Uber is getting exclusive ride-sharing access to Super Bowl 50 in San Francisco. 

Uber will reportedly be the only ride-hailing service with access to stadium-side drop-offs. Sorry, Lyft.

"It is a great way for us to celebrate our home city," an Uber spokesperson told Quartz.

Uber is sponsoring the Super Bowl Host Committee with $250,000 to $500,000, Quartz reports.

In past years, cities have restricted Uber (and services like it) from dropping off near the stadium.

This year, Uber will have reserved drop-off zones outside Levi's Stadium.

The reserved spots will be about a 15-minute walk from the gates.
