New screening process at Citizens Bank Park will not require fans to open their bags or be individually checked upon entrance
The Philadelphia Phillies will no longer require fans attending baseball games at Citizens bank Park to stop and open their bags or be checked individually as they enter the ballpark.
Citizens Bank Park Screening Process
Now we’re talking. No more trying to remove your cellphone, wallet, keys, and whatever else you have in your pockets while entering CBP. You are now free to just walk right on, which probably has a ton of college kids very excited that they have a better chance to sneak some brewskis into the game that were left hanging at the tailgate.
However, that is actually not the case. Much like everything in the world today, the relaxed entrance rules come with a catch.
The Phillies will now be utilizing artificial intelligence to scan patrons as they enter the confines of Citizens Bank Park.
Basically, it will be much faster to enter the CBP, but you’ll have to sell your soul to A.I. robots in return.
Here’s what The Philly Voice said about the new fan screen process at Citizens Bank Park:
New fan screen process: quicker entry into the ballpark! Fans will now be able to walk right through the entrance gates without having to stop to open bags or be checked individually as they enter the ballpark. This new feature is thanks to Evolve Technology, which will be partnering with the Phillies to use a powerful technology with artificial intelligence to provide safer, more accurate threat detection at unprecedented volume and speed.
In all seriousness, I actually like it.
It’s hard to admit that, given my anti-artificial intelligence stance on basically everything, however getting into any sports stadium in Philadelphia is typically a nightmare. This sounds like a solution that will speed up this process so there’s literally no complaints here.
Next up, we need the Philadelphia Eagles to get on board. Waiting in line to get through the gates is absolute chaos.
Sixers games are arguably worse since you have to wait in line and then squeeze through a small entrance to then go through security. Hopefully if Citizens Bank Park is successful, then we’ll see more updates from the other stadiums and arenas in the city coming soon.
