Tech Stack: Las Vegas Raiders, Miami Dolphins and more

Clear has been named an official fan experience and the official secure identity partner of the Las Vegas Raiders and Allegiant Stadium.

Over the next three years, Clear will work with the Raiders and Allegiant Stadium to develop and roll out a series of integrations to heighten the fan experience. Current Clear-powered experiences at Allegiant Stadium include entry lanes and advanced age verification for in-seat mobile ordering.

Fans can download the free Clear app, sign up and enter through the designated Clear entrance at Ford North Entry Lanes 49 and 50 for Raiders games and select concerts and events. Continuing the age verification deployment from last season, fans seated in the Modelo Cantina Club and Twitch Lounge can verify their age with Clear from their seat while placing a mobile order.

Elsewhere in the NFL, Hard Rock Cafe, which holds naming rights to the Miami Dolphins’ stadium, has partnered with mobile payment platform Cheq to provide fans with the chance to experience the latter’s app on Christmas Day.

Attendees of the Dolphins’ home game against the Green Bay Packers on December 25 are invited to transact using the Cheq app for mobile ordering or a Cheq express kiosk at select Cheq & Pepsi Food Zone locations. Fans will receive a text message with a gift for a redeemable ‘Messi Burger Champions Edition’ at Hard Rock Cafe locations.

Cheq, which is the mobile payments partner for the Dolphins, will launch in South Florida in January.

The NFL’s Los Angeles Chargers have partnered with conversational AI company MeetKai to create new immersive experiences for fans.
