Lobstah Roll has 4 tiers of media access.
1. Team Photographer: Every team is allowed (1) team photographer or videographer; these credentials may not be shared or transferred. Team photographers gain priority access to photographer boxes (center track and trackside) during bouts where their team is participating. Access to the photographer resources such as the backroom is TBD based upon space. The team may decide if they wish to use one of their allocated passes to provide this photographer a ticket; otherwise they will be expected to purchase a ticket.
2. Media: Lobstah Roll will issue media credentials at its sole discretion, with a preference toward staff reporters/photographers and/or freelance journalists/photographers on assignment to cover the Event(s) for an established print or broadcast media outlet. If you are a staff reporter or a freelance journalist on assignment, you must provide us with written verification (from the media outlet) of the assignment to cover the Event(s). Website-only journalists may be granted media credentials provided that: 1) the website has a demonstrated record of original roller derby news content; 2) the website’s staff writes an overwhelming percentage of that website’s material; and/or 3) the website can provide certifiable visitor traffic statistics on the credential request form for review. A media credentials badge does not guarantee you unrestricted access to all areas. Approval of credentials does not provide you access; you are not guaranteed “comped” admission to the Event. “Comped” admission is at the discretion of the Lobstah Roll tournament staff.
