Press Box Services A complete box score and other perti- nent game facts will be distributed to members of the working media after the match. Match notes are provided prior to the match or can be obtained earlier upon request. A pre-match meal is served in the press box approxi- mately one hour prior to game time.
Photographers Accredited photographers will be al- lowed to shoot outside the field at the John Walker Soccer Complex. We do ask that no pictures be taken behind either team’s goals.
Practices All practices are open to the media and the public. Practices normally begin at 8 a.m. and end around 10 a.m. The normally scheduled “off day” is Mon- day. If a member of the media is inter- ested in attending practice, we ask that you please contact Matt Dowdy in the media relations office at least a day in advance.
Interviews Player and coaches are available for interviews Tuesday and Thursday af- ter practice. Because of class commit- ments, players must be finished with interviews by 10:40 a.m. If a media member is unable to attend practice, players and coaches may be available for phone interviews during the after- noon, depending on class schedules.
Post-Match Interviews Post-match interviews with coaches and players will occur around 10 min- utes after the conclusion of the match near the Red Raider bench. The Texas Tech locker room will remain closed following the end of the match.
