Forget about fantasy football. For some, this is a vacation dream come true.
Gridiron fans can go on a tropical holiday with the cheerleading squad from two NFL teams: the Washington Redskins and the New England Patriots.
“The girls are very adventurous. Last year we all went swimming with the dolphins.”
“Whether they’re working out with us or playing beach volleyball, it’s about engaging the fans,” said Stephanie, director of the Redskins cheerleading squad, who, for safety reasons, won’t reveal her last name.
The Washington Redskins Cheerleader’s trip in May includes a 5-night stay at the Occidental Grand in Cozumel, Mexico. Room rates start at $142 per person, per night and airfare is not included.
The Patriots trip in June features a 6-night stay at the Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Room rates for this start at a pricier $385 per person, per night, and airfare is not included.
The price may be steep for some, but the cheerleaders say fans pay for the quality time with the women.
