    Application for Press Accreditation


    I have been accreditated at past events.
    I apply for the first time.


    Where can I apply for accreditation?

    You can apply for accreditation only online. Please fill in our online accreditation form. Please note the deadline for accreditation (soon available).  Accreditation inquiries after this date cannot be accepted.

    What do I need to apply for accreditation?

    Please fill in the online form completely. It will facilitate the accreditation process for you and for us if you can also upload a portrait photograph of yourself (ideally in 120px X 150px).

    Freelancers and photographers should fax, besides a copy of their Press ID, also a confirmation of the editorial office of the magazine / newspaper they will be working for in Aachen. Accreditation without work order cannot be accepted. Each medium can accredit one journalist for the CHIO.

    Will I be informed if my accreditation request has been accepted?

    We will contact you after having received your request. Please desist from any enquiries until then. You will receive an E-Mail confirmation after your request has been approved or refused. Unfortunately, the steadily growing number of accreditation inquiries forces us to limit the number of media representatives allowed at the CHIO. If delays in the accreditation procedure may occur thereby, we will kindly ask you for your understanding.

    How can I find accomodation in Aachen?

    The CHIO Aachens official hotel reservation partner is looking forward to assist you in finding an accomodation:

A new feature this year: Flash quotes of the athletes will be made available exclusively via the press intranet.

    Are there lockers?

    Lockers are available in limited numbers in the Press Center, further information at the counter. Unfortunately, pre-reservations are not possible.


    Is there a guarantee for seating places on the press tribunes?

    There is no guarantee for seating places on the press tribunes, especially in the Main Stadium. We reserve ourselves the right to save seating places for specific media.

    When and where will press conferences be held?

    Press conferences will be held after all important competitions in the press conference room. They start right after the prize giving ceremonies. Please also note the posted information in the press centre for any additional press conferences.


    Is there a "dress code"?

    TV-Teams, photographers and other media representatives that enter the stadiums' infield areas are requested to follow the dress code. Forbidden are sponsor brandings on clothing.


    I am a photographer. How will I be able to get permission to enter the stadiums' infield areas?

    You can apply for stadium bibs at the press centre's counter. To obtain the bib, you have to submit a security deposit. The bibs for the Main Stadium are allocated on the basis of a rotation principle. The counter personnel decides over the allocation of bibs. Please follow the instructions of our employees, otherwise we reserve ourselves the right to confiscate the accreditation.

    Are there Mixed Zones for interviews with the athletes?

    It is possible to hold short interviews at the side of the warm-up areas. The Riders Corner in the Press Centre is available for more lengthy discussions. If you want to interview a specific athlete, our staff at the press counter will be glad to assist you getting into contact with him/her.
