRLs by the FIFA Broadcaster Servicing Team. For further queries please contact [email protected]
The competition will feature 24 countries, including the hosts Thailand, and reigning champions Brazil. A full list of the qualified teams can be found here: http://www.fifa.com/futsalworldcup/qualifiers/index.html.
Access to the FIFA Media Channel and an accreditation application do not guarantee an accreditation for a FIFA competition. If we are unable to accommodate you on this occasion, you will be informed by e-mail.
Media visiting Thailand are advised that they may require a visa to enter the country and are responsible for making their own arrangements.
