Turner Sports, a division of Warner Bros. Discovery, will exclusively present Capital One’s The Match – headlined by a foursome of legendary NFL quarterbacks in Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers teaming up to face Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen – on TNT, starting at 6:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, June 1, with simulcasts available on truTV and HLN in the U.S.
Fans watching outside the U.S. will also be able to watch the star-studded event through Warner Bros Discovery Sports channels and platforms, marking the first time Turner Sports and its international sports partners have collaborated to deliver true global distribution and audience reach for a sports event.

Six-time Sports Emmy Award winner Ernie Johnson will host the live telecast, alongside Hall of Famer Charles Barkley, three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt, 2008 Masters Champion Trevor Immelman and veteran sports reporter Amanda Renner.
The Wynn Las Vegas, the only golf course on the Las Vegas strip, will host the Sports Emmy-nominated premier live golf event series for the second time in a row, and viewers will be treated to unprecedented access to the players and action through open mics throughout the entire 12-hole competition.
Capital One’s The Match will follow a “shamble” format: All four golfers will tee off at each hole, and each team will select their best tee shot to play. From then on, golfers will play their own ball until they hole out, with the best golfer’s score determining the hole’s winning team.
