Clear,® the leader in providing fast pass access through airport security in major airports nationwide, announced today it has forged an exclusive partnership with the San Francisco 49ers that enables Clear to deliver its industry-leading benefits to the team's legions of fans. With the partnership, all Clear card members will enjoy expedited entry to 49ers games at Candlestick Park, as well as fast access through Clear's special security lanes at 18 airports nationwide, including the Bay Area's three airports -- San Francisco International, Oakland International and San Jose Airport.

Participating San Francisco 49ers fans will receive a Clear membership card that grants them exclusive access to Clear's new "fast pass" entry lane located at Gate A in Candlestick Park.
