Media accreditation

The 2022 Wheelchair Rugby World Championship in Vejle welcomes all media to Denmark. The communications team is committed to helping domestic and international media cover all angles of the tournament, and is happy to facilitate interview requests and media inquiries. During the championship, media will be provided with photos, video highlights, results and a wealth of statistics.

All members of the media must apply for and receive a media accreditation to benefit from the press facilities and services in Vejle. Accreditation is also possible upon arrival at DGI Huset, Vejle, but accreditation in advance is highly recommended and appreciated to save time and in order for the organizers to anticipate the demand for services.

To be accredited as a member of the media, please send an e-mail introducing yourself to Media Manager Jannik Lund Andersen at jla@parasport.dk

Please include:

  • Name
  • Country
  • Role (Journalist, photographer or VJ)
  • Media
  • Means of transport to Vejle
  • Accommodation in Vejle
  • Length of your stay in Vejle
  • Passport photo/headshot

All accredited persons will receive an accreditation card upon their first entry at DGI Huset, Vejle. The accreditation card must be used to access the media center, mixed zone, photo zones and to make use of other media services at DGI Huset.

COVID-19 guidelines
COVID-19 restrictions no longer apply in Denmark, and COVID-19 is no longer considered a critical threat to Danish society.

However, in respect of countries that still have restrictions in place and to ensure that the tournament can proceed with as little impact from the ongoing pandemic as possible, a COVID-19 Mitigation Plan has been developed by WWR, Sport Event Denmark, the National Health Authorities in Danmark, the Health Care System of Vejle and Parasport Denmark for athletes, team staff, officials, classifiers, WWR board and committee members as well as event staff.

Members of the media are asked to show consideration towards players and staff, and to follow the general advice from the Danish health authorities to prevent infection and avoid the spread of COVID-19. Hand sanitizer and face masks will be available in the media center and mixed zone.
