Singer, rapper and songwriter Post Malone is hosting a beer pong tournament called “The Ballina-Cup,” which will be aired on Instagram Live this week. Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is listed as one of the 16 participants, along with Detroit Lions wide receiver Danny Amendola and former NFL players Johnny Manziel and Rob Gronkowski.

TMZ provided a blurry photo of the bracket here.

Here is fellow rapper MIKE with more information on the tournament:

MIKE adds that all proceeds from the competition will be donated to COVID-19 aid.

According to Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe, Kelce and Patrick Mahomes defeated Post Malone in beer pong 15 times in a row on the night of his concert in Kansas City on February 5, which fell on the same day as the team’s Super Bowl parade.

Kelce and Mahomes’ performance apparently led to Post Malone receiving a Chiefs tattoo, which can be seen above.

The tournament prompted sports betting site SportsBetting.AG to make odds for the event, which are listed below:

Danny Amendola +500 | Post Malone/MIKE +600 | Mike Clevinger +600 | Barstool +800 | NELK Boys +800 | Tyler Seguin +900 | Rob Gronkowski/Camille Kostek +1000 | Johnny Manziel +1200 | Travis Kelce +1200 | Trevor Bauer +1200 | Morgan Wallen +1200 | Marcus Stroman +1400 | Machine Gun Kelly +1400 | Kane Brown +1400 | Dansby/Mallory +1600 | Zack Bia +1600

According to TMZ’s bracket, Kelce plays Amendola — the tournament favorite — in the first round.
