Ride-sharing app Uber has signed a partnership with 16 teams from the National Basketball Association (NBA) to transport fans to and from matches and enhance the match day experience. 

Uber’s deals are with Minnesota Timberwolves, pills Phoenix Suns, San Antonio Spurs, Golden State Warriors, New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, Memphis Grizzlies, Detroit Pistons, Cleveland Cavaliers, Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls, Sacramento Kings, Indiana Pacers and Portland Trail Blazers for the 2016-17 season.

 The app will offer promotional codes and transport fans to and from dedicated locations.

We are thrilled to partner with NBA teams to bring affordable and reliable transportation to their fans across the country. At Uber, we are obsessed with solving inefficient transportation experiences. With these partnerships, we take the hassle out of getting to and from the game by providing fans with the seamless convenience of designated pick-up and drop off locations,” said Emil Michael, Chief Business Officer at Uber.
