Press

How the department works

The media play a vital role in the day-to-day life of our club. We offer you an insight into how the club's media operates and details about how to contact the department.

Training and press conferences

All of the Real Sociedad teams train at Zubieta. In terms of first-team training sessions, the press have free access providing the sessions are open to the public and accreditation is not required to attend these sessions. In the event that training isn't open to the public, access is granted once the session is over. The training schedule can be found on the club's official website, whilst those journalists who cover the Txuri-urdin are provided with regular updates on the schedule.

Real Sociedad holds press conferences with members of the first-team squad and the coach on a weekly basis in the media room at Zubieta, which is situated next to the José Luis Orbegozo pitch. Should you wish to attend one of the Real Sociedad Women or Sanse training sessions or any of the youth team sessions, we request that you to get in touch with the media department.

Interviews

One-to-one interviews with members of the Real Sociedad squad are to be requested as far as possible in advance, with requests to be submitted directly to the club's media department. Requests for interviews with members of the men's and women's first-team squads are ideally to be sent to prensa@realsociedad.eus or made directly to the head of the media department. We try to respond to requests as promptly as possible and reply to the media outlet that has submitted the requests.

Accreditation

For the purposes of both home and away fixtures, Real Sociedad will continue to issue press passes to members of the written press who submit a request to acreditaciones@realsociedad.eus.

The deadline for requests is 72 hours before the day of the game (League and Copa del Rey). In order to register, the form must include the journalist’s first and last name, their ID number and role within the organization they are applying from. Data provided by accredited press will be checked when accessing the facilities. As for digital media, applicants must comply with a series of requirements set out by the club in order to be allowed entry. Photographers, audiovisual and radio stations must submit their pass requests to either LaLiga or Mediapro, as appropriate.

Due to the remodeling process of Anoeta, the collection location will be determined for the home fixtures. Accreditations can be collected two hours before the game.
