Accreditation guidelines
Accreditations are only (provisionally) valid during the 2017/18 season for league, relegation play-off and friendly matches featuring RB Leipzig at the Red Bull Arena or at an alternate location if applicable.

If necessary, RB Leipzig reserves the right, under the terms of accreditation, to ask the applicant to submit proof of work/editorial confirmation from their respective outlet/employer. We reserve the right to refuse accreditations.

(!) Please keep your accreditation visible at all times when inside the stadium. Your designated place in the stadium’s media section will be noted on your accreditation.

Collecting accreditation: Confirmed accreditation/work cards can be picked up on the day of the match by presenting your press pass at the media office, which is located to the right of the main entrance (opposite the stadium forecourt, at the entrance marked "Stadionführungen").

(!) Accreditation for Champions League games must be applied for separately and will be available for selection in the drop-down menu.

Photographer guidelines

Bibs for pitchside accreditation can be collected from the media office (to the right of the main entrance) upon receipt of a deposit and are to be returned to the same office. Please use the side entrances in the underground car park to access the pitchside photographers’ work stations. You must be in place approximately ten minutes before kick-off.

You will be able to take photos of the coaches in front of the dugout right up until the coin toss before the match. Then we ask you to please return to your places behind the advertising boards. You are not allowed to enter the field of play before, during, or after the match!

(!) All freelance photographers must confirmed upon application for accreditation that they have liability insurance and must be able to provide proof if necessary.
