Biometric identity company Clear has added to its portfolio of US venue partners by agreeing deals with three Major League Baseball (MLB) clubs.

New stadia added to the Clear network for the 2019 MLB season are Globe Life Park, home to the Texas Rangers; Target Field, home to the Minnesota Twins; and Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home to the Baltimore Orioles.

The deals, which come on the back of a recent agreement with Madison Square Garden, mean Clear’s identity platform is now used by 18 MLB, National Basketball Association (NBA), National Football League (NFL), and Major League Soccer (MLS) teams.

Building off last season’s successful pilot of biometric ticketing with the New York Mets, MLB, and Tickets.com, fans attending yesterday’s (Thursday’s) opening day at Citi Field (pictured) in New York were able to enter the ballpark with the tap of a finger, instead of presenting a paper or mobile ticket.
