There are key distinguishing features to look for when purchasing tickets on the secondary market.
For example, valid tickets will have an authentic SEC holographic foil strip located on the back of the ticket.
Within the foil, SEC circle logos and the words "Southeastern Conference" should appear and disappear when slowly rotating the ticket back and forth. The white yard lines and the lettering on the front of the ticket are embossed and can be felt by rubbing a finger over those areas.
A Ticket Validation Window will be open at the main box office of Mercedes-Benz Stadium beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday.
The Ticket Validation Window is the only way to completely and accurately ensure the authenticity of a ticket that is not purchased at secticketoffice.com.
The SEC Championship kicks off at 4 p.m. on Dec.1 and gates open at 1:30 p.m.
