Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers Join Forces to Compete in Big Event
Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers will be on the same team for a big event. On Monday, TNT announced that the two future Hall of Famer quarterbacks will team up to compete in Capital One's The Match, which is a live golf event series. The duo will face Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, and the event will take place at the Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas on June 1 at 6:30 p.m. ET.
Brady teased the announcement on Twitter Sunday night. And on Monday, the seven-time Super Bowl champion joked that the four quarterbacks wanted to do a "tag team cage match" instead of a golf event. This is the sixth edition of The Match with the first one being in November 2018 when Tiger Woods took on Phil Mickelson. The second one was in May 2020 when Brady and Mickelson took on Woods and Manning. In November of the same year, Mickelson and Charles Barkley took on Manning and Stephen Curry. In July 2021, Rodgers and Bryson DeChambeau took on Mickelson and Brady. And the most recent edition of the match occurred in November when DeChambeau took on Brooks Koepka.
