Woods-Mickelson showdown will cost US viewers $19.99 on pay per view

Tiger Woods’ showdown with Phil Mickelson in Las Vegas next month will have a “suggested retail price” of $19.99 (€17.60) to watch on a pay-per-view basis in the United States.

It had been rumoured that ‘The Match’– which will start at 3pm ET on Friday, Nov 23 – would cost $25, which possibly indicates that now there is less interest in the event.

It will be available on AT&T’s two pay-TV services, DirecTV and U-verse, Turner’s new sports streaming service, B/R Live,  as well as other cable, satellite and telco operators in the US and Canada.

Capital One was also announced as the event’s title sponsor. Other corporate partners include Audi and AT&T.

The winner will receive $9m before taxes. Both Woods and Mickelson will give earnings from side bets to charity. No fans have been allowed to attend the match at Shadow Creek, which is owned by MGM Resorts International.
