As from 7 December, media representatives who have been assigned an accreditation key by their football association may proceed to access the media accreditation from via the FIFA Media Channel.

FFIRI- The media accreditation process for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil will be launched on 7 December 2013, the day after the Final Draw and will close on 31 January 2014. In order for media representatives to be able to access and submit the online accreditation form, they will need two important items: firstly, an approved FIFA Media Channel account and secondly a unique user ID and electronic key.
As from the end of February2014, FIFA and the LOC will begin the process of sending accreditation confirmations followed by further information in due course (media representatives should refer to the FIFA Media Channel for information),
The online media ticket application process to request tickets for the 48 group matches will commence on 17 March 2014. Ticket requests will be handled exclusively through the FIFA Media Channel ticketing system. Only media representatives who have already submitted a media accreditation form will be able to request tickets from the list of 48 group matches.
AFIFA Media Channel account is absolutely essential in order to access the media accreditation form and media ticketing system. Access to the FIFA Media Channel is restricted and can only be gained using an individual user ID and password. Media representatives who already have a Media Channel account will be able to access the media accreditation form and media ticketing system.
Media representatives who have not yet registered to access the FIFA Media Channel may do so by completing the online registration from at: http://media.fifa.com/registration.
It is important to note that the special user ID and electronic key to access the online media accreditation form are NOT the same as the individual user ID and password to access the FIFA Media Channel.
The media accreditation approval letter is NOT a visa to enter Brazil. All accredited media representatives visiting Brazil are advised that they may require a visa to enter the country and should check this with their Brazilian embassy or consulate accordingly. It is the applicant’s responsibility to obtain any required visa, and FIFA will not send any letter of recommendation to obtain one.
