CAIRO, April 10, 2017 - Media accreditation is now open for the FIBA U19 Basketball World Cup 2017 in Cairo, Egypt.
The competition will be played at Cairo Stadium Indoor Hall Complex from July 1 to 9.
Media representatives who wish to attend the event are kindly requested to apply using the FIBA Media Portal.
The deadline for submitting applications is June 5.
The application information submitted will be subject to a review process. Media representatives will be notified of the outcome of their application no later than 17 June.
Successful applicants will be notified by FIBA; completing the application form does not automatically guarantee accreditation.
A proper and valid, electronic version of a portrait photo (headshot) of the applicant must be uploaded during the procedure. Applications that do not include a proper and valid photo may not be considered.
In order to be considered for media credentials, an applicant must represent a bona fide media organization that produces and publishes original content.
Applications for media credentials by club representatives, agents, educational booklet authors, fan bloggers, or media that do not produce original content based on generally accepted news gathering criteria will not be considered.
Freelancers (writers, photographers and videographers) may be asked to prove that they are on assignment with a media outlet in order to be considered for credentials.
Credentials will be awarded on the basis of the professional history of the applying media, relevance to the event and basketball in general, as well as space availability in the different venues.
