MATCHDAY ACCREDITATION

All journalists and photographers require valid accreditation for fixtures at Oriel Park, applied for on a match-by-match basis.

Requests may be submitted by using the form on our Accreditations Page or by email to press@dundalkfc.com no later than 48 hours before the fixture itself. Accreditation requests received after this will not be accepted.

The request should detail who will be attending, their matchday role and the publication in which any report is intended to appear.

All journalists and photographers must be in possession of a valid 2021 FAI Media Pass provided by the Football Association of Ireland.

The club may request proof of credentials, particularly from freelancers or newly established media organisations/outlets.

The club reserves the right to refuse requests for accreditation which arrive after the deadline or don’t fulfil the relevant criteria.

If your application for accreditation is approved you will typically receive a confirmation email. To pick up your match-by-match pass, present this confirmation, together with proof of your identity, at the media entrance to the ground which is located in the main stand at Oriel Park.
