Information regarding how to use the FIH Media Accreditation Portal can be found by clicking here.
The closing date for all media accreditation requests is Tuesday 31st October 2017. As always, applying for an accreditation does 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.
A quick point of note. FIH and Hockey New Zealand 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 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.
Complete details regarding the name, location and nightly room rates of the media hotel, which is located close to the venue, will be supplied to successful applicants in the accreditation confirmation email. A shuttle service to and from the venue will be running at regular intervals from a pick-up point a short walk from the hotel.
We very much look forward to welcoming you in Auckland.
FIH / Hockey New Zealand Media Team
