Clear provides baseball fans with biometric access control to AT&T Park


Clear announced it has partnered with the San Francisco Giants, and beginning May 1st, existing Clear members and Giants fans (with priority given to Giants Season Ticket Members) who sign up for Clear Fast Access will be able to enter AT&T Park through a designated lane at the Willie Mays Gate.

Clear’s biometric secure identity platform prescreens individuals, expediting the waiting process for fans to ensure faster entry into the park.

This partnership is particularly important in that it is one of Clear’s first expansions into other venues outside of airports.

“We strive to offer our fans the best experience in baseball which includes safety as a top priority,” said Jorge Costa, Giants senior vice president of ballpark operations. “Our partnership with Clear provides us with the opportunity to enhance that experience further with the use of state-of-the-art technology. Fast Access boosts our security capabilities and, at the same time, gives fans an easy way to save time and enjoy the ballpark.”

Enrollment in Fast Access is a two-minute process in which fans are required to provide their drivers license and biometrics in the form of a fingerprint.

Clear has posted a video that demonstrates how Fast Access works.

“Clear is proud to partner with the World Champion San Francisco Giants, leaders on and off the field, as we expand into a new vertical,” said Clear CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker. “Clear’s mission is to provide a secure and frictionless experience for our customers. As security becomes more important at sports venues, we look forward to using our proven technology to transform the fan experience.”

AT&T Park security personnel will continue to perform bag checks for those who use the Fast Access lane.

Previously reported, CLEAR will launch its biometric secure identity platform, which verify travelers’ identities through fingerprint and iris scans, for enrolled members at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport in April.
