Thank you for your interest in covering Switchbacks home matches during the 2023 season.
Credentials will be issued on a single-game basis. Please take a moment to read through the information below before completing your credential application:
- Credential applications must be submitted no later than 24 hours before kickoff of the requested match.
- Credentials are only for media outlets that need gameday Press Box and/or Field access to produce editorial coverage, not to just watch the match. This includes newspapers, TV, radio and legitimate digital websites that produce consistent and professional content adhering to accepted journalistic principles.
- Applications from freelance writers, photographers or videographers must come from a direct supervisor validating professional and editorial need for media access. All applications using a personal email address (e.g., Gmail, Hotmail), must provide validation of assignment from their outlet.
- By applying for a credential, media members agree and understand that they will be operating under strict safety protocols. Failure to comply with the protocols will result in immediate removal from the venue and credentials will be revoked.
Please note photographers will be required to shoot from designated areas.
The Switchbacks will conduct an in-person press conference with head coach Stephen Hogan and a Switchbacks player following the conclusion of the match on the field. A member of the Switchbacks’ communications staff will escort media down to the field following the game.
The Switchbacks communications and stadium operations team review each application individually and reserve the right to deny any application that does not meet the criteria stated above. If approved you will receive an email with the check-in processes and protocols.
