Airbnb, the online accommodation service that allows people to rent out lodging, recently announced that soccer star Andres Iniesta is becoming a one-off host on the website.

Airbnb guests can stay at Bodega Iniesta, the family-owned vineyard in the FC Barcelona player's hometown of Fuentealbilla in Castile-La Mancha, Spain.

It's the first time for the residence to open its doors to football and wine fans from all over the world, who will get to know the place where Iniesta grew up.

Airbnb makes it possible for guests to live in some never-before-accessed places, such as the Waterstones bookshop in London.

According to Iniesta, Airbnb guests travel because they want to feel at home where they go. "For my family, the Bodega is a dream come true," he says in a post on the site. "I want to share this charming space with travelers who are looking for a once-in-a-lifetime experience."

To enter the contest, visit and tell Iniesta why you want to stay in the Bodega. One winner will be selected and can bring a friend or family member to stay in a guesthouse on the grounds of the vineyard on Dec 22. The two lucky ones will also spend two nights in Barcelona to visit the FC Barcelona Museum and a soccer game.

Airbnb will cover all accommodation, meals and transport, including flights to Barcelona and transfer to the winery.
