Media accreditation process
Please note that the media accreditation process for any FIFA competition is done in two steps:

Register for access to the FIFA Media Channel by logging on to: http://media.fifa.com/

You will then receive notification approving your access to the FIFA Media Channel.

Once you have received your username and password, or if you are already registered, log on to: http://media.fifa.com. Select FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2011 from the “Competitions & Events” section, and complete the online media accreditation form.

The FIFA Media Channel is a password-protected website updated constantly during a competition. It is designed to provide media professionals with information on the latest event activities, including press conferences, team training sessions, details about competition media facilities including stadium media centres (SMCs) and media ticketing. You will also find useful contacts and other media resources.

Access to the FIFA Media Channel and an accreditation application do not guarantee an accreditation for a FIFA competition. If we are unable to accommodate you on this occasion, you will be informed by e-mail.

Visa information 
Media visiting Japan are advised that they may require a visa to enter the country and are responsible for making their own arrangements.
