In order to formally request full-season media/photo credentials, please fill out the online form here. If you are a new credential applicant, or would like to change the photo used on last year’s credential, please email a recent head shot or other clear photograph of your face to Kyle Hanlin after completing the form. Photos will be printed on all full-season credentials.

If you do not have a specific name for the reporter or photographer who will be representing your outlet with a season pass, please wait until you know that name to apply for a full-season credential.

Requests for full-season passes must be received by Aug. 26. No full-season credential requests will be accepted after that date.

Full-season credentials will only be issued to members of the media who will spend a significant amount of time covering the team (more than half of the home games). Others can receive single-game credentials as requested by sports editors/sports directors/photo editors. Please remember that the Hurricanes press box is a working press box. Family members of the media are not allowed in the press box, and will never be issued any type of credential.

Full-season credentials will begin to be issued during training camp practices and at the PNC Arena media entrance prior to the Hurricanes’ preseason home opener on Sept. 21. If you have any questions, please contact Mike Sundheim or Kyle Hanlin.
