Any press agency or company operating in the media sector may receive a maximum of two passes; this limit may be reduced at the discretion of the Event Promoter in view of the reception capacity of the space intended for the tournament. At their discretion, the Event Promoter may release a number of passes greater than those provided for in the first sentence of this paragraph in the case of personnel involved in television filming.
