NFL teams to offer service where fans can order cheerleader to their seat


Ever been to an NFL game and felt that the gorgeous cheerleaders patrolling the sidelines were so close yet so far away? You almost feel like you could reach out and touch them, but they’re just a little too far and, most importantly, following through on that desire might constitute a crime.

Thanks to the latest in technology, fans will soon be closer than ever to cheerleaders.

Sports Business Journal revealed on Monday that a few teams have partnered with app developer Experience to develop technology that will allow fans to order upgrades when they get to the stadium for a game. The perks will include stuff like getting on the field before a game or having a cheerleader come to your seat.

According to Darren Rovell, the Seattle Seahawks, Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are three teams that have already agreed to offer the premium experiences. League officials were expected to encourage other owners to adopt the technology at the NFL meetings this week.

The Falcons actually began offering some of the services to 3,000 of their season ticket holders last season.

“Anything from pregame on-field, to a birthday message, to cheerleader visits, to mascot visits, to the fly-by pass, which is a dedicated lane where you don’t wait to get into the stadium,” Falcons CEO Jim Smith explained. “All the experiential things sold out within the first four hours they were made available.”

Teams have spent significant time and resources over the past few years coming up with ways to improve the in-stadium experience. Stuff like offering wireless internet at games and showing fantasy stats on stadium scoreboards has done that, but plenty of people are perfectly content watching games on their 60-inch high definition TVs. But can they order a cheerleader to come visit them in their seat? Well, they could probably order someone in a cheerleader outfit … let’s not get into that.

    I don’t understand this. It sounds very sexist to me. The cheerleaders should have the option to refuse to go up to a drunken fan and risk being fondled by a creep.

  • Jeb

    why couldnt she fondle back?

  • SP

    Good Lord. Is the NFL so hard up for cash that they have to sink to this? Don’t get me wrong, I am a warm blooded man who can certainly appreciate a beautiful woman but this is just too much. It is football not a Gentleman’s club? Why disrespect the profession of Cheerleading by offering this?

  • Pistol_Pablo

    Next thing is you’ll be able to order lap dances.

  • BigDawg72

    First thing I thought of.

  • BigDawg72

    with a happy ending I hope.

  • Johnny Loose

    i’ll take two.. lol seriously though this is unnecessary. Its a football game

  • H4BAF

    I thought that’s basically what they just said.

  • H4BAF

    Yeah, this can only end well for all involved. How long till one of the hotties gets groped, or a jealous chick punches one, or some drunk fan gets pizzed that everyone is standing up in front of him?
    I call the trifecta happening the first weekend of the season.

  • oppyu

    Please come to the stadium instead of watching games on tv! We’ll let you sexually assault the cheerleaders!

  • Don Ward

    It ani’t broke don’t fix it or change it got to many ass holes that come to these games need not put the cheerleaders in any type danger

  • Andrew Petry


  • Doug Tozier

    But heaven forbid the players should celebrate a TD by dunking over the goal post! Now that would be inappropriate!

  • CORavensFan

    Great – they are pimping out cheerleaders. I’m sorry, but that’s just degrading.

  • CORavensFan

    I’m sure a cheerleader wants to fondle some fat drunken football fan.

  • toddbook

    By the time they are done coming up with all of these really ridiculous stunts there will be no need for a game! No thanks, if that’s what it will be like at the stadium, I’d rather stay home and watch it without all of the distractions. After all, it’s the damn game I want to see!

  • J Isaac

    in the words of broadway joe..”i wanna kiss you right now”

  • tunaman13212

    Total bullcrap next thing will be order sex from the cheerleader.Don’t they make enough money.

  • ginger303

    table dances in the luxury boxes cannot be too far behind.
    squeezing every last dime out of their fandom.

  • Postulation

    I wonder if the cheerleaders get paid anything additional for this or will they have to do it “for the good of the team”? BTW, regardless of whether they get paid anything, its an awful idea.

  • Human Bg

    This development is disgusting!!! What’s next…they get to do a lap dance to enhance the fan experience! Who came up with this???

  • Keg Man

    $2,000 for some cheerleader to talk to you for 3 minutes. awesome. /s It cant be cheap, there wont be enough girls to go around

  • Pistol_Pablo

    What are the cheerleaders going to do while in the seat next to the fan? How long are they supposed to sit in the seat? There’s just so much that could go wrong that it doesn’t seem like a good idea. But I’m sure a security guard will be part of the proceedings? Right?

  • Pistol_Pablo

    It’s a “look but don’t touch” policy.

  • Rupee

    Does it have to be at a game? Can I just order one now?

  • disqus_N3292TPQCr

    How about we just watch the game,

  • Tommy_Fitz

    Next will be a private session in the VIP room. This can’t last as long as there is alcohol served. Somebody is going to jail with a slap mark on their face or a sore sack of “Balls.”

  • subcaller

    Not sure I want to go to a game with my grandkids and have some beer bottle order up a lap dance in the next row.

  • Ralph_Gizzip

    Maybe the cheerleaders will get to negotiate their own fees for “services rendered.”

    “Sure, you can pay the team to have me come to your seat but after that anything you want will cost you extra.”

  • Reginald D Damn Johnson

    Well they should be paying the cheerleaders more! Sounds like they’re a piece meat in this bs.
