If you have missed the bus (read ticket) for the ICC World Cup 2019, what can be the next accessible option for travelling to England and Wales between May 30 and July 14, 2019, when the United Kingdom will be playing host to cricket’s biggest quadrennial meet.
Book an Uber ride.
Don’t be surprised. The official ICC World Cup 2019 partner, Uber will be taking its select passengers to England. Literally. It is easy and simple. Score Uber runs to qualify for an option to win a ticket to the ICC World Cup and other memorabilia.
You don’t have to swing a willow for Uber runs. Cricket enthusiasts just need to travel with Uber to earn “runs” and an eligibility to be among the contenders for the ticket to the World Cup.
The Uber scheme, launched today (Monday) offers runs for each ride. An UberAuto, UberMoto, UberPool or UberGo ride is worth four runs, whereas upscale UberPremier, UberIntercity, UberXL and UberHire offer 6 runs for each booking.
The offerings include a travel package to England, besides an ICC Cricket kit or jerseys signed by Uber brand ambassador Virat Kohli. A score of 50 accumulated by 14 July, the day of the ICC World Cup 2019 final, will also earn an opportunity to win Uber promos.
Earlier, another ICC commercial partner Britannia has reintroduced its “Britannia Khao, World Cup Jao” offer.
