“The safety and security of our teams, fans and event personnel are a priority in our preparation for SEC Championship Weekend,” said SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey. “Considering recent events, we ask our fans to be attentive to their surroundings and to be patient as we implement measures that may provide some inconvenience but ultimately offer an environment of safety for those attending the weekend’s events.”

Prohibited items include camera bags, fanny packs, diaper bags and any other type of bag that is bigger than the allowed small clutch bag size.

Bags that meet SEC guidelines:
