Credential Request Policies/Procedures
Three media credentials are honored for admission to MSG this season: (1) Liberty 2013 season media pass; (2) Liberty 2013 single game pass (good for that specific game only), and (3) 2013 WNBA working media card. NO OTHER CREDENTIALS WILL BE HONORED. Credential requests must be made via e-mail to Stacey Escudero from the assigning editor. Requests for single game credentials must be submitted 36 hours prior to game time. Day-of-game requests will not be honored. Radio stations, magazines and weekly newspapers will be accommodated on a space-available basis. When applying for the first time, requests from magazines and weekly newspapers, radio and TV stations must be made on company letterhead and include copies of the publication (if applicable) from the assigning editor. Applying for credentials does not guarantee a confirmation. Those holding season media passes and WNBA season working media cards are required to contact the Communications Office to arrange/reserve seating 24 hours before game time. When working at MSG, it is requested that credentials be worn and displayed at all times.
