HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Feb. 10, 2022—Nickelodeon is putting slime on the green in a brand-new golf special, Nickelodeon Slime Cup, produced with key members from the team behind the popular made-for-TV golf franchise, The Match. The hour-long special will feature a “Nick-ified” golf course with one-of-a-kind tee boxes, far-out fairways and greens, physical challenges, and lots of slime, culminating with an exciting final hole taking place inside the iconic Rose Bowl stadium. Production will begin this February at a Los Angeles-area golf course, with a premiere slated for this summer on Nickelodeon.

Update (5/29) - The Nickelodeon Slime Cup will air Saturday, June 25 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Nickelodeon!

Nickelodeon Slime Cup will feature four teams of three that consist of a professional golfer, a celebrity and a Nickelodeon star. Confirmed participants include: top-ranked professional golfers Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas, Lexi Thompson and Jon Rahm; NFL superstars Saquon Barkley and Justin Herbert; actor, host and author Terry Crews; and Nick stars Isaiah Crews, Kate Godfrey, Jaidyn Triplett and Tyler Wladis. Nickelodeon star Gabrielle Nevaeh Green will provide commentary in the booth to bring the same kid perspective she brought to the NFL Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon. Additional talent will be announced at later date.

Teams will compete in a two-round tournament, with holes inspired by fan-favorite Nickelodeon shows, to reach “The Unfairway”—an unpredictable final round where players battle it out to win the ultimate Nickelodeon Slime Cup, a Slime-green blazer and the epic honor of getting slimed.
