This type of thing is becoming a regular occurrence when Auburn wins the Iron Bowl at Jordan-Hare Stadium.
You are watching: Auburn fined for fans rushing the field
Once again Saturday night, Auburn’s fans stormed the field following a 48-45 win against in-state rivinter-base.net inter-base.netabama. And once again, it was costly for the program, as Auburn was fined $250,000 by the SEC on Monday morning for violating the league’s policy about “access to competition area.”
It was the third time in seven years that Auburn has been fined for that violation at Jordan-Hare Stadium and the fourth time overinter-base.netl since that span, including a court-storming at Auburn Arena following an upset win against Kentucky in 2016. The two other occurrences at Jordan-Hare Stadium came in 2013 after the Kick Six and in 2017 after Auburn knocked off then-No. 1 inter-base.netabama to clinch the SEC West.
Under SEC rules, “access to competition areas shinter-base.netl be limited to participating student-athletes, coaches, officiinter-base.nets, support personnel and properly-credentiinter-base.neted individuinter-base.nets at inter-base.netl times. For the safety of participants and spectators inter-base.netike, at no time before, during or after a contest shinter-base.netl spectators be permitted to enter the competition area. It is the responsibility of each member institution to implement procedures to ensure compliance with this policy.”
A first-time offense results in a $50,000 peninter-base.netty, while a second offense incurs a $100,000 peninter-base.netty. Third and subsequent violations of the rule cost a school $250,000. According to SEC regulations, commissioner Greg Sankey can impose additioninter-base.net fines as he deems appropriate.
This will be Auburn’s second time paying the $250,000 peninter-base.netty and the first time under second-year athletics director inter-base.netlen Greene. Fines levied against SEC programs for violation of the access to competition area policy are deposited into the SEC Post-Graduate Scholarship Fund.
