ATLANTA – The Atlanta Hawks today announced a new multi-year partnership with CLEAR (NYSE: YOU), the secure identity company, to provide all ticket holders with access to a free, dedicated VIP Lane at Gate 6 for expedited entry into all events at State Farm Arena, including Hawks home games.

“As we continue to elevate the experience for our fans and concertgoers, we are thrilled to partner with CLEAR and provide their millions of members another benefit that extends beyond the airport,” said Hawks and State Farm Arena Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Andrew Saltzman. “CLEAR will help us ensure our fans spend less time standing in line, giving them more time to cheer on the Hawks and enjoy all the amazing amenities that State Farm Arena has to offer.”

On Sunday, April 2nd, CLEAR will host a Member Appreciation Day featuring Hawks Entertainment teams and giveaways. Harry the Hawk, ATL Hawks Dancers and the Hawks Flight Crew will be on site for a special appearance at the CLEAR VIP Lane to create excitement and engage with fans.
