A few uninjured defenders, a running game, some more offensive line help — all of that may be on your Christmas wish list for the Seattle Seahawks at this point in the season, but how about just settling for a new piece of team gear?

In a fun promotion the week before a Christmas Eve matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, the Seahawks are partnering with Uber and Fanatics to make last-minute holiday shopping a little easier for dedicated 12s.

Fanatics, the online retailer that is enjoying big success with its sale of licensed sports merchandise, is the official e-commerce partner of the Seahawks. The company will be stocking a virtual store on the Uber Eats app (iOS and Android) from Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., allowing Seattle-area fans to shop for merchandise and get it delivered quickly.

“This is is a novel way for us to offer something really fun and special to our customers and Seattle Seahawks fans,” said David Rutenberg, regional general manager for Uber Eats, in a news release. “Whether people are looking for a great Seahawks-themed gift, or another piece of gear for their own collection, the pop-up store should have something for everyone.”

Fans are encouraged to download the app, search for “Seahawks” to find the shop and check out the limited supply of jerseys, accessories and holiday items.

Uber Eats users who haven’t placed an order before can enter the promo code TWELVES for free delivery on their first three orders of food or Seahawks gear. The offer is valid through Dec. 31, and the standard Uber Eats booking fee applies for all other orders.

Blitz, the Seahawks mascot, will also accompany select orders toward the end of the week, on Thursday from 11 a.m. to noon and Blue Friday from 2 to 3 p.m.

Delivery is limited to a three mile radius around the Seahawks Pro Shop, which has four area locations: CenturyLink Field, Downtown (4th and Pike), Renton Landing and Alderwood Mall.
