SEC Title Game In Atlanta Through 2015
"The SEC Football Championship Game has become one of the season's premiere events," said Slive. "The Georgia Dome and the Georgia World Congress Center is a fitting host for our event. Their operations staff and leadership have been tremendous to work with and we look forward to continuing the relationship."
The SEC Football Championship Game continues to be one of the most popular sporting events in the nation. The game has been sold out every year but once (1995) since the first game was played at the Georgia Dome in 1994. Last year's SEC Football Championship Game pitting Alabama against Florida drew 75,892 fans – the largest crowd ever to witness a sporting event in the Georgia Dome.
"The city of Atlanta has also served us well in the past," added Slive. "The quality of accommodations and the fact that it is a transportation hub for the Southeast makes it a great city to host the SEC Weekend of Champions."
The 2009 SEC Championship Game will be played on Dec. 5 with kickoff slated for 4 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by CBS Sports. The SEC Weekend of Champions begins with the Regions Bank SEC Coaches Luncheon on Friday, Dec. 4 and also includes the Dr Pepper SEC FanFare and the SEC Legends Dinner presented by AT&T.
