Look out, New Jersey: Here comes McConaughey!

The famed polo classic, to be held on June 1 at the Garden State’s Liberty State Park, will boast Matthew McConaughey as one of its co-hosts, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

The dad of three will share hosting duties with polo star Nacho Figueras, his wife Delfina Blaquier and Veuve Clicquot U.S. President Vanessa Kay.

The classic has quite a history of, well, hot guys. Last year’s event was hosted by Clive Owen, and the previous year Hugh Jackman was master of ceremonies. Even Prince Harry got in on the action when he played there in 2009 and 2010.

This year’s match will benefit McConaughey’s Just Keep Livin Foundation a charity started by the actor and his wife Camilla to empower high school students to lead active lives, and Liberty Park, which was damaged in Superstorm Sandy last fall.
