The deadline to apply for media accreditation for the World Athletics Championship is 6 May according to a statement issued by the World Athletics. The statement reads:
We would like to remind written press journalists and photographers wishing to cover the World Athletics Championships Oregon22, to be held from 15-24 July 2022, that they can register for media accreditation online.
In order to access the World Athletics online media accreditation system, written press journalists and photographers will need a specific access code. Should you wish to attend and do not have an access code, please contact your national athletics federation. Please note that media country quotas are applied for World Athletics Championships.

Please note that the media accommodation deadline has now passed, and that Comfort Inn & Suites Springfield, Comfort Suites Eugene, Quality Inn & Suites and Hampton Inn are now fully booked. There is still limited availability at Hamilton Hall.
If you require accommodation, please contact the Accommodation Team of the Local Organising Committee (
