Photographer information

  • Photographers working pitchside must collect a bib at the media entrance (to the right of the main entrace) in exchange for a deposit (e.g. press credentials). They can be returned at the same location.

    Access to the photographer's area pitchside is only possible via the side entrances of the underground garage. Pitchside photographers must take their places approximately ten minutes before kick-off. 

    The following positions are available to photographers pitchside (you must stay behind the perimeter boards):
    • Behind the goals
    • During the game: Sector C side of the pitch up to the edge of the penalty area (not between sectors B and C – away section)

You may not enter the pitch before, during or after the game.

All four areas behind the corner flags are equipped with LAN ports in the pitch perimeter for photographers. You will need to bring your own LAN cable of sufficient length.

Photographers have access to the exclusive photo network "Leipzig2023+24Digital".

All freelance photographers must confirm that they have professional liability insurance during their application for accreditation, and must be able to provide evidence upon request.
