Here we offer media professionals all the information they need to access events organised by the club and facilitate contact with RCD Espanyol staff. We remind you that access to media events is reserved for media professionals duly accredited by the club.

Accreditation for press conferences and training sessions (First team)

As a general rule, all professionals who cover the first team receive, through our usual channels, the planning schedule for training sessions, press conferences and activities related to the team. All these media professionals who already appear in our databases will be able to access this schedule without the need for physical accreditation to participate, although, as a general rule, they will be asked to confirm their attendance.

Media professionals who do not cover daily activity, but who sporadically need to cover a specific aspect (press conferences, interviews, reports...) should contact this department at (acreditacions@rcdespanyol.com) providing all the details of their media and those of the person or persons who wish to be accredited (full name, ID or passport and function in the company).

Our department will respond and inform regarding how, when and where they can access our facilities.

The Communications Department at RCD Espanyol will inform, sufficiently in advance, if there is to be a press conference after the training session and will communicate this or any other club event in which the media may be interested.

The RCD Espanyol coach appears one or two days before each official match, depending on the schedule for that week. This will also be communicated well in advance.

First team training sessions are generally held behind closed doors, except in sessions prior to official matches, in which images will be allowed from the first 15 minutes, exclusively for the media. In the event of a fully open session being held, this will be communicated through our website and other usual channels. 

Accreditations for official first team matches

Media (print media, television, photographers, websites and radio) that wish to request accreditation for LaLiga matches played at the RCDE Stadium must do so through the LaLiga accreditation email address (acreditaciones@laliga.es).

Accreditation collection: Accreditations are collected on matchday at the Press Entrance of the RCDE Stadium (next to the P1 VIP car park) from 2 hours before the start of the match. 

Accreditations for Espanyol B and Femenino A games 

To attend Espanyol B and/or Femenino A games at the Ciudad Deportiva Dani Jarque, the media must request their accreditations by sending an email with the personal data of the journalists who are going to attend (full name, role, ID or passport) and data regarding the medium to acreditacions@rcdespanyol.com. Applications close two days before matchday.

Requests that arrive past the deadline will not be processed. Accreditations will be confirmed between 24 and 72 hours before the start of the match.

Sending a request does not guarantee accreditation. 

Accreditation collection: Accreditations are collected on matchday from the booth on the pedestrian entrance to the Ciudad Deportiva Dani Jarque. 

Requests for interviews or features

The media can request interviews with RCDE Espanyol players. To do this, an email should be sent to comunicacio@rcdespanyol.com with details of the request.
