Bill Gates will team up with Roger Federer in doubles to raise money for Federer’s charitable foundation. “Team Gateserer” will play against Rafael Nadal and Trevor Noah, who is from South Africa.
The “Match for Africa” event, held in Cape Town, South Africa on February 7, 2020 will also feature the highly anticipated singles match between Federer and Nadal.
Match for Africa is the 6th edition of the event, and the first to be played on African soil. Federer’s mother Lynette is from Kempton Park, Gauteng, in South Africa.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Federer’s charitable foundation. The foundation has deployed $52 million to educate over 1.5 million children in six African countries and Switzerland.
The stadium will have a seating capacity of more than 50,000 people and is attempting to set a new world record for the most spectators to watch a tennis match.
