SEC Media Days go virtual, won’t be held in Atlanta

It’s official: the Southeastern Conference is going virtual for its 2020 football media days.

SEC Football Media Days were scheduled to be held in Atlanta, July 13-16, at the College Football Hall of Fame and Omni Atlanta Hotel.

But the conference decided virtual would be the best way to go because of the coronavirus pandemic. The dates and times for SEC Virtual Football Media Days have not been announced yet.

“Conducting football media days in a virtual format will provide us the opportunity to manage the event in a healthy manner as we continue to be impacted by COVID-19, and will provide flexibility for our programs to adjust their preparation for the 2020 football season according to the preseason calendar that is expected to be expanded due to the cancellation of the spring football season,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said. “We look forward to returning to our traditional media days format in 2021.”
