The Chicago White Sox announced a new, multiyear partnership agreement with Uber, naming the app-based service the organization's first official rideshare provider of the White Sox.

Throughout the remainder of the season, Uber will receive prominent brand exposure inside and outside Guaranteed Rate Field. The exclusive partnership offers fans access to the Uber Rideshare Zone in Lot A (located off of Wentworth Ave. between 33rd and 35th Street) and launches the "Runs Driven Home by Uber" program, donating $15,000 to Chicago White Sox Charities (CWSC).

"The White Sox are always looking for ways to improve the fan experience at the ballpark, from food and entertainment to special offers and convenient access to transportation," said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. "We are excited to partner with Uber to provide fans another easy option to access the ballpark from a company that offers affordable and convenient rides to and from Guaranteed Rate Field."

"As the official rideshare partner of the White Sox, we're thrilled to support Chicago White Sox Charities through 'Runs Driven Home by Uber,' while making it easier for Sox fans to get to and from the ballpark," said Marco McCottry, general manager for Uber Chicago.

The Uber Rideshare Zone in Lot A will provide a convenient, dedicated location for fans to be dropped off or picked up for White Sox games. Fans should exit the ballpark through Gate 5 and head east to the designated pick-up area in Lot A. The designated area is on the east side of Lot A along Wentworth Ave. For access to the designated lot, drivers should head south on Wentworth Ave. and enter Lot A between 33rd and 35th Street. The lot will be open until one hour after home games conclude.

Uber provides an alternate, affordable way to get to and from Guaranteed Rate Field as well as around the greater Chicagoland area. As part of the White Sox partnership, Uber will launch a Driver Recognition Program that provides White Sox home game tickets and ballpark experiences to some of its top drivers in the Chicagoland area. The partnership also offers fans $15 off their first ride in Chicago with the promotional code "GoSox17." Fans can download the app on their phone and enter "GoSox17" in the promotions section.
