June 11, 2018 / Tanzania

Football season is officially here and we want you to make the most of the festive spirit.  Whether you’re watching the game at your favourite bar or cheering on your team from a friend’s couch, we know you’re going to need a reliable ride home. We’re here to give you the tips for a smoother ride to that big game!

Why should I ride with Uber to the big game?

Never miss out on the action when you request a ride with Uber - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You can pay with cash or your card registered on file - it’s that easy! Plus, with 24/7 support, we're here to help whenever you need it.

Stay inside until you’re ready to go

The beauty of Uber is that you can simply tap a button and get a ride while still indoors. No need to hang around on the sidewalk - you’ll be notified when your driver is arriving.

Pick up the team along the way

With Uber, you can pick up the crew before you head out to watch your favourite team in action, by using the multiple destinations feature. How?

  • Open your Uber app.
  • Tap the “+” next to the destination box to add stop(s) at any point before or during your ride.
  • It’s that simple!

Check the details

Ready to hit those city streets? Make sure you check the details in-app and get into the correct vehicle, with the correct driver! Be sure to:

  • Check that the car colour matches the one in-app
  • Identify the registration plate and vehicle model
  • Confirm your driver’s name and picture

Keep your friends and family in the loop

By tapping the “Share status” button, you can immediately share your trip details and route with a loved one. Meeting up with friends? They can watch your trip in real-time so that they know exactly when you arrive.

The only thing holding you back should be your seatbelt


It’s easy to get distracted when you’re in the festive spirit and out on the town. Don’t forget to buckle up as soon as you get into your Uber.

And remember, if you’re going to be drinking, plan ahead and request a ride to ensure a safe ride home.
