Vaccination Requirements

  • All media visiting the Eagles facilities (including the NovaCare Complex and Lincoln Financial Field) must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, defined as two weeks after having received all doses in their primary series of COVID-19 vaccination. Acceptable vaccines currently include the following:  Pfizer-BioNTech (2 doses given 3–8 weeks apart); Moderna (2 doses given 4–8 weeks apart); and Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen (1 dose). All media must first confirm vaccination status via the DocuSign link provided by the Eagles Communications staff in order for their credential request to be considered. You will need to provide this information only once.
  • All media must review the Eagles COVID-19 screening questions prior to entering:
    • If any of the following apply to you, you cannot enter the facility:
      • You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 5 days;
    • You are feeling sick and/or are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, such as fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea or any other symptoms identified by the CDC, unless you have tested negative after experiencing such symptoms.
    • In addition, anyone exposed to COVID-19 must follow CDC guidance, including wearing a well-fitting mask for 10 days following the exposure.


Daily Credentialing Requests

  • Only pre-approved media can attend practice. To apply for a credential, please visit our credentialing system by clicking this link. You will be notified if your request has been accepted or denied. Media MUST sign up online for each practice they wish to attend.
  • Any reporter who has been approved for access but can no longer attend should notify a member of the communications staff as soon as possible.


Facility Access

  • Parking for all vehicles is available in the Naval Hospital Lot adjacent to the NovaCare Complex on Pattison Avenue. Once parked, reporters should proceed to the security gate and provide their name for their first day at the facility or show their credential, as applicable.
  • After entering through the security gate, proceed to the media house where a member of the communications staff will provide you a credential for access to practice and/or to confirm your credential for access.
  • During practice, media members are required to remain in the marked, designated areas, which will be at least 10 feet from the practice fields, throughout the duration of practice.
  • The Media House will be available for credentialed media, with priority given to those who are writing or transmitting images and video.


TV Station Access

  • With prior approval from the Eagles communications staff, TV stations will be permitted to record stand-ups or live shots from designated areas in the NovaCare Complex parking lot. Media who are granted access for this purpose will not (i) receive a credential, (ii) be permitted to leave their designated area in the parking lot, or (iii) be allowed to record any other footage or interact with players or staff members while on site.
  • Otherwise, photography and videography for all media is limited to the practice field during the specified shooting window only.


Practice Reporting Guidelines

  • Photography and videography will be limited to warmup and individual drills.
  • Media may report which players are practicing. Non-strategy and non-gameplan observations may be included in reporting.
  • More detailed information will be provided by the Eagles communications staff, but the following types of observations may not be reported in any fashion:
    • Specific information that could help an opponent prepare for playing the Eagles, such as references to specific plays run or game strategy.
    • Comments overheard between coaches, players and staff.
