MEDIA POLICIES

Credentials will be issued upon request to working members of the print and broadcast media. Internet-based media members will be provided credentials on a space-available basis. The UNCG Athletic Communications office retains the right to deny or revoke credentials to media outlets or a specific member of the media.

All requests for credentials must be received no later than 36 hours before the game. Credential requests made on the day of the game cannot be guaranteed and should be avoided.

Media members will have parking passes mailed to them in advance of the game. All media credentials will be picked up at the media entrance at the Greensboro Coliseum. The media entrance at the Greensboro Coliseum is located off of the service drive between the Coliseum and the Special Events Center.

Any outlet that is issued a season credential should still contact the Athletic Communications office to obtain courtside seating for all events. 

Professional scouts should contact the Athletic Communications office for press row space. Professional scouts will be required to buy a ticket and shall only receive space on press row if seats are available. 

Spouses, dates and children will not be granted working credentials. Non-working media will only be issued credentials on a space-available basis.

Requests for media credentials should be sent to Assistant AD of Athletic Communications Matt McCollester, UNCG Athletic Communications, PO Box 26168, Greensboro, NC, 27402 or e-mail to matt.mccollester@uncg.edu.

Additional interviews can be arranged for in the media work area or in the vicinity of the locker room.
