The Southeastern Conference announced that they will hold their first ever virtual media days ahead of the 2020 season.
The 2020 WNBA Draft was one of the first big off-season events to be conducted virtually due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Soon after, the NFL Draft followed among other events.
Despite some sports resuming without crowds, the SEC is still being cautious moving forward. The SEC media days that were originally to be held from July 13-16 are now going to be conducted virtually.
The event will include SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey’s annual “State of the SEC” address, while also including discussions with the head coach of each team in the conference along with selected student-athletes.
The dates of the virtual media days are TBD, but the event is expected to be aired on the SEC Network.
