Sri Lanka’s leading taxi hailing software provider PickMe has come forward to serve as Official Transport Partner to the country’s blue ribbon cricket encounter, the 139th Battle of the Blues.

Together with its official announcement as Official Transport Partner, PickMe also launched its first-ever PickMe Big Match Promo Code Battle allowing spectators of the match to join the fray. As a result, all users of the PickMe app during the entire month of March can enter “ROYAL” or “THORA” to trigger a donation of 5% of their trip value to their school’s fund from PickMe.

Being the longest uninterrupted cricket encounter in the country and the second such in the world, the Royal-Thomian Big Match is an iconic fixture and one of Sri Lanka’s most prominent sporting events.

“Being part of this 139 year old legacy for the first time, PickMe is proud to claim the title of Official Transport Partner while extending our sponsorship to the two schools with the Big Match Promo Code Battle and also a 20% discount on rides taken to the match” said Chief Executive Officer at PickMe Jiffry Zulfer.

Basically, our patrons can enjoy the luxury of being dropped off and picked up at the venue with little to no hassle” added PickMe Vice President – Activations Dhanushka Ranasinghe.
