SEC Schools Work To Improve Fan Experience

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- The Southeastern Conference says all 14 members have taken steps to improve the fan experience at league football stadiums.

Commissioner Mike Slive said Wednesday that SEC schools "have made it a priority to engage their fans in a way that will enhance their in-game enjoyment and satisfaction."

SEC athletic directors approved forming a working group in June 2012 to review attendance trends and recommend ways to improve fan experience.

The league says 57 of 100 games played at SEC venues in 2013, including the SEC championship game, were filled to capacity. Average attendance climbed more than a 1,000 to 75,674 last season.

A study showed that the areas of most concern to fans are availability of concessions and restroom conditions.

The changes include showing in-game highlights on stadium video boards.
