BIRMINGHAM, AL (WSFA) -

The Southeastern Conference is reminding fans to be aware of possible counterfeit or stolen tickets for this weekend's SEC Championship matchup between the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide and the No. 15 Florida Gators.  

According to the SEC, the game, which is being played in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, is sold out, forcing fans to look for tickets through the secondary market. 

Any individual in possession of a counterfeit or stolen ticket will be denied access into the stadium.

According to the SEC, there are a few safety features to look for when buying tickets through the secondary market.

Fans are advised to look for the authentic SEC holographic foil located in the lettering on the bottom of the ticket. Within the foil, letters of the words "Southeastern Conference" should appear and disappear when rotating the ticket back and forth.

The tickets should also be laminated in hard plastic and you should be able to see through the top of the ticket above the player's helmet.

A ticket validation window will be made available at the main box office of the Georgia Dome beginning at 10 a.m. on the day of the game in order for the authenticity of the ticket to be confirmed by a box office representative.

Kickoff for the SEC Championship game between the Crimson Tide and Gators is set for 3 p.m. CT.
