NBC Sports and Uber Launch Fleet of Premier League Mini Coopers in New York City [PHOTOS]
NBC Sports and Uber have teamed together to offer soccer fans in New York City a unique opportunity to ride in Premier League-themed Mini Coopers for free.
In celebration of its second season as the exclusive home of the Premier League in the U.S., NBC Sports Group will unleash a custom-designed convoy of Mini Cooper Countrymans – one for each of the 20 Barclays Premier League teams – into the Uber platform, to provide complimentary rides to New Yorkers from August 14-August 17.
To catch one of these exclusive and free rides, fans in Manhattan can simply enter promo code BPLonNBC in the Uber app for the chance to ride in one of the 20 unique Mini Cooper Countrymans. Once inside, a “Speak Football” app will challenge riders to put their soccer knowledge to the test, as they race against the clock to answer questions from the rules of the game to soccer slang. Riders will also be invited to enter a sweepstakes for the chance to win two round-trip tickets to England to see a Premier League match during the 2014-15 season.
Fans can find the Premier League Uber rides in Manhattan at the following times:
Thursday, August 14 from 3:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Friday, August 15 from 3:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Saturday, August 16 from 6:45 am – 2:00 pm
Sunday, August 17 from 7:30 am – 2:30 pm
New Yorkers, if you see the Mini Coopers in the street or you get a chance to ride in one, please tweet your photos to @worldsoccertalk so we can feature them on the website and on social media.
