Still don’t have a place locked down to watch Super Bowl 50?
Well, if you live in Charlotte, North Carolina, and aren’t lucky enough to have scored tickets to the big game, this might just be something for you to consider…
Panthers’ safety Roman Harper obviously won’t be around Charlotte on Super Bowl eve, and has decided that renting out his apartment on Airbnb isn’t such a bad idea. I’d tout Harper’s entrepreneurial knack, but, as it turns out, should his spacious high-rise digs actually be rented out come this Sunday, the proceeds will go straight to charity. Even better.
Sounds pretty awesome.
This is a football fantasy come true – right in the heart of uptown Charlotte!
This year, for one night only, I’m putting my place up on Airbnb while I head to San Francisco to play the Denver Broncos at Super Bowl 50. In celebration and for those fans who are not able to attend the big game, my family and I are offering the chance for a lucky guest to spend the night! For those who book, we will donate all proceeds to Harper’s Hope 41 Foundation (501c3) that helps enable us to prepare today’s youth for tomorrow’s challenges, and Airbnb will match the proceeds.
On Sunday, February 7, a super fan and their super guest will be able to feel right at home in my living room while I play in this year’s main event.
Kick back on my sofa while watching Super Bowl 50 on our 70 inch TV. Upon arrival, feel free to check out our outdoor junior Olympic pool with an expansive deck and deluxe courtyard, or our 4,000 s.f. spa-inspired health club with yoga room and complimentary fitness classes. As evening approaches, prepare your football finest and take advantage of the kitchen — it’s where I (and my mom) spend most of the time preparing for big games!
Oh, and did I mention, I will throw in a signed football, too.
ESPN discovered the Super Bowl-bound safety’s listing:
“Come watch me play in the Super Bowl — from my own couch,” the listing promises.
The price to stay there is $5,000, with proceeds going to Harper’s Home 41 Foundation. Should a fan rent the apartment, Airbnb will match the donation. Harper said he also will throw in a signed football.
There’s a maximum of two guests. “No pets allowed,” stipulates the listing. “Especially Broncos.”
The listing notes the main television has a 70-inch screen. No parties are allowed.
No parties!? Yeah right. We all know that’s just some legal mumbo jumbo. If I’m making a $5,000 donation to charity, you’re damn right I’m throwing a wild Super Bowl party at Roman Harper’s digs.
And cleaning up everything until it’s utterly spotless the next morning. Can’t have a Super Bowl champion return to a dirty home, now can you?
