Media accreditation for Lausanne 2020 is open until 3 November

The 3rd edition of the Winter Youth Olympic Games (YOG) will be held from 9 to 22 January 2020 with events taking place in the city of Lausanne, three cantons of Switzerland and a neighboring region in France. To accommodate the many requests received from the media, the accreditation will remain open until 3 November 2019, 23:59 CET (Central European Time).

Media wishing to cover the Winter Youth Olympic Games Lausanne 2020 are kindly invited to request their accreditation through the Media Registration Portal. Note that media organisations planning to register ten or more staff are advised to contact Lausanne 2020 Media Operations at to request access to a group registration system.

Please note that the official media accommodation in Lausanne and St. Moritz will be available for booking through the Lausanne 2020 Accommodation Platform until 31 October 2019, 23:59 CET only.

Media representatives whose applications have not been approved by 31 October or who chose to register after this date, will be responsible for securing their own accommodation.

We also invite all media to authorise their equipment operating on public and non-public radio frequencies for the use in Switzerland and at the YOG. Procedure and deadlines are explained in the Lausanne 2020 Radio Frequency Registration Manual.
