Both CNN International as well as HLN (plus TNT, TBS, and TruTV) will air “Capital One’s The Match: Champions for Charity, a blockbuster live golf competition headlined by golf icons Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson returning for a rematch, this time joined by Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, two of the NFL’s greatest players of all time,” according to CNN in an announcement. It will air Sunday, May 24, at 3 p.m. ET.
Associated with the live telecast, WarnerMedia and the golfers will collectively make a charitable donation of $10 million to benefit COVID-19 relief. A sanctioned PGA TOUR event, it will be held at the prestigious Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida.
Jeff Zucker, chairman of WarnerMedia news and sports, said in a statement, “The COVID-19 pandemic has caused unimaginable tragedy and heartbreak. We’re hopeful this event and platform will help raise meaningful funding for COVID-19 relief, while also providing a source of brief distraction and entertainment for all sports fans.”
The event commentators will include host Brian Anderson, analysts Trevor Immelman and Charles Barkley, with on-course reporters Amanda Balionis and Justin Thomas.Follow @CommentaryCNN
