Head Into Football Season Early at SEC Football Kickoff Summerfest

The inaugural SEC Football Kickoff Summerfest presented by Regions Bank will be held Sunday, July 15, in Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park, giving SEC football fans an opportunity to gain an early start on the 2018 football season, highlighted by a live broadcast by the SEC Network's traveling road show, SEC Nation. This first of its kind fan event is being held in conjunction with the SEC's annual football media days which is making its first stop in Atlanta at the nearby College Football Hall of Fame and Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center.

Fans attending SEC Summerfest will have an opportunity to engage with fellow SEC fans in a family-friendly game day environment anchored by the first SEC Nation broadcast of the 2018 football season. Other activities include live music, food trucks, interactives and much more.

 SEC Nation will feature SEC Network host Laura Rutledge, analysts Paul Finebaum and Marcus Spears, along with reporter Lauren Sisler. Regular SEC Nation analyst Tim Tebow is playing minor league baseball during the summer and will be unable to participate, but will rejoin the cast in the fall. Other ESPN/SEC Network analysts expected to be on hand include Gene Chizik, Greg McElroy, David Pollack and Jordan Rodgers.

SEC Football Kickoff Media Days presented by Regions Bank will be held Monday, July 16 through Thursday, July 19 at the College Football Hall of Fame and Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center. Coaches and players from all 14 SEC institutions will meet with more than 1,000 members of the media in the annual ceremonial kickoff to the football season.
