SEC Football Championship Game
The 2016 SEC Football Championship Game will be held at the Georgia Dome on December 3rd in Atlanta.
It’s very hard to get tickets to the game, but the SEC offers fans a chance to get on the waiting list for the opportunity to buy tickets in case there are extras.
Sign up for this year’s SEC Football Championship Game Waiting List. The waiting list opens every year on September 1 and closes December 31.
2016 marks the final year for the SEC Championship Game to be played at the Georgia Dome. In 2017, the SEC Championship Game moves to the brand new Falcons Stadium in Atlanta.
The SEC Football Champion gets the automatic bid to play in the Sugar Bowl at the Superdome in New Orleans.
If the SEC Football Champion is selected to play in a College Football Semifinal Playoff Game in a year that it is not played in New Orleans, the Sugar Bowl selects the SEC runner-up.
The College Football Playoff Games decide who will play for the College Football National Championship. The College Football Playoff Games are held at alternating New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day Bowl Games.
