Media accreditation to FIFA Confederations Cup 2017


FIFA informs that the accreditation process for media representatives wishing to cover the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 has been launched via the FIFA Media Channel:

The deadline for accreditation applications is 31 January 2017.

The FIFA Confederations Cup will be played in Kazan, Moscow, Saint-Petersburg and Sochi from 17 June to 2 July 2017.

Media accreditation for written press and photographers will be managed through the FIFA Media Channel. Applications via the FIFA Media Channel will also be accepted from non-rights holders (NRHs, media entities that have not acquired the rights for the broadcast coverage of the event).

Please be informed that the number of NRH accreditations issued for the FIFA Confederations Cup will be very limited and furthermore, that their access to venues will be restricted to non-match days only.

There is a separate accreditation process for FIFA Media Rights Licensees (MRLs) that is serviced by the FIFA Broadcaster Servicing team, who will be in contact with MRLs via the usual communication channels. For further queries, please contact

Media representatives who do not have an approved FIFA Media Channel account can submit a registration form by visiting

Please note that approval to access the FIFA Media Channel does not mean that you have been granted accreditation. Media accreditation for any FIFA event requires the completion of an accreditation form that can be accessed from the FIFA Media Channel.

All applications are subject to confirmation, which will not be on a first-come, first-served basis. Successful applicants will be notified and provided with further information in due course. Furthermore, please be advised that international applicants are responsible for obtaining their own visas. There will be a dedicated and simplified visa process for media that will be communicated to all approved applicants.
