If you’re a Steelers fan, the next time you want to watch a game with your best buddy who’s flying to Dubai on business that same day, you might just be able to bro-out at Pittsburgh International Airport.

According to Bloomberg, the airport is launching a TSA-sanctioned program on Sept. 5 for non-travelers, who will be able to get beyond security without a plane ticket and with just a driver’s license.

Of course, all non-travelers will have to go through a regular airport security checkpoint, but once through, they’ll be handed a “myPITpass,” which grants them access to roam around the airport, meet up with arriving family members, shop, dine—or hit up Burgh Sports Bar, where the game will be on for you and your buddy.

The myPITpass program will be in effect from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday—so obviously, you’ll have to wait for the Steelers to land a Monday or Thursday night football game.

And be aware: At peak hours, ticketed passengers will be given priority over you non-traveler types, regardless of when kickoff is or how awesome you look in your Antonio Brown jersey.
