Media Accreditation

Media accreditation for The Varsity Match featuring the Men’s and Women’s Varsity Matches to be played at Twickenham Stadium on Thursday, 7 December, should be applied for through the RFU’s online system: www.englandrugby.com/pressaccreditation

The system closes on Monday, 27 November. Requests made after the deadline will not be accepted.

Twickenham Stadium annual pass holders must still register their attendance on the system.

How to apply:

All photographers, written media and non-rights holders must apply through this system.

Each individual will need to create an account with their own username and password. Where a single administrator is handling accreditation on behalf of others, it will be their responsibility to create an account for each individual prior to the dates detailed above.
