These times are changing, as the SEC Media Days are on the move.
The preseason media event, which traditionally had been held in Hoover, Ala., will now take place in Atlanta. The event will be held from July 16-19 at the College Football Hall of Fame.
“SEC Football Media Days is a signature event for our conference and we are pleased the city of Atlanta will host this kickoff to the 2018 college football season,” SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said in a release. “SEC Football Media Days is now added to Atlanta’s inventory of great events, which includes the annual SEC Football Championship Game and this season’s College Football Playoff Championship Game. We are looking forward to building an exciting week next July to feature our student-athletes and coaches.”
The event will be held back in Hoover in 2019 and will move around to future locations, with Hoover serving as a periodic site.
The 2018 event will be the first time that the event is held outside of Birmingham since 1985.
