Touchdown: You Can Rent a Super Bowl Player’s Apartment to Watch the Big Game

On Sunday, all eyes will be on Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., as the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos battle for the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl 50.

For those lucky fans who did manage to get tickets to the game, we seriously envy you.

But the next best thing to being there? Watching the game at a player’s place. Especially when it’s this sweet.

Carolina Panthers safety Roman Harper has listed his one-bedroom apartment in Charlotte, N.C., on Airbnb, calling it “A Panther’s Dream Den.” And for $5,000 (USD) a night, you can watch Harper and the rest of the Panthers play from the comfort of his personal couch.

There are a few catches though. Harper says only two guests can stay, there are to be no parties or events, no smoking, no football practice in the hallways, no cleats on the hardwood, and no pets, especially Broncos.

Seems manageable.

And according to Travel and Leisure, aside from the lavish condo, guests have access to the 24-hour concierge staff, billiards lounge, Sky Lounge, Cyber Bar basketball and tennis courts, a junior Olympic pool, a 4,000-square-foot health spa, and, naturally, an HDTV screening room outfitted with surround sound for the ultimate Super Bowl viewing experience.

All proceeds from Harper’s listing will go to his charity Harper’s Hope 41 Foundation and Airbnb will also match the $5,000 (that’s currently just north of $7000 Cdn.). Guests will also get to take home a signed football from Harper.

So if you prefer watching the game in a more intimate setting, this just might be your place.

All you need now is a cheap flight to Charlotte, NC. Or a private jet. Your call.
