Photo, Video, and Audio Policies and Disclaimer

EDP Soccer appreciates your participation and encourages personal photography, videography and sharing your stories from our events. Thank you for your cooperation with these policies.


EDP Soccer College Showcase Events

EDP Soccer (EDP) often contracts official photography and/or videography service partner providers for showcase events. Therefore, no other professional photo or video recording/capturing service shall be permitted at the venues where these service providers are present as outlined and identified in official EDP event materials and communications. Only personal, non-commercial photography and video recording is permitted by participants if filming and capture does not interfere with gameplay and is conducted in a safe and non-disruptive manner as deemed acceptable by EDP Soccer. EDP Soccer reserves the right to limit, restrict, or stop video recording at its sole discretion at any time, before, during, or after an event. Coaches, club and team officials, as well as family, friends, and fans of players shall be permitted to photograph or videotape the games, for non-commercial purposes, provided that such person or persons do not interfere with EDP Soccer’s officially contracted photographer’s and videographer’s duties, do not use professional ‘elevated’ equipment (above 5ft), or in a location that is deemed as unsafe, undesirable, or distracting to the playing environment or venue. If, in the opinion of the EDP Tournament Director, such person or persons filming from 5ft or above and/or are inhibiting photographers and videographers from performing his or her duties, EDP shall require the person to stop all further capture/recording. No external structures (scaffolds, large tripods, etc.) will be permitted to be erected on site at any event venue without the prior approval by the EDP Tournament Director. If you would like to license, sell, or resell any content recorded or captured at EDP events, you must have prior approval from EDP Soccer. EDP Soccer Non-Showcase Events

Currently, EDP Soccer is not contracted with any photography or videography capturing service providers for non-showcase events but may do so at any time in the future. Therefore, personal, non-commercial photo and video capturing is permitted at any event venue, unless otherwise noted in event materials and communications. If you would like to erect photo or video recording equipment or structures (scaffolds, elevated tripods, etc.) at any event venue, you must have prior approval from the EDP Tournament Director. If you would like to license, sell, or resell any content recorded or captured at EDP events, you must have prior approval from EDP Soccer. All EDP Soccer Events

No drones are permitted at any EDP Soccer event or venue without prior approval by the EDP Tournament Director. EDP Soccer does not allow any third-party professional photography or videography capturing or editing services at their events without the prior approval of EDP Soccer. EDP Soccer does not allow the licensing, sale, or resale of any content recorded or captured at their events without the prior approval of the EDP Soccer.
