SEC warning of counterfeit tickets for Championship Game

Game is sold between Georgia and Auburn


ATLANTA – SEC officials are warning fans of counterfeit tickets for Saturday's SEC Championship Game that they say are being sold online.

The game between Georgia and Auburn at Mercedes-Benz Stadium is sold out. In a media release, the conference warned fans to "beware of possible counterfeit or stolen tickets. Any individual in possession of a counterfeit or stolen ticket will be denied access into the game."

Conference officials said that fans can look for the authentic SEC holographic foil on the back of the ticket which features the words "Southeastern Conference" and SEC circle logos that should appear and disappear when slowly rotating the ticket back and forth. Also,  the white lettering and all the blue panels on the front of the ticket are laminated, which is noticeable by rubbing a finger over those areas.

The SEC and Mercedes-Benz Stadium will make available a Ticket Validation Window at the main box office of the stadium beginning at 10 a.m. on the day of the game. The window is the only way to completely and accurately ensure the authenticity of a ticket.

The SEC Football Championship Game kicks off at 4 p.m. Eastern Time at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Saturday.
