The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl adheres to relevant gameday guidelines of the NCAA. The bowl's media credentialing is an online request process located HERE
The volume of media credential requests often exceeds the space that we have for media in both the press box and on the sideline. Pregame bowl week activities (press conferences, practices, and special events) indicated on the media schedule are open to all working media (with or without a game credential). However, only officially credentialed working media will be admitted to the Little Caesars Bowl on gameday. These credentialed media must have their bowl media credential displayed in order to gain admission to the press box and sideline media areas at Ford Field on gameday.
The Little Caesars Pizza Bowl Media Relations Department considers working media to be writers, photographers, reporters, producer/directors, and/or broadcasters that have been specifically assigned to cover the bowl by a print, broadcast, or electronic media outlet. Typically, these outlets are expected to regularly generate a daily, weekly, or monthly journalistic product for public consumption. The LCPB Media Department reserves the right to determine the appropriateness of the media outlets request and to approve or deny any request for a media credential.
Sports-related media are given priority in the credential process, with participating teams' beat media being of particular concern. Local and national sports media, not associated with a participating team are also given preference. Most requests for a credential based upon a speculative assignment or for private commercial gain (not related to a recognized media outlet) will be denied.
The media hotel for the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl is the Doubletree Guest Suites Fort Shelby/Downtown Detroit. Media are responsible for their own room reservations.
