New York Yankees install Clear biometric technology at Yankee Stadium

August 10, 2015 - 

The New York Yankees announced it has partnered with Clear to provide biometric fingerprint identity technology for an expedited-access entry points at Yankee Stadium.

This marks the third Major League stadium to introduce Clear’s biometric identity technology this season, following similar action by the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park and the Colorado Rockies’ home, Coors Field.

Fast Access lane users at Yankees Stadium will be able to enter through the dedicated lanes by using a biometric fingerprint scanner on a custom-built tablet to verify their identity.

Clear’s secure biometric identity platform is sanctioned by Major League Baseball and currently serves 12 airports in the United States, including Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Las Vegas (LAS), Miami (MIA), San Francisco (SFO) and Westchester, New York (HPN).

All ticketholders for the Yankees, NYCFC and other events held at Yankee Stadium who are registered by Clear will be able to use Fast Access lanes, which will allow faster entry to the building.

Fans are able to register for the free service by providing a valid driver’s license and undergoing a security-background check, at a tent located outside of Yankee Stadium’s Gate 4 on Yankees and NYCFC game days.

Fast Access-approved entry lanes will be located at Gate 2 (Jerome Avenue and E. 164th Street) for all ticketholders and the Suite Entrance (next to Gate 4 on E. 161st Street) for suite ticketholders. All existing Clear members will be able to use Fast Access lines immediately.

“Clear calls New York home, making us especially thrilled to partner with the New York Yankees to provide fans with a winning experience,” said Caryn Seidman-Becker, Clear’s CEO. “CLEAR uses innovative technology to delight our users, whether they are watching their beloved Yankees or traveling through one of our nation’s busiest airports. Everything we do has a common goal – to provide a frictionless customer experience.”

All bags brought into the stadium by Clear registrants will still be required to undergo screening by security personnel.
