Artificial Intelligence-Powered Solution to screen fans at Citizens Bank Park beginning Opening Day 2023
WALTHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Evolv Technology (NASDAQ: EVLV), the leader in AI-based weapons detection security screening, today announced its partnership with the defending National League champion Philadelphia Phillies.
Citizens Bank Park will feature Evolv’s state-of-the-art Evolv Express® screening solution beginning with the Phillies’ home opener on April 7, when they host the Cincinnati Reds. Fans will be able to walk through the entrance gates without always having to stop to open bags or be checked individually as they enter the ballpark.
“Philadelphia fans are so passionate about their teams – we want that energy in the ballpark, not lined up outside,” said Sal DeAngelis, vice president of operations and security for the Phillies. “Evolv helps to get everyone in quickly and safely, and from a security standpoint they are great to work with and help us do our job better.”
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 everyday items people carry in their pockets and bags. Citizens Bank Park is the third Philadelphia pro sports venue to implement Evolv.
“This is an exciting time for Evolv to partner with the Phillies,” said John Baier, Evolv’s vice president of sports. “Fans saw their team go to the World Series last year, and they look to continue that momentum on and off the field from the moment they arrive. With Evolv’s technology in the fold for 2023, fans can expect that same winning experience at the entrances as they get to the ballpark to see their Phillies play.”
Evolv is used at a growing number of facilities in all sports, including NFL stadiums like SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles and Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, as well as Major League Baseball’s Fenway Park in Boston and Citi Field in New York.
