Action from the three-day tournament will also be aired live on a variety of paid-for and free-to-air broadcasters providing coverage in 138 countries around the world.
Will Staeger, LIV Golf’s Chief Media Officer, said: “The LIV Golf broadcast will be unlike anything fans have seen before. The innovations we are introducing to the sport will be distributed to existing and new audiences all over the world as we deliver golf coverage dedicated to entertainment and access. We’ve built a world-class production team that has combined the industry’s best practices with a reimagined experience for viewers to create a one-of-a-kind broadcast. We’ve been counting down the days to Thursday’s start so fans can tune in and watch what we have been working on.”
The field for the 48-man tournament added five more names yesterday following the conclusion of the Asian Tour’s International Series event at Slaley Hall. Viraj Madappa (IND), Kevin Yuan (AUS), Travis Smyth (AUS), Ian Snyman (South Africa) and Thailand’s Itthipat Buranatanyarat will all be teeing it up at Centurion having qualified from the cumulative International Series Order of Merit.
With 47 players now confirmed, one place remains to be announced to complete the field.
