SEC Urges Fan to Be Aware of Counterfeit Tickets for SEC Championship

2016_sec_25th_fb_4c-1Tickets for Saturday’s SEC Championship game in the Georgia Dome between Florida and Alabama are sold out, prompting many fans to seek tickets through the secondary market.

The Southeastern Conference reminds 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.

There are a few safety features to look for when purchasing tickets on the secondary market.  Fans are advised to look for the authentic SEC holographic foil located in the lettering on the bottom of the ticket.  Within the foil, letters of the words “Southeastern Conference” should appear and disappear when rotating the ticket back and forth.  Also the tickets are laminated hard plastic (not paper) and you can see through the top of the ticket above the players helmets.

The SEC and the Georgia Dome will make available a “Ticket Validation Window” at the main box office of the Georgia Dome beginning at 10 a.m. on the day of the game.  The authenticity of the ticket can be confirmed by a box office representative.  The Ticket Validation 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. ET at the Georgia Dome on Saturday.
