SIUE sponsors 16 varsity sports. The Sports Information department is responsible for distributing information on those sports as well as coaching staffs, student-athletes, and members of the athletic department.

The Sports Information Office is located in the Lukas Annex of the Vadalabene Center.

Game Services

Game notes will be supplied at all home games to accredited media representatives in the press box (men’s and women’s soccer, softball, baseball) or in the media room (volleyball, wrestling, men’s and women’s basketball). Access to the press box, the media room, or press row is reserved for media personnel with proper credentials.

During basketball games, stats are provided to broadcasters during media time-outs. Media sitting at press row will be provided with stats at halftime and with a final stats packet after the game in the media room. Refreshments will be provided prior to each basketball game in the media room. During all soccer games, halftime and final stats are available in the press box. At baseball and softball games, final stats are available in the press box.

Interviews

The best way to reach any SIUE coach or student-athlete is through the sports information office. Please contact the staff member that is responsible for that sport. Please allow at least one day to arrange interviews with players or coaches as we must take classroom and practice schedules into account.

SIUE coaches are available for post-game interviews. For basketball, both home and visiting coaches will be available in the media room adjacent to the gym. Coaches will be escorted to the media room after the game. Players may be brought to the media room upon request. For all other sports, please contact the assigned SIUE sports information staff member to arrange post-game interviews at the site. Post-game requests for visitors will vary at the teams’ discretion.

Credentials

Requests for working press and photography credentials for all home games must be made prior to game day with the SIUE Sports Information office. Please contact the staff member assigned to the specific sport for credential requests, questions, or information. Passes will be held for pick-up at Will Call.

Broadcasts

Permanent, analog phone lines are installed and available for use for visiting team broadcasts in the Vadabalene Center (basketball) and Cougar Field (softball). Wired internet also is available at Vadabalene Center, Cougar Field, and Korte Stadium (soccer). Wireless internet access is available at all athletics facilities. Please contact the appropriate sports information staff member to arrange any broadcasts.

Parking

Parking is free and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Directions to campus facilities are available on this website.
