Any request received less than 3 days in advance will not be considered. Applications for media credentials must be received no later than Friday, September 9. Phone requests will not be accepted.

Media credentials are reserved for working print, broadcast journalists, and sports analysts with commercial news organizations and recognized publications. The publication must feature content about Lone Star Sports Inc.

Marketing, public relations, advertising, sales, art directors, managers, publishers, and other non-editorial professionals of media organizations are not eligible for media credentials and should purchase tickets.

A history of being registered at previous Lone Star Sports events does not guarantee approval or waive the credential requirements. Only credentials issued by Lone Star Sports, INC. are valid for entry; no other media credentials will be recognized or accepted.

Submitting a credential request does not guarantee that you will receive media credentials.

Media credentials will not be granted to anyone whose principal purpose, in our sole judgment, is for reasons other than covering the game as working news media.

Lone Star Sports reserves the right, in its sole judgment, to limit the number of approved requests per media organization, or to revoke issued media credentials at any time.
