Matchday Accreditation

Press requests for all of City's first-team matches at Ashton Gate can be made online through the booking system on the DataCo Press Accreditation website, i-PBS.

Please note, all media requests must be received at least 48 hours before kick-off. You will be unable to apply via i-PBS after this point, and it is unlikely requests direct to the club will be accepted.

All journalists and photographers must have a Media Accreditation number and pass provided by Football DataCo.

Press passes and matchday programmes on the day of the game are available to collect from the Media Entrance at Ashton Gate, located at the north end of the stadium.

Please note, we have very limited parking facilities for the media, often given to rights holders and the opposition club in first instance.

Pre-Match & Post-Match Interviews

Pre-match press conferences take place at Ashton Gate, offering interview opportunities to speak to the management and selected members of the playing staff prior to matches. The club must be notified in advance of who will be attending the pre-match press calls. A member of the coaching staff and a player normally speak to the press prior to every matchday and also following each first-team fixture.
