For the first time ever, the US is hosting the Copa America soccer tournament, and thanks to Uber and Sprint, you can get to the games at a discount.

Today kicks off the Copa America Centenario, the 100th year of the tournament held among soccer teams from the Americas. The US plays Colombia tonight at 6:30 PT at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Over the coming weeks, games will be held at 10 different stadiums in 10 different cites.

The Uber discount works for any of the locations, to or from the game. Enter the discount for your specific city (see the chart below) to take 50 percent off the cost of your ride. The Sprint site announcing the promotion specifies you'll need to enter the code before requesting your ride.

That half-off discount might not be enough to cancel out the surge pricing from the event -- Uber's fees multiply as demand increases. But it's a nice gesture.
