Turner Sports Assembles Iconic NFL Foursome for "Capital One's The Match" - Tom Brady & Aaron Rodgers vs. Patrick Mahomes & Josh Allen - Held at Wynn Las Vegas on Wednesday, June 1
TNT to Televise Premier Live Golf Event Featuring Four of Past Five NFL MVPs with Coverage Beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET
Top-Ranked Wynn Las Vegas to Serve as Host of the 12-Hole Challenge for Second Time
Turner Sports' next installment of Capital One's The Match, the Sports Emmy-nominated premier live golf event series, will feature a foursome of legendary NFL quarterbacks - Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers teaming up to face Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen - with four of the past five NFL MVPs taking the course together for the first time. TNT will exclusively televise the epic 12-hole event, to be held Wednesday, June 1, with coverage beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET, from Wynn Las Vegas, the only golf course on the Las Vegas strip.
The competition will feature both previous Capital One's The Match participants paired together - seven-time Super Bowl Champion and three-time NFL MVP Brady teamed with four-time NFL MVP and Super Bowl XLV MVP Rodgers. Rodgers is coming off a win last summer alongside Bryson DeChambeau, while Brady seeks to get redemption in his third appearance in Capital One's The Match.
A pair of young superstars will be making their debut in the premier golf series: Super Bowl LIV MVP and 2018 NFL MVP Mahomes will be joined by fellow AFC signal caller and 2020 Pro Bowler Allen. Together the four elite gridiron stars have amassed an astounding 30 Pro Bowl, 86 NFL Playoff appearances and nine Super Bowl titles.
Live coverage of the match play event from the Wynn Las Vegas golf course will once again feature unprecedented access with players having open mics throughout the entire competition, including the capability to communicate directly with their competitors and the broadcast commentators. More information on the live production, including the commentator team, and additional details will be shared leading up to the event.
Capital One's The Match at Wynn Las Vegas will be held at the Wynn Golf Club, which also hosted Brooks Koepka's 5-and-3 win over DeChambeau in Capital One's The Match last November. Wynn Golf Club is a 6,722-yard, par-70 championship length golf course and is considered one of the best courses in Las Vegas. Located on the site of the legendary Desert Inn Golf Club, the golf course, designed by Tom Fazio and recently updated by his son, Logan, offers elevation changes and uncharacteristic water hazards on 12 of the Las Vegas course's 18 picturesque holes. The golf amenities at Wynn Las Vegas, a Forbes Travel Guide five-star luxury hotel, are regarded as second to none.
Turner Sports has televised five editions of Capital One's The Match, with the series serving as a platform to support various philanthropical organizations. To date, Capital One's The Match has raised nearly $33 million for various organizations and has donated nearly 17 million meals to Feeding America.
A partner since the event's inception, Capital One will return as title sponsor of Capital One's The Match. Further details about social, digital and broadcast brand integrations throughout the event will be shared in the coming weeks.
Partners also include Excel Sports Management as the tournament organizer, along with 199 Productions, Tom Brady's global multi-platform content and production company.
