Airbnb is courting Toronto
sports fans with its latest rental on the market: a free overnight stay in a
private suite at the city's sports arena complete with premium tickets to
see both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Toronto Raptors play.
Instead of
taking bookings, though, Airbnb is hosting a contest to determine the fan most
deserving of what the company is billing as the "ultimate sports weekend."
And it is a pretty exciting weekend planned for anyone obsessed with
Toronto sports.
On the weekend of January 23, none other than Hockey Hall of
Famer and former Maple Leafs captain Doug Gilmour will play the role of Airbnb
"host." And the room that he's hosting? Airbnb is transforming a private
suite in the Air Canada Centre—home of both the Maple Leafs and the
Raptors—into a bedroom with a balcony overlooking the lower bowl.
Beyond that, Gilmour will take the winner on a sports apparel shopping
spree, hook them up with platinum ice-level seats to see the Maple Leafs play
the Montreal Canadiens, and hook them up even further the next day with
courtside tickets to watch the Raptors go up against the Clippers.
The winner
will also sit in on each team's warm-up practice and attend Maple Leafs head
coach Mike Babcock's post-game press conference.
Toronto fans aren't the first that Airbnb has wooed with this kind of
contest.
The home-sharing company has also arranged fantasy weekends for Red
Sox fans at Fenway Park, VIP concert tickets for Grateful Dead fans in
Chicago, and most recently a Halloween overnight stay in the catacombs of
Paris.
This particular Airbnb contest is accepting entries right this second,
asking for short original essays arguing, "Why I'm the biggest Toronto
Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors Fan and what it would mean to me to stay
overnight at the Air Canada Centre." The contest closes at 11:59 p.m.
on
December 15, so get on it, sports fans.
