The SEC Football Media Days has been in Hoover, AL since its inception in 1985 but the event could have a new home in the next few years.
Amongst the potential new host sites if the SEC moves the football media days is to Nashville, according to The Tennessean reporter Adam Sparks.
Nashville Sports Council president/CEO Scott Ramsey confirmed Wednesday that Nashville is on the short list of cities considered to host the annual event.
“Absolutely, we’re interested,” Ramsey said. “I know (moving SEC Football Media Days) is something they have been considering for several months now. There’s no definite decision whether they are going to move it, but there has been some preliminary checking around.
“We have been quietly scoping out some potential dates in the future that work.”
SEC commissioner Greg Sankey said on Tuesday that Nashville might be on “a pretty good list” of potential sites, which also includes Atlanta and Dallas. Sankey has stated on numerous occasions that he’s contemplated moving the event to different cities.
According to Ramsey, the most feasible option to host the SEC Football Media Days in Nashville is the Music City Center and that many new hotels will be ready in time for 2019.
Since 2001, the Wynfrey Hotel has been the host site, with their agreement renewed on an annual basis.
