Media accreditation for FC Schalke 04 home matches at the VELTINS Arena can be applied for by full-time sports journalists working in the areas of print, radio, internet and photography, provided they can present an official press card (AIPS) and an official letter of assignment issued by a media organisation.

Applications for accreditation must be made using the official German Football League (DFL) form. Please send the form, including the attachments, by email, fax or post to the adjacent address.

The accreditation deadline for Bundesliga matches is five working days before the day of the game and ten working days for European matches.

No accreditation will be issued after the deadline closes. By submitting the application for accreditation you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by the terms of the media guidelines.

FC Schalke 04 reserves the right to cancel an accreditation if the capacity of the working areas for media representatives is full or if a request for accreditation conflicts with the DFL media guidelines.
