When babies are born, parents usually start thinking about saving for college. But one football-obsessed dad wanted to start saving for tickets to see a football game.

Once his son was born, the dad started collecting loose change and storing it away. This continued for years. Then, once his son was old enough, the dad rolled all of the change he’d collected and took it to his bank.

He had collected over $750, which would cover two tickets to see the Green Bay Packers. The guys put on their favorite jerseys and headed for the game, excited to finally be watching their team in person.

The dad posted about his savings on the popular image sharing site, Imgur. More than 269,000 people have viewed the photos and another 576 people have commented. The dad showed off a photo of all his rolled change and two photos at the football field.

A football-loving dad knew he wanted his son to experience the joys of a football game.

Being obsessed with the Green Bay Packers, the dad knew how expensive tickets could be. According to the Green Bay Press Gazette, ticket prices average $245 a game.

When his son was born, the dad decided it was better to start saving early to pay for those football tickets.

The dad started collecting loose change throughout the years.

Finally, after years of saving, he had enough money to get two tickets to see the Green Bay Packers.

“Saved up loose change since my son was born to take him to Lambeau Field. We did it!” the dad wrote on Imgur.

Commenters were able to figure out there was around $750 in coins in the photo.

After sharing photos on Imgur, people flocked to the comments to congratulate them. “He’ll remember that for the rest of his life,” one commenter wrote.

Another person congratulated him on an amazing bonding experience.

This commenter said the dad was doing great at parenting. They also made a great point that saving the loose change was a great teaching lesson.

There’s no doubt that all of the years of saving loose change paid off for the dad and his son when it was time for game day.

The pair were all smiles posing for a photo inside the stadium.
