Madison Square Garden has named CLEAR an Official Partner of Madison Square Garden, to offers fans fast, easy access into Rangers and Knicks games, as well as concerts and special events at the World’s Most Famous Arena, making New York CLEAR’s largest market as measured by the number of locations available to travelers and fans.
“We are pleased to welcome CLEAR into the Madison Square Garden family,” said Ron Skotarczak, executive vice president, marketing partnerships, The Madison Square Garden Company.
“Like MSG, CLEAR is committed to enhancing the customer experience – and we look forward to providing CLEAR’s growing membership with unforgettable Garden memories.”
CLEAR members can expedite their entry into MSG through a dedicated lane where, after the touch of a finger, they enter MSG for a physical screening.
Instead of using traditional ID documents, CLEAR uses biometrics – your eyes and fingertips – to confirm it’s really you.
IrisID, the world’s most deployed iris recognition platform, and a 2018 Platinum ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award Winner for Best Biometric Recognition System, provides a fast, accurate and non-contact method of capturing fans’ biometrics and identifying people.
The company’s authentication systems are used worldwide for access control, time and attendance checks, national ID programs, border crossings, voter registration, and a number of other applications.

CLEAR Ambassadors are available to assist fans with a fast, one-time enrollment process that combines a person’s identification and biometrics into a single CLEAR ID.
“Launching at MSG represents a major milestone for CLEAR, and we look forward to making our members’ experience there more efficient, easier and more predictable so they don’t miss out on what they came to see,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman Becker.
“By adding The Garden to our growing New York City ecosystem, CLEAR members can now enjoy frictionless experiences at three iconic sports and entertainment venues and three key local-area airports with one biometric ID.”
In addition to Madison Square Garden, CLEAR members can immediately use their biometrics for frictionless experiences at New York’s Yankee Stadium, Citi Field, JFK, LGA and HPN airports, and any of the more than 40 other locations across the country.
In select cities, members can also buy food and drinks and simultaneously prove they are of legal age for alcohol purchases and enter baseball stadiums without having to show a paper or mobile ticket.
