IOWA WRESTLING MEDIA NEED TO KNOW
Please take a few minutes to go over the information below in regard to Media Operations during the 2020-21 Iowa Wrestling season. We appreciate your patience and willingness to adapt this season.
There will be no media access to the tunnel or floor this season. Media in need of ADA assistance should contact SID Chris Brewer.
Credentials for Iowa’s home duals will be significantly reduced due to social distancing precautions. Outlets that have received credentials in the past may not be provided those same credentials in 2020-21.
Due to the limited number of media seats, credential requests will be reviewed on a dual-by-dual basis. Seats will be assigned.
If you are approved for a credential and for any reason are unable to attend the game, please notify SID Chris Brewer as soon as possible so we can assign your seat to another media member who is able to attend.
Credentials will be available for same-day pick up at the WEST ENTRANCE of Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Photo identification will be required on day of game pickup.
Photo and video opportunities will be limited. There will be no floor access in 2020-21. Credentialed photo/video will be required to shoot above the railing in the seating bowl. Iowa Athletic Communications will post action photos/video highlights on the Iowa Wrestling Information Page following each home game.
Members of the media are required to wear a face mask or face shield at all times while inside Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Media may enter the arena no earlier than 90 minutes prior to start time.
Media parking for the 2020-21 season will be located in Lot 75 (southwest of the arena across Hawkins Drive). NO PASS NECESSARY.
POSTGAME NEWS CONFERENCE
No media will be allowed to attend postgame news conferences in person in 2020-21. It is our intention to provide a video recording of postgame Zoom interviews with head coach Tom Brands and select Iowa wrestlers.
All Zoom information will be located on the Iowa Wrestling Media Information page.
WEEKLY NEWS CONFERENCES
There will be no in-person media interviews during the 2020-21 wrestling season. Zoom interviews with selected wrestlers will occur in advance of each competition.
Zoom information/links will be updated/posted on the Iowa Wrestling Media Information page and will also be distributed via email.
PRINTED MATERIALS / STATS
Notes and media guides will not be printed in 2020-21. A bout sheet will be printed and distributed at each home dual.
Live stats are available at TrackWrestling.com.
