NBA Signs Deal For COVID Screening Technology; Plans on Full Capacity Games Next Season

by | Apr 8, 2021 | Sports

Basketball arenas packed shoulder to shoulder with fans feel like a thing of the past nowadays but according to a new report by ESPN, the NBA is expecting full capacity at games next season.

This week the NBA announced a partnership with biometric screening company CLEAR. Known for its airport security screening technology, CLEAR’s Health Pass technology will be available to all of the league’s 30 teams. The Health Pass connects the user’s health records, such as test results and soon vaccine information, and will help the NBA in admitting fans into arenas.

The technology is already being used by one-third of the NBA’s teams. The Orlando Magic were the first organization to partner with CLEAR, implementing the screening system in December.

In the meantime, for fans whose teams have yet to allow spectators this season – fear not! For the rest of the season, you can watch the game from home while enjoying some NBA Oreos (yes that’s a real thing).
