Guia de Medios 2014a

  1. 1. MEDIA GUIDE2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRA ZIL™
  2. 2. Welcome The time has come It gives us great pleasure, as FIFA President and chairman of the Organising Committee for the FIFA World Cup™ respectively, to welcome all media representatives to the 20th edition of FIFA’s flagship event in the home of the five-time winners Brazil, some 64 years since it was last held here back in 1950. The Brazilians’ happiness and famous passion for football, coupled with the country’s rich diversity of landscapes, colours and flavours, will make this World Cup the only place to be for fans from all over the world. It will also be the perfect stage for the media to capture the magic of our sport and to discover even more about the country that gave football so many of its greatest players. FIFA, the Local Organising Committee, the Brazilian federal government and the Host Cities are all ready to welcome the world: 32 participating member associations, international and national media representatives, volunteers, dignitaries, guests and supporters who are excited to follow their favourite players and watch outstanding matches in 12 top-class stadiums. But the party could never be complete without the people who will experience the World Cup through your stories of the events that happen on and off the pitch. Knowing the importance and role of the media in this, our media team has worked hard with the LOC to provide you with the very best infrastructure, technology and media services, which have all been tailored to your needs to try and make your job easier. We trust that the final whistle of 2014 FIFA World Cup™ will bring a feeling of accomplishment to all those involved in making history in 2014, the year in which the World Cup returned to the land of football. Joseph S. Blatter FIFA President Eugenio Figueredo Chairman of the Organising Committee for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™
  3. 3. Welcome Dear media colleagues, It is our pleasure to welcome you to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. We are looking forward to receiving you in the same hospitable way the Brazilian people traditionally welcome their visitors. We are working hard to make sure you are surrounded by the comfort, security and amenities you need to carry out your work in perfect conditions. On the pitch we will have 32 competing teams who earned their right to be at the tournament, including all eight former winners of the most sought-after trophy on the planet. The 12 modern venues, which have been either completely renovated or built from scratch for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, will provide the perfect stage for the lead actors, the best players in the world, but also those who are reporting on their feats. We are convinced the World Cup will be a wonderful spectacle and an unforgettable experience for all the spectators watching the matches in the 12 new Brazilian stadiums. But it is through your work that the planet’s biggest football tournament will reach billions of football fans the world over. Those who were at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil can testify that it was the best tournament in the history of the event. We firmly believe we will make the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ an unprecedented success, with the following significant records auguring well for a memorable tournament: 11 million ticket requests from all over the world, over 150,000 registered volunteers and 18,000 accredited journalists. We are sure you will all have an unforgettable professional and personal experience in Brazil. We wish you good luck in your work. Jose Maria Marin Chairman of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ Brazil Organising Committee Ricardo Trade CEO of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™ Brazil Organising Committee

  12. 12. MEDIA INFORMATION
  13. 13. Media Accreditation 7 Introduction Media accreditation is the guarantee of access of media professionals to stadiums and to the areas where they will work, in accordance with a zoning system. Please remember that media accreditation grants access to Stadium Media Centres (SMC), but not automatically to media tribunes, mixed zones and press conference rooms, or to photographer-only locations on the field of play. To access these areas a Supplementary Access Device (SAD) is needed. Accreditation zones relevant to media Zone SADs Area Details 1 * Field of play  Pitch  Substitutes benches  Fourth Official’s bench  Photographers  Pitch and tunnel access  Pitch site position 3 Circulation area  General public entrance and areas  Public toilet facilities  Public points of sale  First aid facilities  Commercial and Host Cities displays 6 * Press box  Media seats  Commentary positions and observers seats  Photographers seats  Mixed Zone  Press Conference room 7 Stadium Media Centre (SMC)  Media working area  Media catering area  Photographers area  Media services 8 * Broadcast Area  TV compound  TV & Radio Studios  Camera Platforms  Flash Interview  Announce Platforms  VIP Interview Position (*) Supplementary Access Devices needed on match days
  14. 14. Media Accreditation 8 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL™ – MEDIA GUIDE Lost or stolen media credentials The loss of media credentials represents a potential security risk. The Local Organising Committee (LOC) takes this issue very seriously and expects all accredited media professionals to do the same. In case of lost or stolen credentials, please proceed as follows: Stolen Media Credentials If credentials are stolen, the following steps should be taken: Inform the police and complete a police report. Deliver the police report to the accreditation centre manager. Lost Credentials If credentials are lost, the following steps should be taken: Inform the accreditation department (media-accreditation@fifa.org) Each request for credentials to be reprinted will be treated separately. The decision to reprint or not shall be taken after consultation between the media accreditation department and the accreditation centre manager. The accreditation department of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) will cancel the registration number of the lost or stolen credentials in the accreditation system to prevent misuse. Replacing a lost or stolen credential will require the payment of a processing fee of USD 200 per credential. Changes to Accreditation In the case of any change to the applicant's information (such as a new passport number) or if the applicant is unable to attend the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ and will be replaced by a colleague from within the same news organisation, an alteration request must be submitted directly and exclusively to media-accreditation@fifa.org International media media-accreditation@fifa.org Brazilian Media credenciamento.imprensa@brasil2014.com.br

