MUMBAI: Taking the cricketing experience for fans in Bangalore to the next level by transforming how they get to watch and experience their home team in action, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Uber have entered into a first-of-its-kind partnership.
RCB, known for its innovation and focus to deliver the best experience to their fans, has not only been the first to make the entire stadium fully WiFi enabled and solar powered, it has now taken another step in ensuring that commuters can get to and from the stadium conveniently. With this association, every RCB fan can leave their cars and worries about navigating traffic and parking behind and simply Uber it to support their team at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.
RCB VP, commercial operations and cricket academy Russell Adams said, “We are delighted to associate with Uber for a one-of-a-kind partnership in our endeavour to provide an unmatched viewing experience for our fans. I am hoping the vast legion of RCB fans will benefit from this winning partnership and ride responsibly and take an Uber to and from the Chinannswamy Stadium to cheer the team.”
“Partnering with Bangalore’s home team, Royal Challengers is truly exciting for Uber. Our goal is to bring safe, reliable and convenient rides to Bangalore and this partnership goes a long way in delivering an amazing experience to RCB fans. With all the parking hassle that comes with game days, we want fans to enjoy the game without any worries,” said Uber GM Bangalore Bhavik Rathod.
Users can request an Uber at the push of a button and an AC car will arrive within minutes to take them to the stadium for as low as Rs 7/km.
For a few lucky fans, Uber also has a bunch of match tickets to give out before every game, besides some signed official RCB swag and an opportunity to meet the players.
