How much money will be donated to charity?

It is unclear how much money The Match will raise for charity this year.

The second edition of “The Match” raised $20 million for COVID-19 relief, while the third edition raised $4.4 million for historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

Last year’s event raised at least $1 million for the participants’ charities of choice, although the actual figure was probably higher. The Match will likely announce its fundraising total at a later date.

Several charities will benefit from The Match, including Feeding America.

How much will the winner make?

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson faced off in the first edition of “The Match.” The winner took home $9 million and bragging rights. Michaelson earned the hefty paycheck by defeating his longtime rival.

The next three editions of the event raised money for charities. As a result, none of the participants made any money themselves.

The tournament will follow in the footsteps of the past two. There is no prize money. Rodgers, Brady, Allen, and Mahomes are raising money for charity.
