An accreditation system will be in place at the BUCS Championships. Accreditation will be used to ensure that only competitors have access to competition areas within a venue. For many sports, competitors will also need to produce certain sports specific documentation to obtain accreditation. Once an individual has received a pass it must be worn at all times.
IF ANY MEMBER OF A TEAM OR INDIVIDUAL SPORT DOES NOT PROVIDE THE RELEVANT DOCUMENTATION THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COMPETE AND WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO ENTER THE VENUES AS A SPECTATOR. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS MADE TO THIS RULE.
Accreditation will also allow competitors and team staff to enter all other venues free of charge in order to spectate in designated areas.
Please bear in mind that whilst every endeavour will be made to make accreditation a quick process, at key times it could be busy and therefore may take some time. It is advised that teams and individuals should allow adequate time to ensure all relevant people can pass through Accreditation in time for their matches/events. There will be no opportunity to circumvent this accreditation procedure.
NO ACCREDITATION, NO COMPETITION.
If an athlete or support staff loses his/her accreditation pass there will be a £5.00 charge for a replacement pass.
