Kia Motors Australia, the major partner of the Australian Open, has announced a partnership with global technology company Uber, which will offer thousands of lucky tennis fans free rides to the grand slam in Kia’s “Fan Fleet”.
The partnership will see a dedicated Fan Fleet of 30 Kia Seltos vehicles – its new small SUV – transport homegrown and international fans to and from the Australian Open in comfort and style.
Having your chance to land a complimentary ride to the Australian Open from the CBD or Melbourne Park is easy and starts in the Uber app.
If there is a Kia Seltos vehicle available tennis fans can select the “Kia Fan Fleet” icon from the list of ride options. If the time is right and you’re game, you’re set to match up with a Kia Seltos.
While the Kia Fan Fleet is ace, Kia’s power to surprise won’t just stop there.
On January 26 at 9am, comedian Joel Creasy will be kicking off Kia’s Surprise Sunday celebrations by
giving tennis lovers a chance to upgrade their tennis experience.
Dressed in teal as a Kia AO Ballkid, Joel will be handing out 32 passes to the tennis – including 12
double passes to Rod Laver Arena – to deserving fans at iconic landmarks across Melbourne.
Fans who track down the TV star or his Kia Fan Fleet vehicle will also get to travel to the courts in style and on the house.
Uber account holders should keep an eye on the @Uber_Australia Instagram for clues as to
where Joel will be celebrating Kia’s Surprise Sunday.
