The Goodyear Blimp is known for its coverage of sporting events throughout the country, and now, you have the chance to stay overnight in the blimp.

The cost is around $150 per night, and a blimp stay for two comes with two tickets to the game, exclusive access to the blimp hangar and more.

Guests will also receive tickets to the October 26 game in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This latest team up between Goodyear Blimp and Airbnb is meant to honor the 150th anniversary of college football.

In addition to their stay, guests will also score prime tickets to the big game on the 26th, which will take place at the University of MI in Ann Arbor.


Chief pilot Jerry Hissem told USA Today: 'They will have a tour of our facilities, highlighting our 100 year history and 60+ years of covering college football games.

Fans lucky enough to land this Airbnb will receive tickets to the football game and official gear. The booking does not include a ride on the blimp.

For around $150/night, people will have the chance to visit the hangar in OH and stay overnight on October 22, 23 and 24.

In the "football lounge", visitors can watch historical college football rivalry games while sitting right next to a lakefront spot.

"Your Blimp accommodations will have you doing a touchdown dance".


Somehow, Goodyear squeezed a bed, a couch, two chairs, several tables, a potted plant and plenty of football knicknacks into the tiny blimp gondola, and it looks surprisingly cozy.

Guests aboard the Goodyear Blimp can tailgate during their stay.

The blimp, which will soon be inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, has been providing aerial footage of sports since 1955.

The company said it will roll out opportunities to book a stay throughout the day on October 15, so fans should keep an eye on the Airbnb listing.
