UFC and CLEAR Partner for Safer Fan Experience at Gila River Arena in Glendale

Health Pass by CLEAR Providing Secure, Frictionless COVID-19 Health Screening

UFC, the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization, and CLEAR, today announced a partnership to utilize CLEAR’s Health Pass to more safely welcome fans to UFC® 263: ADESANYA vs. VETTORI 2 at Gila River Arena in Glendale, Ariz., this Saturday, June 12.

Health Pass is a free, mobile experience by CLEAR that ticket holders will be able to use to connect their identity with a securely linked, confidential COVID-19-related health questionnaire.  All ticket holders are required to complete this questionnaire in advance, creating a seamless and expedited entry into Gila River Arena for those who are issued a green notification on their Health Pass app. 

Ticket holders who receive a red notification will not be permitted entry and will be advised to seek medical guidance, as well as information on how to obtain a refund.

To ensure an expedited entry into the event, ticket holders are encouraged to download Health Pass in advance and complete the questionnaire before arriving at the arena.

Ticket holders who opt not to use the electronic version of CLEAR will be directed to a kiosk outside of Gila River Arena to complete a hard copy of the health questionnaire.

UFC® 263: ADESANYA vs. VETTORI 2 will be held in accordance with all health and safety protocols of the city of Glendale.  Ticket holders should visit Gila River Arena’s UFC 263 event page for additional information on health and safety protocols for the event.

A capacity crowd is expected, as tickets for UFC® 263: ADESANYA vs. VETTORI 2 sold out within minutes of being made available last month. 

UFC and CLEAR previously successfully partnered on UFC® 261: USMAN vs. MASVIDAL 2 this past April in Jacksonville, Fla.  The event was the first, sold out, major sporting event with full capacity at an indoor arena in the United States since last year.

More than 60 organizations across the country use Health Pass to create safer environments, including teams across all major sports leagues, the state of Hawaii, and many more.  Health Pass builds upon CLEAR’s history of creating frictionless experiences in sports, including innovative pilots for touchless ticketing, biometric payments, and age validation.

How It Works: Using Health Pass

  • Download and Enroll at Home: Fans download the free CLEAR app directly from CLEAR (or from the App store for iOS devices or Google Play store for Android devices) and open the Health Pass feature, select their event, and then verify their identity by uploading an identifying document and snapping a quick selfie.
  • Confidential Health Questionnaire: Verified ticket holders will then be presented with a brief series of health-related questions designed to reveal if they may have recently been exposed to COVID-19.   
  • Touchless Access: Depending on their COVID-19 related health information, fans are issued a red or green notification on their Health Pass app.
  • Privacy First: With CLEAR, you are always in control of your information. The venue only receives confirmation a fan has satisfied the requirements for access with the equivalent of a red light or green light signal — and never has access to an individual’s private health details.
