Uber has signed a deal to become the official rideshare and transportation partner of Brazilian soccer side Clube do Remo.

Under the terms of the contract, Remo will receive a commission each time that one of their fans signs up for the transportation application using the promotional code ClubeDoRemo.

Uber had already signed similar agreements with Brazilian soccer outfit Flamengo, Serie A champions Juventus and England’s Manchester United. The Silicon Valley company has recently started operating in Brazilian cities such as Belém, Manaus and Porto Velho.

“For Uber, it is a joy to contribute to the Remus, especially at a time when we have just reached so many cities in the North of the country,” said Henrique Weaver, director of Uber in the north. “We expect many people to start driving with us and generate income at the touch of a button.”

Clube do Remo finished 11th in the 2016 Campeonato Brasileiro Série C and fourth in the Pará state competition, the Paraense.
