Zurich, October 17, 2018 - FIFA is pleased to announce that the accreditation process for media representatives wishing to cover the Draw for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019 has been launched.
The draw will be conducted at the Seine Musicale in Boulogne-Billancourt (Paris) on Saturday, 8 December 2018 at 18:00 and the deadline for accreditation applications is 16 November 2018.
Media accreditation for written press and photographers will be managed through the FIFA Media Channel (http://media.fifa.com/). In addition, in order to facilitate the coverage of media events during the days preceding the draw, applications from non-rights holders (NRHs, media entities that have not acquired the rights for the broadcast coverage of the event) should also be submitted via the FIFA Media Channel.
On the day of the draw, NRHs will have access to the media centre and mixed zone but will not be able to bring any recording/audiovisual equipment into the draw hall.
A separate accreditation process for FIFA Media Rights Licensees (MRLs) will be managed by the Broadcaster Services team at FIFA TV, who will provide MRLs with a specific link for online accreditation registration on the FIFA TV Extranet.
An additional accreditation window will be opened for media from the countries that qualify through the tournaments and play-off matches to be played between now and 1 December.
Please note that approval to access the FIFA Media Channel does not mean that you have been granted accreditation. Media accreditation for any FIFA event requires the completion of an accreditation form that can be accessed on the FIFA Media Channel.
All applications are subject to confirmation and accreditations will not be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Successful applicants will be notified and provided with further information in due course. Furthermore, please be advised that international applicants are responsible for obtaining their own visas.
The media centre at the Seine Musicale will be open on Saturday, 8 December from 15:00 to 23:00 and a mixed zone will be in operation following the draw event. Media
