2013-14 Canadian/Ontario Hockey League Media and Photo Accreditation Applications

CHL Passes are issued only to media that provide regular daily coverage of a team at home and who travel on the road and are intended strictly for this use.  

In an effort to effectively control the number of league passes distributed, greater emphasis will be placed on team issued passes and game day credentials requested by many online-only media outlets.

Team specific passes will be issued for the season or on a game-by-game basis by the Kitchener Rangers at their discretion to visiting media, and/or local media that regularly cover home games only.  Kitchener Rangers Policies and Applications for admittance can be viewed and downloaded above.

CHL Photo credentials are required for photographers and camera operators in all CHL arenas. The CHL Photo Policy is outlined in the attached Photo accreditation application form and a pass shall only be issued when the waiver portion of the form has been submitted.

Please note that all submitted forms are subject to the approval of the Canadian Hockey League.
