SAN JUAN (FIBA U18 Women’s Americas Championship 2018)- Media accreditation is now opened for the FIBA U18 Women’s Americas Championship 2018 set to take place from August 1-7 in Mexico City.

All media representatives who wish to attend the continental championship are kindly requested to apply using the FIBA Media Portal. Only after registering in the FIBA Media Portal it's possible to apply for media accreditation for the event.

The deadline for submitting applications is July 31.

The application information submitted will be subject to a review process.


Successful applicants will be notified by FIBA Americas Regional Office, 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.

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 to be considered for credentials.

Credentials will be awarded on basis of the professional history of the applying media, relevance to the event and basketball in general, as well as space availability.
