Already have tickets to go to the SEC Championship? Better take a close look at them.

The Southeastern Conference is warning fans to watch out for counterfeit tickets. It says fake tickets are for sale online.

Tickets for the SEC Championship game at Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta are sold out. So, Auburn and Georgia fans are scouring the Internet to find tickets.

If you have phony tickets, you won’t make it inside the stadium. The SEC says counterfeit ticket holders will be turned away.

The SEC advises fans to look for the authentic SEC holographic foil on the back of tickets. Embedded in the foil are the words “Southeastern Conference.” The SEC logos should appear and disappear when rotating the ticket.

Also, the look for laminated white lettering and blue panels on the front. You can feel the lamination by rubbing your finger across the print.

The SEC and Mercedes-Benz Stadium will make available a “Ticket Validation Window” at the main box office. That window opens at 9 a.m. CT on game day. The Ticket Validation Window is the only way to completely and accurately ensure the authenticity of a ticket.

The SEC Football Championship Game between Auburn and Georgia kicks off Saturday at 3 p.m. Central Time at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
