NBA Hopes to be at Full Capacity Next Season
The NBA expects to be at full capacity next season thanks to a new multiyear leaguewide partnership with Clear, as first reported by ESPN.
Clear is a biometric screening company known for its expedited security process at hundreds of airports worldwide.
The San Antonio Spurs, Orlando magic, and Atlanta Hawks are the only teams currently using Clear’s health pass program, which includes a combination of health surveys and secure linking to COVID-19 lab results and vaccination records.
The partnership makes Clear’s COVID-19 health screening technology available to all 30 NBA teams in their NBA arenas and hopes to get more fans safely in attendance.
More than two-thirds of NBA teams are allowing a limited number of fans currently.
This is Clear’s first leaguewide partnership with a professional sports league, but the company has been working with teams in the MLS, MLB, NHL, and NFL.
