SEC Shuts Down For School Year

The Southeastern Conference Tuesday announced that all regular season conference and non-conference competitions are cancelled for the remainder of the school year, including all remaining SEC championship events. All spring football games are cancelled and there will be no pro days conducted by SEC institutions. In a statement, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey said “This is a difficult day for all of us, and I am especially disappointed for our student-athletes. The health and well-being of our entire conference community is an ongoing priority for the SEC as we continue to monitor developments and information about the COVID-19 virus.”

Other athletics activities, including team and individual practices, meetings and other organized gatherings, whether required or voluntary, remain suspended through at least April 15th. For the SEC Softball Tournament and the SEC Baseball Tournament, automatic full ticket refunds will be made by March 31st to fans who purchased tickets from the SEC Office or an SEC university.
