Turner Sports’ next installment of Capital One’s The Match, the Sports Emmy-nominated premier live golf event series, will feature a foursome of of the top quarterbacks in the NFL.
Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers are teaming up to face Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen, as four of the past five NFL MVPs are taking the course together for the first time. TNT will exclusively televise the epic 12-hole event, which will take place on 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.
Brady, a seven-time Super Bowl Champion and three-time NFL MVP, and Rodgers, a four-time NFL MVP, were both participants on the previous Capital One’s The Match and will be on the same team this time around. Rodgers is coming off a win last summer with 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. Mahomes, Super Bowl LIV MVP and 2018 NFL MVP for the Kansas City Chiefs, is teaming up with Allen of the Buffalo Bills. The four star signal callers have amassed 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.
