PMOA Minimum Standard
DISPLAY OF ACCREDITATION CARDS FOR THE PMOA
3.1.1 As a general rule, access to the PMOA will be restricted to only those individuals whose presence in that area is absolutely essential for operational purposes. This would invariably include Players, Match Officials, ICC Regional Security Manager, other ICC ACU staff and Player Support Personnel such as members of the team coaching staff, medical and physiotherapy staff, team statistician, kit/baggage man, team liaison officer, team media manager and team security manager.
3.1.2 In certain circumstances, PMOA accreditation may also need to be issued to other individuals who may need access to the PMOA from time to time for operational reasons, including, for example, BCCI officials and members of the venue’s security, maintenance or cleaning or catering staff. In respect of such individuals who require access on a regular basis through the IPL season, a special supplementary PMOA accreditation card may be authorized by the ICC Regional Security Manager and produced in accordance with the provisions set out in Article 2.2.2. In respect of individuals who need temporary access to the PMOA, temporary “visitor” accreditation may be issued by the ICC Regional Security Manager. Such temporary accreditation can only be provided by the ICC Regional Security Manager, who may impose such conditions on the accreditation (including for specific time periods or areas etc) as he/she deems appropriate in the circumstances.
3.1.3 For the avoidance of doubt, and except as described in Article 3.2, below, no individual, irrespective of their identity, job, role or responsibility, will be allowed to enter, or remain within, the PMOA without displaying an official accreditation card.
3.2 Players, Player Support Personnel and Match Officials:
3.2.1 All Players, Player Support Personnel and Match Officials must display their PMOA accreditation cards prior to their first entry into the PMOA on the day of an IPL Match.
3.2.2 Once they have complied with Article 3.2.1, all Players, Player Support Personnel and Match Officials do not need to continue to display or carry their PMOA accreditation cards so long as they remain at all times within any of the PMOA, the nets or practice area or field of play.
3.3 ‘Visitors’ to the PMOA:
3.3.1 All visitors must display their supplementary PMOA accreditation card or their PMOA temporary ‘visitor’ accreditation card (as relevant) whenever they enter or leave the PMOA from the moment that the stadium has commenced its access control for an IPL Match right through until the Match has been completed (i.e. the last ball has been bowled).
3.3.2 All temporary visitors must carry their supplementary PMOA accreditation card or their PMOA temporary ‘visitor’ accreditation card (as relevant) at all times whilst they remain within the PMOA.
