Media accreditation

Both local and international media representatives wishing to attend a FIBA event must apply directly to FIBA by using the online accreditation system.

The online accreditation system allows media professionals around the world to request a media accreditation which will grant them access to the competitions and offer them complementary media services on-site.

We remind you that only professional members of the media will be considered for accreditation.

Please note that submitting an online form is an application only and thereby does not guarantee the granting of accreditation.

Applicants will be informed of the success of their accreditation requests by the date specified for each event in the Media Centre. Please note that every accreditation application for a FIBA event is specific to one Championship.

Two accreditation periods are planned for certain Championships. For these Championships, all things equal, priority will be given to media having applied during the first phase (regular application period). Media choosing to apply during the second window may be more vulnerable to space limitations.

Only applications completed and submitted online within the deadlines will be taken into consideration.

The final decision to grant accreditation rests with FIBA.
