WFTS Tampa Bay has reported that AT&T has partnered with Uber to give college football fans a break on their Uber rides in Tampa during the National Championship game. They have stated:
From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. January 7th through 9th, AT&T is working with Uber to offer free rides around Tampa. All you have to do is open the Uber app and request “FOOTBALL” during the designated times on Saturday, Sunday and Monday as Tampa is celebrating the College Football Championship weekend. Even better, select riders will be given the ability to watch LIVE football action from on-board Samsung tablets. Those tablets will be powered by the AT&T network. You don’t have to be an AT&T customer to get this deal. Just be patient because demand is going to be high and availability will be limited.
Recently, Uber has been working to offer free ride promotions during major events, like CES in Las Vegas, and now during the biggest NCAA football game of the season. As a rider, this is of course something that is good to see!
