Accreditation: Olympic football and sailing venues

From the BOA

The British Olympic Association has secured a limited number of single venue accreditations, so called Ex and EPx accreditations, primarily for local and regional media in the Co-Host cities for football and sailing only.

The accreditation process for Ex and EPx accreditations is open until April 30. Applications must be submitted via email to by April 30.

The single venue accreditation will cover one of the following football venues: Old Trafford, Manchester; Millennium Stadium, Cardiff; St James’ Park, Newcastle; Hampden Park, Glasgow; and City of Coventry Stadium (please note that Wembley Stadium is NOT included) or the sailing venue in Weymouth.

Organisations have the full responsibility to apply to the BOA for accreditation within the required period. Late applications will not be considered.

Please note that there are limited numbers available so an application is not a guarantee of accreditation. The BOA will notify all applicants (successful and unsuccessful) in late May 2011.

Please note the BOA is only responsible for the allocation of press and photographer accreditations.

For media accreditation enquiries please contact: Laura Meech, Communications Assistant: 0207 842 5700.
