Mixed Zone interview opportunities
Interview opportunities will be organized for all Rights-Holding and Non-Rights Holding media. These interviews will be carried out in a pre-defined location around the court area or in an appropriate Mixed zone area.
Post-game Press Conferences
Press conferences will be organized in the venues. All media representatives will be entitled to attend in person but their presence will also depend on available space.
As access to the venues is now guaranteed, remote access to the post-game press conferences may not be available for all games (for ex. Via Zoom).

Access to Practice Sessions
Subject to FIBA confirmation a limited number of Rights-Holders and selected Non-Rights Holder will have the possibility to access the end (5 minutes) of practice sessions. Arrangements should be made on-site with the Broadcast Operations Venue Manager and Media Officer.

Media accreditation will only be provided to individuals who comply with the local testing requirements (according to host country regulations).
