MATCH DAY MEDIA POLICY
Credentialed media members attending a match will be allowed access to the VIP Parking Lot (Southwest Lot) for that game if an RSVP has been submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org at least 48 hours prior to the match. Those with season credentials must still RSVP no later than 48 hours prior to each match to guarantee parking.
Credentials will be available for pickup at the media check-in table located at the Southwest entrance to the Union Plaza beginning two hours prior to kick off. Each person must pick up their own credentials and present corresponding photo identification. Bibs will be provided to all photographers and videographers. Following the first home match of the season, photographers with season credentials will only be required to pick up a bib. Professional behavior while in possession of a credential is expected at all times. Any unauthorized use of a credential will result in ejection from Cardinale Stadium and confiscation of the credentials.
PRESS LEVEL MEDIA DECK
The Press Level Media Deck is located outside of the press box on the South side of the stadium and will open two hours prior to kickoff. All credentialed media members with press-level access will be assigned a seat on the Media Deck, provided an RSVP was made to email@example.com at least 48 prior to the match. If an RSVP is not submitted by the 48-hour deadline, a seat on the Media Deck cannot be guaranteed. Those with season credentials must still RSVP no later than 48 hours prior to each match to guarantee seating. Please dress warm for evening matches.
FIELD LEVEL MEDIA ZONE
The Field Level Media Zone is located in the Northwest corner of the stadium, adjacent to the 1st Capital Bank Lounge. Bibs will be provided to all photographers and videographers upon arrival at the media check-in table and must be worn at all times. Prior to leaving the stadium, please return all bibs to the designated media usher located inside the Media Zone. Photographers may only shoot from inside the Media Zone.
VISITING TEAM MEDIA
Visiting team media will be required to pick up their credentials and bibs at the media check-in table, unless otherwise prearranged, and may shoot from inside the field boards for warm-ups and the player walk-out ceremony. Following the conclusion of pregame lineup photos, visiting team media must immediately clear out to their designated zone, adjacent to the visitor’s bench.
Game notes and statistics will be available digitally, no hard copies will be delivered during the match. Requests for this information should be made to Steven Vargo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On-field postgame interviews with players will be allowed for the broadcast crew by request only. Approximately 10-15 minutes after the final whistle, a postgame media availability will begin inside the 1st Capital Bank Lounge. At that time, Monterey Bay F.C. Head Coach Frank Yallop and players will be made available to attending media for questions. A postgame quote sheet will be distributed via email following each match.
