Each individual will need to create an account with their own username and password.
If a single administrator is handling accreditation on behalf of others, it will be their responsibility to create an account for each individual prior to the dates detailed above.
If using the system for the first time:
- Follow link www.rfu.com/pressaccreditation
- Screen 1: Click on ‘New Registration’
- Screen 2: Complete ALL fields and press ‘Proceed To Step 2’
- Screen 3: Complete ALL fields (including photo upload) and press ‘Proceed to Event Selection’
- Screen 4: Tick the games you would like to apply for and press ‘Save Changes’
Within 48 hours of registering 2 automated emails will be sent: the first to confirm your username and password, the second to confirm which games you have requested.
If you are a previous user you will notice that the appearance has slightly changed, however the process is the same.
On first arrival back into the system, once you have entered your username and password, you will be required to update your existing details, including a new photo upload. After this you will automatically be at stage 5. If you are unable to remember your log in details please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
In the week leading up to each game you have applied for, you will receive an email confirming whether or not your application has been successful. Due to the high number of requests we are unable to determine numbers and allocate places until the system closes eight days prior to match day.
For all accreditation enquiries contact Charlotte Trusson, RFU Communications Team Administrator, on 0208 831 6563 or email@example.com
