Miami Marlins install Clear biometric technology at Marlins Park

April 20, 2016 - 

The Miami Marlins Park stadium has deployed Clear’s biometric technology, enabling Miami Marlins fans to soon bypass long security lines by scanning their fingerprint.

According to a statement by Clear, the new Marlins CLEAR Lane gets enrolled fans through security and to their seats in minutes. The one-time enrollment process only takes a few minutes and leverages CLEAR’s secure biometric platform. Once enrolled, fans just have to tap their finger at the gate, scan their ticket, and head on in to the game.

“Every facet of Marlins Park, from the sightlines, to the seating, to the concessions and retail was designed to maximize fans enjoyment of the game,” said Marlins EVP, Operations and Events, Claude Delorme. “That process continues with the introduction of Marlins CLEAR Lanes that will significantly reduce the time going through security and into the ballpark. Whether they’re meeting friends, collecting autographs, or watching batting practice, our season ticket holders and partial season ticket holders can rest assured they’ll have a secure – and fast – experience getting into the game.”

Current CLEAR members who are already using the service at the Miami HEAT/American Airlines Arena or at Miami International Airport can use the new Marlins CLEAR Lane immediately without re-enrolling.

Mayor Carlos Gimenez noted that Miami is the first major U.S. city where CLEAR’s futuristic biometric technology has been deployed at both of the city’s major sports venues and inside the airport. “CLEAR’s touch-and-go identification technology is a major step forward in helping people access public venues quickly and securely,” said Mayor Gimenez. “As an innovation hotbed, I’m not surprised to see Miami embrace this technology so quickly, and so broadly.”

CLEAR Lanes are being used at sports venues around the country, including the Marlins, HEAT, San Francisco Giants, New York Yankees, NYCFC and Colorado Rockies.

Last October, CLEAR announced that it has raised a $20 million equity financing round from a group of investors led by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc.
