The venue for this year’s Southeastern Conference Media Days was set for the College Football Hall of Fame and Omni Atlanta (Ga.) Hotel; however, the state continues to have growing cases of the Coronavirus.  

With health and safety being a priority, the league decided on June 10 to make the event virtual-only yet still have it from July 13-16.

Per an article via AL.com, not only will SEC fans have to get press conference and analysis virtually but the dates for the event have changed too. 

SEC Media Days won’t be from July 13-16 and a new schedule has not been announced.

One good thing has been the NCAA Division I Council approving the six-week preseason practice plan, which phase one of the model starts on July 13. We could see SEC Media Days pushed back to late July or even early August, as leaders within the conference are trying to reach the best possible solution. Going back to the press release from SEC commissioner Greg Sankey, he said the league is planning with SEC Network to provided “wall-to-wall coverage” throughout the virtual event.
