Match Accreditation
Matchday media accreditation at Roots Hall must be requested through the Football DataCo Internet Press Booking System (I-PBS). Broadcast, print, web journalists or photographers must have the correct media licence, obtained via Dataco who organise this for both the EFL and the Premier League.
Please note, all media requests must be received at least 48 hours before kick-off. You will be unable to apply via I-PBS after this point, and it is unlikely requests direct to the club will be accepted.
Pre-match Press Conferences
Pre-match press conferences are usually held on a Monday morning for Tuesday night matches and a Thursday morning for Saturday games. If you wish to attend, please email
For any other non-matchday media enquiries please email the media team or call on 01702 304119.
