Parking and Credential Pick-up: Free parking for the media will be available at the stadium in the East lot, directly in front of the main grandstand. You do not need a parking pass, because your name will be on a list as you enter. You will need to show a photo ID, preferably on a press card, to gain access to parking and to pick up your credential, however. You will pick up your credential at a table near the main public entrance at the north side of the stadium. PLEASE NOTE that credential pickup is in a new location.
Media Work Area: Follow the signs when you arrive at Icahn Stadium. The work area is at the top of the grandstand, behind the seating area overlooking the finish line. A few shared telephone lines will be available. PLEASE NOTE: The stadium is equipped with wireless internet access. Media working on deadline will have assigned seating, with others accommodated as space permits. In addition, there will be a small number of grandstand seats allocated for members of the working media who do not require a workspace. The mixed zone is located right beyond the finish line.
Post-Event Press Conferences: Most athletes will be available for interviews in the mixed zone only! Formal press conferences for the men’s 110-meter hurdles and men’s 100 meters will commence at the conclusion of the meet in the Dance Lecture Hall, at the far end of the hallway inside the stadium office area on the ground level. If additional press conferences become necessary during the meet, announcements will be made.
