Matchday accreditation

Access to our press facilities (press box, gantry and pitch side) is restricted to people with official accreditation. All applications must be made via the online i-pbs system at at least 48 hours before the fixture.

All reporters and photographers need to be registered by Data Co, who govern accreditation in the FA Premier League and EFL. Any requests for ISDN lines, AAA passes or car parking should be submitted as part of this process. 

Press conferences
We hold press conferences with key staff before and after every first-team match, as well as when we have significant news to announce. Details of these are circulated to the media via our email mailing list - if you would like to be added to this list please email Please note that this is only open to the media.

The press entrance on matchdays is via the West Stand reception, where accredited press will be provided with a match programme and matchday pass which should be kept on display at all times. Hot drinks are available at any time in our press room, which is accesible via the stairs of lift from reception. Teamsheets will be distributed to the press box and press room one hour before kick-off, with our post-match interviews taking place in the press room. Access to the opposing manager and any players is at the absolute discretion of the visiting media team.
