Carolina Panthers safety Roman Harper has an appointment in Santa Clara, California on Sunday evening and won’t be using his house for a few days.

So Harper is giving a chance to Panthers fans to come watch Super Bowl 50 from his own couch while he’s playing in the game Sunday night.

Harper posted his Charlotte house on AirBnB for $5,000 to provide the opportunity for a fan and guest to watch the Panthers play from his home. The peer-to-peer property rental service will match the $5,000 and the total sum will go to benefit Harper’s “Hope 41 Foundation.”

Kick back on my sofa while watching Super Bowl 50 on our 70 inch TV,” Harper wrote in the listing. “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!

Harper also said he’ll throw in a signed football for good measure.

It’s an interesting and unique opportunity to connect with the fan base as the Panthers get ready for their second Super Bowl in franchise history on Sunday.

    Pats fan here. Kudos to Roman Harper for coming up with a unique way to connect with his fans and help a charity at the same time. Very well done.

    There is no way I’ll ever let strangers hang out in my house when I’m not there.

    Cool idea, especially giving the proceeds to charity.

    Not even an idiot would pay five grand to watch a football game on TV!!

  6. helicopterpilot13 says: Feb 3, 2016 9:43 PM

    What kind of house does he have that offers “fitness classes” when no one is there????

  7. helicopterpilot13 says: Feb 3, 2016 9:44 PM

    Posters on here saying its “cool” are “fools”.

    As if he is dumb enough to open his house to a stranger without some sort of security being around as well!

    They’ll empty that house. Big one day sale….

    Too cool. And for charity at that

    If only it was player whose name I recognized.

  12. timriss28 says: Feb 3, 2016 11:15 PM

    I’m surprised he even has a house that big in the area considering he’s not from here and is on a 1 yr contract.

  13. udkidd says: Feb 3, 2016 11:30 PM

    This is an awesome idea. Sure there will be guarantee of security/things not getting swiped. And for charity to boot. Sounds like a great guy.

    Oh man, I’ll bring the Papa John’s! And my swim trunks.

    I’m wondering since its for charity would he rent it to a Broncos fan?

    Pack fan here – and I love this. Kudos to Harper and AirBnB for an innovative way to raise money for charity and give fans a unique experience – while not being over expensive. I can easily see 5-10 guys pooling money together for this. Nicely done.

    Thats awesome

  18. daviericky says: Feb 4, 2016 8:39 AM

    Prime opportunity for some 1% upper decking.

  19. greg3117 says: Feb 4, 2016 9:19 AM

    Some jackass will take an “upper decker”.

  20. In Teddy We Trust says: Feb 4, 2016 9:56 AM

    Wait. He has a health club with fitness classes in his house?

  21. pitu1234 says: Feb 4, 2016 10:35 AM

    70″ TV? That’s it? I would go but that’s to small for me.
