New date for Match for Africa 3
October 12, 2016
“The Match for Africa 3,” the third charity tennis event for the Roger Federer Foundation, will now be held on Monday, April 10, 2017, and not November 22, 2016, as originally planned. Roger Federer’s opponent in the Zurich Hallenstadion will be none other than the three-time Grand Slam champion and two-time Olympic gold medallist Andy Murray. “I am extremely happy that Andy – one of the best tennis players in the world – immediately agreed to come to Zurich to help raise money for my foundation. However, I’m even happier that I’ll finally get to play in front of my fans again next spring,” said Roger. Tickets for the Exhibition Night, which also offers a great entertainment program in addition to the main event, will be available on Ticketcorner from November 16, 2016.
All of the proceeds from this event will go to the Roger Federer Foundation. The Foundation provides funding to children living in poverty to help them realize their potential. It also supports education projects in seven countries in southern Africa as well as Switzerland. The foundation’s programs currently support 275,000 children.
