Confirmations or rejections will be communicated directly by email prior to the event.
Media representatives wishing to cancel any bookings may do so by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org in order to avoid being assigned a no-show.
Accreditations for the draws at the Grimaldi Forum are not valid for the match at Stade Louis II, and vice versa. Media accredited for the game may attend the pre-match press conferences at the Grimaldi Forum provided they get a press activities pass from the media accreditation counters at the Forum.
Media representatives wishing to cover the draws live at the Grimaldi Forum will have to do so from the media working area, as there will be no special facilities or connections inside the draw hall.
Radio stations wishing to broadcast the match live are requested to contact TEAM Marketing (email@example.com /+41 (0)41 368 18 18).
