The League has begun accepting applications from media personnel seeking accreditation for the 2017-18 season of the Kontinental Hockey League Championship. To apply, candidates must create an account on the official KHL MediaPortal and complete the application for season accreditation.
Registered users and their submitted applications will undergo a preliminary check by the web portal administrator, and as a result, the response times to applications may vary.
The period for submitting applications for 2017-18 season accreditation runs from the 29th of June to the 30th of July, 2017. Applications will be processed electronically, and therefore, in the event of any clarification of submitted information being required, the applicant will be notified via email to the address specified by the applicant during registration.
A decision on acceptance or otherwise of applications will be made on or before the 10th of August, 2017, and confirmation of successful application will be sent to the email address provided by the applicant. The KHL will then forward the accreditation cards to the press officers of the relevant hockey clubs, where they can be collected by the successful applicants. Accreditation cards may be collection from the 15th of August, 2017 (applicants should confirm specific dates and times for collection with the press service of the relevant club).
We ask that media personnel familiarize themselves with the Provisions for 2017-18 Season Accreditation, which can be viewed here. Observance of the Provisions is mandatory for all media personnel seeking accreditation.
All enquiries relating to the new system of accreditation should be sent via email to the address firstname.lastname@example.org, accompanied by a written description of the relevant problem area, with screenshots attached, plus relevant technical information – i.e. browser version and operating system used by applicant’s PC.