  17. 17. Media Procedures 11 Access to the different media areas is restricted to accredited journalists holding a valid match specific SAD – Supplementary Access Device – such as a seat ticket for the media tribune or an SAD for the press conference or mixed zone. Media tribune The list confirming ticket allocations is available on the FIFA Media Channel. Match tickets (written press) are distributed in the Stadium Media Centre (SMC) the day before the game from 16:00 and on match day until 90 minutes before kick-off. Non-collected tickets will be distributed to the media registered on the waiting list. The waiting list is compiled in the match stadium only (not on-line), starting at the same time as ticket distribution. The waiting list will be handled on a priority and not a first come, first served basis. Check the FIFA Media Channel for further details. The distribution of the tickets for a possible waiting list will begin 60 minutes before kick-off. Tickets will only be distributed on a match-by-match basis. The allocation of the tickets for a game is determined by different criteria (in order): media of the two playing teams, media of the host country, media of the other teams in the group, media of the other participating teams, rest of the media. And for each country there are some priorities related to each media organisation (in order): major national news agencies, national daily newspapers, football magazines, national Sunday/weekly newspapers, football websites, football specialist freelancers, sports websites, general websites, multi-sports magazines, general interest magazines. Media representatives holding a confirmed allocation for a particular match, but who do not collect their ticket without having informed the Media Office (through the Media Channel) will receive a warning on the first occasion. In case of a new infringement, the journalist will no longer be entitled to further match tickets. The media tribune will be equipped with TV monitors, power and free internet access (cabled and WiFi). A set number of photographer seats have been allocated in the tribunes. Tribune photographers must show a valid media ticket to gain access to the media tribune. They also must wear their bib in order to be identified as a professional photographer. The photographer tickets have to be picked up at the photo distribution desk in the SMC on match day. In case a waiting list is implemented also for the photo tribune positions, this will follow the same procedure as for written press above. Please note that the ticketing system for Media Rights Licensees is different from written press and the procedures above are not applicable. Capacity From 300 seats with desk up to 1,000 seats with desk Varying number of seats without desk depending on stadium 50-100 photographer media tribune positions 150 – 250 pitch photographer positions Commentary positions and observer seats for the Media Rights Licensees
  18. 18. Media Procedures 12 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL™ – MEDIA GUIDE Press Conferences A press conference will be held after each match at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™. The coaches and the “FIFA Man of the Match” are required to attend this conference. Members of the media will only be granted access to the press conference room if they are in possession of an accreditation and a valid SAD. The allocation of SADs are made on a match-by-match basis by the FIFA Media Officers and distributed in the SMC (same schedule as for the match tickets). The press conference (approx. 15 minutes after the final whistle) will be simultaneous and remote translated into English and Portuguese and the languages of the teams playing. Photographers are not allowed in the press conference room. In addition there will be a Daily Media Briefing by FIFA and the Local Organising Committee every day from 12 June until 13 July at 10:30. This briefing will take place in the press conference rooms of the stadium in São Paulo (12-13 June) or Maracana (14 June-13 July). Please find further information (including special topics, guests, additional press conferences) on the FIFA Media Channel. All official press conferences and briefings will be streamed live on FIFA Media Channel. Mixed Zone In this area, media representatives may conduct brief interviews with individual players and coaches as the teams leave the stadium after the match. One part will be reserved for print and radio journalists, another for TV reporters and ENG crews. Access to the mixed zone will only be granted on presentation of a valid SAD (same distribution as for the match ticket). FIFA Digital editors will also collect statements in the mixed zone and publish them on FIFA.com. Photographers are not permitted in the mixed zone. Parking Because of the limitation of the space areas media parking will be reserved in priority to photographers who carry heavy equipment. There will be 150 parking spaces for each game. The media parking will be activated on match day. All other days parking access should not be restricted. Use of the media parking requires a media parking pass. Approved passes may be collected from the information desk in the SMC according to the confirmed list, which will be published on the Media Channel. A limited number of parking passes for other stadiums are available in each SMC, for media travelling from one venue to the other to cover matches on consecutive days. Media representatives not allocated a parking permit should use public transport and/or the free media shuttle service (timetable displayed in SMCs or Media Channel).
