The SEC announced Wednesday night that fans are not allowed to attend the men’s basketball tournament this week in Nashville or any on-campus athletic events until at least March 30.

The decision comes in wake of the coronavirus pandemic and is complemented with the NCAA placing the same restrictions on its tournament the NBA suspending its season indefinitely.

The attendance restriction begins on March 12. It includes all athletic events on campus for Alabama and Auburn.

The SEC issued a statement from SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey:

This weekend’s Elevate the Stage event in Birmingham between the Alabama and Auburn gymnastic teams is also facing the same restrictions. Only family members are allowed to be in the stands.
