The League has begun accepting applications from media personnel seeking accreditation for the 2017-18 season of the Kontinental Hockey League Championship. The League has redesigned its Media Portal and optimized the accreditation procedure. The process remains the same: the candidates must register an account on the official KHL MediaPortal (khlmedia.ru). Typing back the old data is not required as the media representatives will only need to update some as necessary.
Now, the process of accreditation for all the representatives of a single media can go through a single account. To achieve this, you should add all the company’s collaborators in the united personal area, create a list of those for whom the seasonal accreditation is requested, and file in a collective application.
If last year you visited KHL games on a constant base, indicate the number of all the accredited persons at the application filing. This will simplify the decision-making process for the next year’s accreditation. In some cases, the MediaPortal administrator may ask for a press clipping – in this case, you will get notified in your account.
If this is the first time that you apply for a KHL accreditation, you will need to create an account in the KHL MediaPortal (khlmedia.ru), wait for the account’s confirmation by the administrator, and file in the accreditation application for you and your colleagues, following the system’s directions. If you are a new collaborator of an already-accredited agency, you will need to ask your boss or coordinator to add your application to the system.
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 July 15 through August 5, 2018. 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 and in your account on the MediaPortal.
A decision on acceptance or otherwise of applications will be made on or before August 15, 2018, and confirmation of successful application will be sent your email address and in your account. 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 collected from the August 25, 2018 (applicants should confirm specific dates and times for collection with the press service of the relevant club). The applicants residing in Moscow can collect their accreditation from the KHL office. In this case, dates and times will be communicated separately.
We ask that media personnel familiarize themselves with the Provisions for 2018/2019 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 email@example.com, accompanied by a written description of the relevant problem area, with screenshots attached, plus relevant technical information – i.e. browser version and operating system installed on your computer.
