Media: Information and registration

Dear media representatives,

we are pleased that you are interested in the European Artistic Gymnastics Championships Basel 2021 and that you want to report about the event. Due to the Covid19 pandemic, the European Artistic Gymnastics Championships will be staged with strict protective measures. These include, in particular, a strict mask obligation (FFP2 masks). Furthermore, accredited persons are obliged to present a negative test result which is not older than 72 hours when arriving at the site and they will have to do a rapid test (with costs) in order to enter the site.

We will not offer a physical mixed zone for media representatives. In order to protect the athletes, media representatives will be in contact with the athletes only virtually – this procedure is the same for many other sports events. Further information will be provided in due time before the start of the European Artistic Gymnastics Championships.

The accreditation phase has been opened and will end on April 6. Please register via European Gymnastics at the following link:  

Media representatives who come to Basel despite the restrictions are obliged to organize their stay via the official media hotel – otherwise the accreditation will be refused. Information about the hotel can also be found at the link above.

For questions concerning accreditation, please contact the Head of Media from European Gymnastics, Tina Gerets:
