After a really long wait, a short wait.
Chicago Cubs fans waited 108 years for a World Series victory. They’ll only have to wait a few minutes for the championship gear to commemorate it.
Starting at 10 am local time on Thursday, Cubs fans in Chicago can purchase championship hats and t-shirts through the Uber ride-hailing app. Dedicated Uber drivers will be on the road to deliver the gear to customers within minutes.
To make the promotion happen, Uber is partnering with Fanatics, the online retailer that manufactures and sells licensed sports apparel from professional teams. The two companies previously partnered to offer Los Angeles Rams apparel in Los Angeles in advance of the team’s first game this season.
The hats and T-shirts can be ordered by tapping the CHAMPS option in the Uber app. They will sell for $28 each.
