All press accreditation requests for all first-team, reserve or academy matches at The Valley will be processed using the Football League's DataCo system. Find out more about DataCo here.

The stadium has more than 100 press seats, each with an individual desk space, phone access and power point, along its purpose-built press gantry, which stretches the length of the upper tier of the west stand.
The gantry also has a series of ISDN points owned by radio stations, which allow them to broadcast crystal-clear live reports and commentary from The Valley.
The club's main television gantry is located at the top of the east stand, and camera crews can also be located at a series of other smaller gantries around the stadium, including the north-east corner and the south stand.
Photographers are permitted to take photos from behind the north and south goals.
Before and after the game, journalists have access to the club's media suite, which is located in the north-west corner of the stadium.
And following the final whistle, both managers will attend the post-match press conference in the club's media room, which can house around 100 journalists, including photographers and camera crews.
