Evolv Named Official Fan Screening Provider of the Mets as Presence at Ballpark Grows
WALTHAM, Mass. – (April 20, 2023) – Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), the leader in AI-based weapons detection security screening, today announced that its screening solution will be used at all Citi Field entrances beginning in the 2023 season.
Citi Field has already featured Evolv’s state-of-the-art Evolv Express® screening solution at its busiest gates since 2021. Beginning on April 6th for the Mets home opener against the Marlins, usage of the Evolv Express security screeners was expanded to welcome fans at all major points of entry. This will now provide guests with an efficient touchless security experience – no stopping or slowing for a wand or traditional metal detector check process.
“We’ve had tremendous success with Evolv, and the feedback from fans has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Oscar Fernandez, Mets vice president of technology solutions. “It is an exciting time to root for the Mets, and fans are coming out to see the team in droves. We want to make sure everyone has the same positive experience, starting from the moment they enter the ballpark.”
Evolv Express uses powerful sensor technology with artificial intelligence (AI) to provide safer, more accurate threat detection at unprecedented volume and speed. It allows security officials to tell the difference between threats and the everyday items people carry in their pockets and bags.
“We’ve had a great experience already working with the Mets,” said John Baier, Evolv’s vice president of sports. “We look forward to an increased Evolv presence at Citi Field in 2023, helping to keep fans safer while getting them into the park quickly so they can ‘Meet the Mets.’”
Citi Field is one of many Major League Baseball parks partnering with Evolv as the 2023 season gets underway. The technology is featured in a wide variety of sports facilities, from the NHL’s Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia to the NFL’s SoFi stadium in Los Angeles, and Major League Soccer’s Lower.com Field in Columbus, Ohio, among others.
