Media Accreditation for the BCL Americas Final 8 in Rio de Janeiro now open

We are pleased to inform you that the media accreditation process for the BCL Americas Final 8 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is now underway.

The event will take place from 6 April to 9 April at Arena Carioca 1.

Only media accreditation requests submitted via the FIBA Media Portal by the deadline will be considered.

The deadline to apply is Friday, 1 April 2022 (23:59 CET).


1. Log-in to the FIBA Media Portal or, if you are a new user, create a new profile;
2. Select “Basketball Champions League Americas F8 2022” under the "My Events" section (to be found at the top of profile page);
3. Complete all registration fields as necessary;
4. IMPORTANT: you will be able to request a “remote coverage accreditation”. This accreditation type will allow you to follow the event remotely and have the opportunity to ask questions to players and coaches virtually during media availability (after the game and during post-game press conferences on Zoom). You will also receive additional content to support your coverage of the event from afar.
5. Make sure that all tabs are filled out correctly and the information is saved. Following registration, you should receive an accreditation submission confirmation email.

Creating a profile or logging in to a previous existing account is not an application in itself; you must make certain that after you create a profile (account) you also proceed to apply for the event (as per steps #1-5 above).

Your email address and password will allow you to access and modify your application form up until the application deadline.


Accreditation decisions will be sent out in due time, and no later than Saturday 2 April 2022.
