MUSIC CITY BOWL
This section is designed for accredited media members to apply for credentials and access content related to the game and the participating teams.
This year's bowl will take place on Wednesday, December 30, at Nissan Stadium. Kickoff is 3:00 p.m. CST on ESPN.
Online Media credentialing opens on Monday, November 30 and the deadline to apply is Wednesday, December 23 at 5 P.M. CST.
Final press box seating priority for each school's media contingent will be coordinated through each school's Sports Information Department. The Bowl's Media Operations staff will establish the seating priority for local and regional media not specifically assigned to either school.
Credentials are issued based on the applicant's primary reporting function.
Photographers and camera persons will be issued a Field Level credential. This credential will also allow access to the interview rooms following the game's conclusion. Full hospitality, game stats, and updates will be provided for all Field Level credential holders at the Hospitality Area located at field level on the northeast side. Field Level holders needing press box access will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
Newspaper, radio and television reporters and internet reporters will be issued a Press Box credential. This credential allows an individual access to the Press Box as well as the post-game news conference. Hospitality for Press Box credential holders will be in the Press Box only.
No credentials will be mailed. We will require an official photo ID (driver's license, media ID, etc.) before any credentials will be issued. Also, the same photo ID will be required, along with the appropriate credential, in order to gain access to Nissan Stadium before or during game day. Remember that all carry-in bags will be subject to search at Nissan Stadium.
