The International Hockey Federation (FIH) and England Hockey (EH) are pleased to announce that the media accreditation process for the upcoming men’s and women’s Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 events in London, England is now open.
All members of the media who would like to be considered for accreditation need to apply online via the FIH media accreditation portal, the link to which can be found below. There are three phases to the accreditation process.
First time users will need to register their email address and create a password. Once this information has been submitted, an automatic email will be sent containing a link that will allow you to confirm the registration of your email address.
2: Apply for FIH Events Accreditation System
After your registration has been confirmed, you can log in with your email address and chosen password and provide us with information about yourself. Simply fill in the form and click the Submit button. The FIH Media Team will assess your details before emailing you about the next step in due course.
3: Register for an event
Upon the receipt of an email explaining that your applicant request has been accepted, you can now apply for media accreditation for FIH events. This can be done in the Manage Accreditations section by clicking the ADD button at the bottom of the page. FIH / England Hockey will inform you in due course regarding whether or not your application has been successful for that particular event.
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that emails sent from the accreditation portal may be filtered into your junk mail or spam folders. Please make sure that you check these folders. We would strongly recommend that you add the following email address – firstname.lastname@example.org - to your Safe Senders List to ensure that messages sent from our system arrive safely in your inbox.

The closing date for all media accreditation requests for the Hockey Champions Trophy 2016 is Friday 13th May 2016.
Applying for an accreditation for FIH events do not automatically guarantee the right to receive an accreditation. All persons who are successful in their application for an accreditation will receive a confirmation email. Applications not completed in full will not be approved for onsite media access.
FIH and England Hockey will do their utmost to give accreditations to as many working members of the media as possible. That said, the expected high demand for accreditation at this showpiece event means that there will undoubtedly be some disappointments. We will inform you as soon as possible as to whether or not your application for accreditation has been successful.
