Lausanne (SUI), 24 April 2019. — Under the traditional agreement that has been in place for previous Olympic Games, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has granted the FEI a quota of sport specific press accreditations for Tokyo 2020. However, due to strong demand for press accreditation for the 2020 Games across all sports, we have been advised by the IOC that numbers are limited for the equestrian events.

Any specialised equestrian written and photographic press who have been unable to get accreditation through their National Olympic Committee and who have not already contacted the FEI, should do so without delay. The deadline for Tokyo 2020 applications through the FEI is Friday, May 17, 2019.

Please contact the FEI Communications Department by email (shannon.gibbons@fei.org )

Applications sent to the FEI must include full contact details of the media outlet, including email, mobile telephone number and website, comprehensive information regarding its circulation and/or the number of unique visitors per month, and outline in detail the coverage planned for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic equestrian events.

Media who have applied for accreditation through the FEI will be informed directly by the IOC if their application has been successful.

Although the final decision on the allocation of Olympic accreditation rests with the IOC, the FEI will of course do its best to assist specialist photographers and journalists in the accreditation process for Tokyo. We are happy to answer any queries you may have.

Please note: For the purpose of your accreditation request, we will need to transfer your personal data to the IOC.


25 May 2019 – Deadline for press accommodation requirements through official Tokyo 2020 channels. (Media can manage their own accommodation bookings after this date.)

21 October 2019 – Press by Name accreditation process begins.

Full details on the accreditation procedure are available on the IOC website at www.olympic.org.
