Fenway Sports Group joins TGL golf league

FSG is one of “Original Six” founding owners in TGL’s tech-forward, primetime golf league

BOSTON (June 26, 2023): TGL, the new tech-forward, primetime, team golf league developed by Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy’s TMRW Sports in partnership with the PGA TOUR, has announced the formation of its second of six team ownership groups with Fenway Sports Group (FSG). As the parent company of the Boston Red Sox, Liverpool Football Club and the Pittsburgh Penguins, FSG’s TGL team will represent Boston and the New England region, competing in TGL’s opening season in January 2024. The announcement was made today by FSG Principal Owner John Henry and Chairman Tom Werner and TGL CEO Mike McCarley. 

Fenway Sports Group Principal Owner John Henry and Chairman Tom Werner said, “We are  excited for this new journey as one of the six inaugural TGL teams in honor of a city whose love and passion for sports is unparalleled. Through this new, tech-focused version of the game,  New England sports fans will soon have a team of world-class PGA TOUR players to cheer for and redefine for this community what it means to play the game in the modern era. We owe tremendous thanks to Tiger, Rory, and Mike for creating this innovative new league and allowing us to be present at its creation. We are excited to reveal more details later this summer and fall when we’ll unveil an official name and team members who will represent this great city and region.”  

FSG is a global sports, marketing, media, entertainment, and real estate company featuring  some of the most-iconic brands and venues in sports. Over more than two decades of operation, the company has amassed four World Series Championships with the Red Sox and eight trophies for Liverpool Football Club, including the Premier League, Champions League,  and FIFA Club World Cup titles. In addition to a proven track record of winning, FSG has helped modernize and transform two of the world’s most hallowed sports venues, Fenway Park and Anfield Stadium, into spectacular year-round entertainment destinations. With headquarters and a successful sports franchise in Boston, FSG has deep ties to the Boston and New England community and has an existing infrastructure for charitable giving and programming in the city  and region. 

“Fenway Sports Group has been a believer in TMRW Sports from our first conversations and it’s fitting to welcome them as the next TGL ownership group with their acquisition of the Boston  team,” said Mike McCarley. “Boston sports fans are well-known for their passion and  commitment to their teams, no matter the sport. The team at FSG is uniquely positioned to help build an expanding community for fans of golf and embracing that audience is foundational to  the Boston’s TGL team’s mission. Their deep experience in owning and operating championship-level teams across MLB, Premier League and NHL is a testament to their  commitment to excellence.” 

In October 2022, FSG was part of the initial investor group in TMRW Sports, the parent company of TGL. The new golf league offers a fresh approach to the sport with a focus on  technology, innovation and fan engagement. A purpose-built venue in Palm Beach, Florida, will combine a data-rich virtual course with a state-of-the-art short game complex creating a unique  experience for the fans in the stands and watching around the world. The new league will  feature the world’s top players in a two-hour, team golf competition that merges physical and virtual golf airing in primetime and beginning in January 2024. The TGL Boston team will play in five regular season matches against the other TGL teams, followed by semi-final and finals series. Twelve players committed to play in TGL have previously been announced, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Matt Fitzpatrick, Justin  Rose, Adam Scott, Xander Schauffele, Max Homa, Billy Horschel, and Rickie Fowler.
