The Match, which has taken place at least once a year since 2020, typically pairs up various sports stars, with the eighth and most recent iteration putting together Golden States Warriors teammates Steph Curry and Klay Thompson against the Kansas City Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce. The ninth edition is going to be all professional golfers, but with four teams instead of two, and with some of the LPGA's best players for the first time.

Max Homa, Lexi Thompson, Rory McIlroy and Rose Zhang face off in this putt-le royale over 12 holes, in an attempt to raise as much money as possible for their chosen charity.

Plus, expect entertaining analyst commentary, banter on and off the green and lots of extra competition; this should be one fun watch. So let's work out how to watch The Match 2024, whether you want to do so online or on TV.

How to watch The Match 2024 in the US

The Match 2024 begins at 6:30 pm ET/3:30 pm PT  on Monday, February 26, with several different ways you can watch it.

If you want to watch The Match 2024 via an online streaming service, you've got one main port of call: Max, with the HBO streaming service hosting the event via its B/R Sports Add-On.

Max costs $9.99 per month for its ad-supported plan or $15.99 monthly for its ad-free one. The sports add-on usually costs an extra $9.99 each month, however you're in luck, as there's currently a free trial running for the expansion, so you can test it out for no additional fee.

You can also watch The Match on TV because TNT is airing the event, with simulcasts also playing on truTV and HLN. If your cable plan offers any of these channels, you're in luck. If not, you can use Max, or a live TV streaming service to stream the channels online.

The cheapest TV streamer you can use is Sling TV, with its $40-per-month Blue plan having all three (its same-priced Orange plan has TNT). You can also opt for Hulu with Live TV, for $76.99 per month, or YouTube TV at $72.99 each month.
