BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – The Southeastern Conference will hold its first-ever virtual football media days in 2020, the Conference announced Wednesday.

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

“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,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey.  “We look forward to returning to our traditional media days format in 2021.”

The virtual event will feature Sankey’s annual “State of the SEC” address, as well as media sessions with the conference’s 14 head coaches and select student-athletes from each school.  The SEC is in planning with the SEC Network to provide wall-to-wall coverage of the virtual event.

The dates and times for SEC Virtual Football Media Days have not been announced at this time.
