Netflix has confirmed that it will be hosting a tennis match between Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz. The ‘Netflix Slam’ match is due to take place in March 2024.

Last month saw the release of Netflix’s first-ever live sports event. The Netflix Cup featured athletes from Formula 1: Drive to Survive and Full Swing teaming up to compete in an eight-hole match.

With that event now out of the way, Netflix is turning its attention to tennis. The upcoming Netflix Slam will see Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz face off in a special one-night exhibition match. The matchup will be available to watch live on Netflix on March 3, 2024.

Based on the available information, it looks like this will actually be a full tennis event, with Nadal and Alcaraz the headline act. According to Netflix, additional players and matchups will be announced at a later date.

I’m thrilled that with The Netflix Slam, we can give our global audience an opportunity to watch two tennis greats battle each other in a one-of-a-kind live event,” said Gabe Spitzer, Vice President, Nonfiction Sports, Netflix. “A legend like Rafa and a champion like Carlos together on the court, along with tons of other action, promises to be a live show fans won’t want to miss.”

For those interested in actually attending the live event, Netflix Slam will be held at the Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. Tickets will start at $88 (plus applicable service charges and fees) and are due to go on sale to the public on Friday, December 15 at 10 a.m. PST.
