SEC fans need to look out for counterfeit and stolen tickets on the secondary market


BIRMINGHAM, Al. -- Many fans of the Georgia and Auburn game at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium game are seeking tickets on the secondary market because tickets for the SEC Championship game are sold out.

However, the SEC encourages fans to use its Fan-to-Fan ticket marketplace when purchasing tickets on the secondary market.

Fans need to beware of possible counterfeit or stolen tickets, the Southeastern Conference says.

Fans who are in possession of a counterfeit or stolen ticket will not be allowed access into the game.

When purchasing tickets on the secondary market, look for important distinguishing features. Valid tickets will have an authentic SEC holographic foil strip on the back, and within the foil, SEC circle logos and letters of the words "Southeastern Conference" should appear and disappear when rotating the ticket back and forth. Additionally, the white lettering and the blue triangular panels on the front of the ticket are embossed and can be felt by rubbing a finger over those areas.

On the day of the game, a "Ticket Validation Window" will open at the main box office of Mercedes-Benz Stadium starting at 10 a.m. This is the only way to ensure the validity of a ticket.
