Match For Africa Tickets
Inception: December 2010
Type: Charity Match
Match for Africa TicketsThe Match for Africa is a semi-regular tennis exhibition match between Roger Federer and another top-10 player from the world rankings. Organized and administered by the Roger Federer Foundation, the purpose of the event is to raise money in support of educational programs for children in Botswana, Malawi, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and his native Switzerland. The Roger Federer Foundation, which has raised more than $50 million since it began, selectively works with local organizations to empower people to find solutions for their own specific problems. The inaugural Match for Africa took place in December of 2010 as part of a back-to-back charity event with Rafael Nadal. The first match, held in Zurich, Switzerland, was won by Roger Federer in three sets. The second event, which took place in Madrid, Spain, the very next day, was won by Rafael Nadal. Other participants have included Stan Wawrinka (2014), Andy Murray (2017), John Isner (2017) and Jack Sock (2018).

What is the format of the event?The Match for Africa is a single best-of-three set match. Rules and regulations, including those governing tiebreakers, adhere to standard ATP guidelines. However, because this is an exhibition match, the Match for Africa does not count toward the official rankings. The players are essentially playing the match on their normal time off.
When will the Match for Africa take place?The Match for Africa is a one-day event that takes place at different venues and different times of the year. The sixth edition of the Match for Africa will take place on February 7th, 2020, in Cape Town Stadium, South Africa, between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. It is the first event in the series to be played in Africa (previous stops have included Switzerland and the United States). The stadium gates open around 4:30 p.m. on the day of the match. The event begins with a pro-celebrity doubles match around 7:30 p.m. local time. This is followed by the best-of-three feature match at 8:30 p.m. local time.
Who won the previous Match for Africa?The fifth edition of the Match for Africa took place on March 5th, 2018, in San Jose, Calif. Roger Federer beat Jack Sock in two sets 7-6 (including an 11-9 tiebreaker) and 6-4. In the celebrity doubles competition, Roger Federer teamed up with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates for the second year in a row to take down Jack Sock and NBC Today Show co-host Savannah Guthrie by a score of 6-3 in a one-set showcase. The event raised more than $2.5 million for Federer’s foundation.
What is the capacity of the stadium?The Cape Town Stadium, nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Table Mountain in the seaside suburb of Green Point, has a seating capacity of 50,000. It was built specifically to host the World Cup and now serves as the home of several local teams. Some of its services include emergency medical assistance, disabled facilities and guest relations.
What is the Match for Africa like?Because the location and time vary from one year to another, each match may have its own unique set of activities and atmosphere.
