IOC and TOROC launch the media accreditation procedure for 2006


The International Olympic Committee (IOC) and the Organising Committee for the Turin Olympic Winter Games (TOROC) are launching the media accreditation procedure for the XX Olympic Winter Games. Each National Olympic Committee will receive notification of their quota of press accreditations from the IOC in October 2004.

It is worth noting that, as with each edition of the Olympic Games, the number of accreditations available to the media is very limited. In order to maintain a high level of services for the world press, the International Olympic Committee will not exceed the number of accreditations allocated in 2002 for the Salt Lake City Olympic Winter Games.



For media interested in applying for accreditation to cover the XX Olympic Winter Games in Turin, February 2006.
