An all-star lineup featuring Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce of the Kansas City Chiefs, and Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors, will compete in the eighth iteration of The Match on June 29th. This version of The Match marks the first time that an all-NFL team will face off against an all-NBA team, and the third time the event will be held at Wynn Las Vegas. Mahomes, who debuted in The Match last summer with Josh Allen, and All-Pro Kelce, will offer veteran leadership for their team, while Thompson will play in his first golf exhibition. Curry is the star of the show, having exhibited golfing skills on the professional level in the Ellie Mae Classic on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2017 and 2018. Trash-talking is likely to be a highlight of the event, particularly from Kelce, with the Kansas City Chiefs having been to three of the last four Super Bowls and Curry and Thompson having clinched four Larry O’Brien trophies, most recently in 2022, with sights on their fifth championship this postseason.
The Match has a history of bringing together top athletes from various disciplines. In the latest edition, two all-star quarterbacks will play alongside two NBA all-stars. In The Match’s previous iteration, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady competed against Mahomes and Allen. Before that, Curry played as part of an eclectic foursome, alongside teammate Peyton Manning, who lost to Charles Barkley and six-time major champion Phil Mickelson. The Match’s upcoming edition combines some of the world’s best football and basketball players to see how they fare on the golf course.
The Match’s eighth edition pits an all-NFL squad against an all-NBA team. The competition will be held at Wynn Las Vegas and is expected to draw a large number of viewers. Highlight reels of well-known athletes breaking away from their usual endeavors in the competition is sure to bring in spectators. With Mahomes and Kelce’s football prowess and Curry and Thompson’s basketball feats, all of them have now set their sights on golfing glory. The Match’s previous iterations have been fan favorites, and this year’s edition promises to keep up the excitement and competitiveness that has proven popular with audiences.
