  • Any credential request coming from an unofficial email address will be automatically reviewed and the applicant may be asked to provide links to story samples.

  • At its discretion, the event reserves the right to deny or rescind any individual/outlet’s media credential.

These areas are the only places where photographers/videographers may sit on the floor and shoot. Photos may be taken while sitting in the general seating area as long as the other spectators’ views are not adversely affected. Photographers/videographers (with cameras) are the only ones allowed in the designated photo areas. Photographers/videographers may not photograph or record the medical/athletic trainer sections of the courts.
  • Web streaming is not permitted unless approved by Position Sports.