  19. 19. Media Procedures 13 Training Sessions and Match day -1 activities There are two types of team training sessions: official sessions at the match stadium which will take place at MD-1 and regular team sessions which will take place at the Team Base Camp or in some cases in the venue specific training site, VSTS, when the teams arrive in the venue on MD-2. The regular team sessions are under the responsibility of the Team Media Officer. The sessions at the match stadium will be under the responsibility of FIFA and OC media officers. All sessions (date, place, time) will be announced on the Media Channel. Official training sessions will be open at least for the first 15 minutes (which could be extended upon the team’s request). The decision is taken by the teams and will be announced 24 hours prior to the session. In case of cancellation the same will apply. All these sessions are open to all accredited media. The sessions are followed by a press conference with the presence of the Head Coach and at least one key player. In some occasions the press conference could precede the training. Some sessions could be followed by a mixed zone activity. To access the press conferences (and mixed zone if there is one) a SAD will be needed if there is a high demand (one specific SAD for each team press conference). The distribution will be in the SMC on the day (and at the Broadcast Compound for TV and radio rights licensees). In this case all information would be announced in due time on the Media Channel. For the training sessions the following guidelines will be applied: photographers (with bib), NRH (with bib and sticker on the camera) and Media Rights Licensee TV crews (with bib) will work as on match day behind the goal lines and on the opposite touch line (no exceptions). Interviews are not permitted and no media can stay on the bench side or at the team entrance. All press, radio and TV reporters will have to work from the Media Tribune (no exceptions). Photographers The photographers must first pick up their accreditation badge to get access to the SMC. They will then receive a photo bib in the SMC they have declared on the specific form filled on the Media Channel. They must wear their bib once they enter the stadium. Photographers working on the pitch will require for each match a pitch ticket with a seat number to be inserted in the specific pocket of the bib. Only the bib together with the pitch ticket will provide photographers with access to the dedicated pitch area. The pitch tickets must be picked up on match day at a specific desk of the SMC. They will be distributed starting 3,5 hours before kick-off. Photographers will be divided into different priority groups and have the opportunity to choose position according to this priority. More details regarding the process will be available in the FIFA Media Channel. A waiting list of photographers will be assembled for those matches which are over-subscribed, on the basis of priority and not on the basis of first come, first served. Photographers from this waiting-list will be issued tickets as from 60 minutes before kick-off. This applies also for any potential waiting lists for tribune positions.
