The ECB online accreditation application system is now open for 2010.
Please read the 2010 Media Terms and Conditions, Guidelines and the Online Application Process documents in the accreditation section of the ECB website – www.ecb.co.uk/accreditation – before you visit the online accreditation application system – https://accred.ecb.co.uk
Registered users from last season must log in to the application system with the username (email address) and password that they used last season, but will be able to change those details once in the system by clicking on the ‘Your Account’ tab. Anyone that does not have a record of their password from last season must click on the ‘click here if you have forgotten your password’ link on the home page of the system and a new password will be sent to the email address you used last season. Your photo from last season will also appear as you progress through the application but you will have the option to change it should you so wish.
Further instructions for registered users and new users can be found in the On-line Application Process document on the ECB website.
Its a very similar procedure to last year in that you will need to apply for an International Media, a County Season or an Individual International Match pass but we now require everyone to select the International matches they wish to attend over the course of the season so we have a more accurate idea of our Press Box and Photographers’ Positions numbers for each match.
You will receive an automatic response once you have registered and on completion of your application. All successful applications received before the early season deadline of 3 March will be processed in time for the start of the domestic season but succesful applications received after this date may not be processed in time for the start of the domestic season. The final deadline for all ECB season passes is 7 June.
In closing, should you experience any problems with your application or have any queries concerning the accreditation process please do email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply as soon as I can.
