Clear biometric kiosks launched at Progressive Field for frictionless fan access

 

Major League Baseball’s Cleveland Indians announced today that the CLEAR biometric identity membership platform is now available for fans to verify their identity for frictionless access to home games at Progressive Field. CLEAR Lanes will also be available at Progressive Field during the 2019 All-Star Week.

“We’re excited to partner with the Indians and look forward to welcoming CLEAR members, enrolling new fans and enhancing their visit to the ballpark all season long,” said CLEAR’s Head of Sports Ed O’Brien. “CLEAR will make getting into Progressive Field during home games and the Midsummer Classic fast and easy so fans don’t miss a minute of the action.”

CLEAR members can accelerate their entry into the facility through a dedicated biometric security lane at the E. 9th Street Patio Gate where, after the touch of a finger and a bag check, they can enter the facility. Non-members will be able to sign up for free on the spot.

The biometric identity platform is available in more than 40 airports and sports stadiums across the United States and in select cities can be used to buy food and drinks and prove legal age for alcohol purchases. There are more than three million CLEAR members in the United States.

In January CLEAR announced a new round of financing which will be used to accelerate the continued expansion of CLEAR’s platform and its airport and stadium network into new verticals.

CLEAR is certified as Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
