Once the application for accreditation is approved by Zenit’s security department, the journalist will receive an email notification indicating when and where they can collect their badge. This typically occurs before the first home match of the season, and the same process can be repeated before each subsequent match.
There is also a "second wave" of accreditations. Journalists who, for some reason, did not manage to submit their application before the start of the season can do so afterward and receive their badge approximately in December.
It is also possible to obtain accreditation for a specific individual match.
Application Submission Guidelines:
To have your application considered, you need to send an email to Maria Kapustina, the press officer of Zenit, at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, you should provide the journalist's full name and the media outlet they represent.
If necessary, be prepared to provide the contact details of the editor-in-chief, as well as examples of previous publications about Zenit that have been published in the respective media outlet.