  20. 20. Media Procedures 14 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL™ – MEDIA GUIDE The pitchside will be accessible 2 hours before kick-off right after the photographers briefing which will take place -2.15 hours. Photographers have to enter the pitch through a specific entrance which is clearly marked. For team pictures before the match they have to follow the advice of the FIFA Media Officers (FMOs) and Venue Press Officers (VPOs) and have to take their seat immediately after both teams have left their photo position to line up for the match. Photographers on pitch level will have access to internet (cabled and WiFi). It is strictly forbidden to walk on the field of play. Photographers Guidelines Each photographer accredited to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ will be is- sued with a PHO accreditation badge and an orange photographer’s bib, both of which are valid for the entire tournament. The bib must be worn, visibly, at all times (even at training sessions on any site). 1. At each match, photographers will be selected to work on either the field or in the tribune. In some matches, the number of requests could exceed the number of places available, and some requests must be rejected. Thus to work at any particular match, a photographer requires three items: accreditation badge, bib and ticket. 2. Each photographer will have a numbered seat which needs to be kept at all times during the match. 3. Photographers may only work in the zones reserved for them (and not in the zones reserved for television cameras), unless expressly permitted by officials. 4. In all stadiums photographers may also work on the far touch-line facing the main TV camera. 5. Photographers will not be allowed to work from the touch-line on the side of the team benches, apart from the FIFA photographers (wearing a red bib). 6. Photographers may never work in front of the advertising boards and must not obstruct these boards in any way at any time. 7. Photographers must allow players sufficient room to take corner-kicks, as directed by the referee or other FIFA officials. 8. Once the match has begun, photographers should not move from their dedicated seat. 9. Photographers may move to the other end of the pitch for penalty shoot-outs, as instructed by officials. 10. Flash photography during the game is not permitted. Monopods are permitted, but not tripods. 11. Photographers may set up remote-control cameras in a designated area between the goal-net and the advertising boards, but in such a way as not to interfere with either. The equipment may not exceed the total height of 25 cm. The final decision on the placement of any remote-control cameras shall be with the referee. Remote-control cameras may not be services during the match, but only at half-time.
  21. 21. Media Procedures 15 12. Approximately 15 minutes before each match and as instructed by offi- cials, field photographers may come to the centre of the touch-line where the teams will line-up for the national anthems and team photos. The teams and referees will stand at a distance of approximately 10 metres from the touch-line. After the national anthems, the teams shake hands and pose for team group pictures at the same distance. This is followed by the toss of coin. 13. Immediately after the coin toss, photographers shall disperse to their respective working positions and not stop to take pictures of the team officials or players on the benches. 14. At the end of each half, photographers shall remain behind their respective goal-line until all players have exited from the field. 15. A certain number of seats have been allocated for photographers in the media tribune at each match. Photographers selected to work in this area will each receive a ticket with a seat number, which they are to occupy. They may go to their allocated seats at any time they choose. They shall remain seated throughout the match. 16. Accredited photographers are only permitted to work with still cameras. There will be no exception. Not respecting these regulations breaks the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ Terms & Conditions signed by each accredited media and may lead to sanctions. 17. At no time – either before, during or after any match – may photo- graphers enter the field of play for any reason. Neither may they enter the dressing-rooms at any time, even if invited to do so by players or team officials. Failure to respect this rule may lead to withdrawal of the photo- grapher’s accreditation for the remainder of the competition. 18. In the event that a photographer’s bib is lost or stolen, it will only be replaced upon production of a police report and a USD 200 fee. Media Rights Licensees Please note that the entire SAD system for Media Rights Licensees is different. MRLs are requested to contact HBS for access to commentary positions, observer seats, press conferences, mixed zones and parking. Non-Rights Holders On match days, accredited Non-Rights Holders (NRH) will not have access to the stadium. NRH will receive bibs and specific camera stickers from the FIFA Media Officers in each of the venues. On non-match days, NRH must wear their accreditation badge (and bib for those having access to the pitch). NRH can access all training sessions (except those behind closed doors) and they can also access the Match Day -1 training sessions and press conferences but subject to space availability. In this case they would have to pick up a press conference SAD in the SMC. The same rule applies for potential Match Day -1 mixed zone activities.
