All media representatives wishing to cover the IOC meetings must have an accreditation badge.
-          Games-accredited media will not need any additional accreditation to cover the IOC Executive Board and Session meetings.

Once this accreditation is obtained, media representatives will then need to bring this card to the Media Accreditation Centre in order to request a guest pass to access the Main Press Centre (MPC) where all briefings will take place.
