The candidates must register an account on the official KHL Media Portal (https://media.khl.ru/) if needed and send their application for a seasonal 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 the 2020-21 season accreditation runs through August 2, 2020, and is carried out using an electronic system, where your data are transferred to when sending the application. 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 the registration.
A decision on acceptance or otherwise of applications will be made on or before August 15, 2020, and confirmation of successful applicants will be sent your email address. 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 August 25, 2020 (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 the Season Accreditation, which can be viewed here. Observance of the Provisions is mandatory for all media personnel seeking the 2020-21 seasonal accreditation.
All inquiries 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 installed on your device.