  22. 22. Media Procedures Stadium Media Centres (SMC) 16 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL™ – MEDIA GUIDE Each of the 12 FIFA World Cup™ venues features a Stadium Media Centre, which provides a work area and other services and facilities, such as a cafeteria and an ATM machine, for members of the press. The media facilities at each stadium also include a press conference room and a mixed zone, as well as a media tribune. Opening times – all stadiums except Rio de Janeiro Non Match days during tournament from 9:00 to 18:00 Match days - 1 from 9:00 to 23:00 Match days during tournament from 8:00 to final whistle Matchday at stadium from 9:00 to 4 hours after final whistle Closing day from 9:00 to 12:00 (midday) IBC / HQ (daily) from 9:00 am to 18:00 Opening times – Rio de Janeiro Daily (except final and match 11) from 9:00 to 24:00 (midnight) Match 11 (ARG vs BIH) from 9:00 to 4 hours after final whistle Final from 9:00 to 02:00 (following day) Closing day from 9:00 to 16:00 Opening and closing dates City Stadium Opening Date Closing Date Belo Horizonte Estadio Mineirao 09 June 09 July Brasilia Estadio Nacional 10 June 13 July Cuiaba Arena Pantanal 08 June 25 June Curitiba Arena da Baixada 11 June 27 June Fortaleza Estadio Castelao 09 June 05 July Manaus Arena Amazonia 09 June 26 June Natal Estadio das Dunas 08 June 25 June Porto Alegre Estadio Beira-Rio 10 June 01 July Recife Arena Pernambuco 09 June 30 June Rio Janeiro Estadio Maracana 06 June 14 July Salvador Arena Fonte Nova 08 June 06 July Sao Paulo Arena de Sao Paulo 06 June 10 July

On matchdays access to the media parking area at each stadium will be restricted to vehicles with a Parking Pass properly affixed to the front windscreen (upper right corner, passenger side).
  24. 24. Media Procedures 18 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL™ – MEDIA GUIDE On non-matchdays the media parking area can be accessed by any vehicle manned by an individidual in possession of valid media accreditation, until such time as the capacity of the parking area is reached (entry based on order of arrival). The exception is Curitiba, where no parking will be available on non-matchdays. At this venue the streets around the stadium can be used for parking, subject always to existing traffic laws. Media parking areas will be in place throughout the operating periods of the Stadium Media Centres. Media parking areas will open 30 minutes before the Stadium Media Centres open and close one hour after they close. Media whose Parking Pass requests are approved should collect these from a Media Centre in advance. Parking Passes are not transferable. The use of a Parking Pass by anyone other than the person to whom it was awarded is considered a serious offence. There are two types of Parking Passes: one for cars and one for vans (vans not available in Curitiba). Important notes: On non-matchdays in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo the media will be able to use parking area E2 on an exceptional basis. A map showing each parking area and access routes will be distributed together with each Parking Pass. Catering services All media centres will provide a cafeteria for the exclusive use of accredited media. This will function during the opening hours of the media centre, and will offer water and non-alcoholic drinks, snacks, sandwiches, a lunch buffet on the days before matchdays and on matchdays themselves.

  68. 68. TV Information 62 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP BRAZIL™ – MEDIA GUIDE Broadcasting to the world The global broadcaster community is looking forward to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, and as such great preparation has gone into ensuring that a world class product is delivered across the globe, with close to 3,000 professionals will be involved in the multilateral production and services efforts. We are also getting ready to welcome the largest broadcast community to Brazil, with well over 10,000 accredited personnel from media rights licensees. FIFA's long standing TV service provider HBS will again act as Host Broadcaster for this event, ensuring production and delivery of an international TV signal at the highest standard. All 64 matches will be produced in High Definition standard 16/9 with the standard multilateral 29-camera plan implemented at the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ being upgraded to a 34-camera plan. Broadcasters in all territories hold the broadcast rights for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, giving them the option of broadcasting full matches live and/or delayed, as well as show highlights clips from all 64 matches right after the final whistle. As always, there will be a large production planned for this event, with 3 games produced in 4K and more in 8K, as well as a comprehensive multimedia content package which has been developed for the fans around the world, where we expect a great take up of these services with large amounts of fan interaction via social media. FIFA will work closely with a number of providers – including HBS, DeltaTre and the European Broadcasting Union – to ensure the delivery of a global broadcast signal with world-class production values. An experienced team of directors, cameramen, commentators and technicians will work in the stadia to provide coverage of each match. This will then be distributed to the homes of billions of viewers around the world via the International Broadcast Centre in the Riocentro Exhibition Complex located in Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro. A vast amount of additional programming around the matches will be produced, putting the participating teams, the 12 Host Cities and the beautiful Host Country of Brazil in the spotlight across the world, culminating in up to 5,000 hours of footage on the servers by the end of the event. Expectations are high that the audience figures from the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ can be topped by the time the 2014 champion is crowned in Rio de Janeiro on the 13th of July!
