Sports Journalists’ Association members can now purchase an AIPS card – the internationally-recognised media accreditation – for the next two-year cycle, starting January 2024…

By The SJA

Validation is now available for the biennial AIPS card.

The International Sports Press Association (AIPS), formed in 1924, is the international members’ association for sports journalists.

The AIPS card is internationally recognised and stipulated on by certain countries.

If you are based in Great Britain, to be a member of the AIPS you must also be a member of the Sports Journalists’ Association.

To obtain the new card, whether a new or existing member of the AIPS, there are two steps.

Firstly, you must visit the following link to confirm your information: Click here

Secondly, you must pay the £50 card fee. This must be paid online: Click here

When both of the above steps have been completed, we are able to process your card.

Please be aware the cards are produced by AIPS themselves and sent to the SJA to be forwarded on to the member. As such, we order the cards in batches so there can be a delay in your card arriving.
