DStv has confirmed that it will broadcast the upcoming exhibition tennis match between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal on SuperSport.
The event, which has been dubbed “The Match in Africa”, will take place on 7 February 2020 in Cape Town.
The match will be broadcast by SuperSport to both a local and an international audience.
The event will also include a celebrity-professional doubles match pitting Federer and Microsoft founder Bill Gates against Nadal and comedian Trevor Noah.
“This is a dream come true,” said Federer.
“I will play in my mother’s home country against my toughest rival and friend Rafa Nadal. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime moment for my family and me.”
“Roger and I have shared so many magical moments on and off the court,” said Nadal.
“Travelling with him to Cape Town and playing for the benefit of children is something I am very excited about. It will be my first time in the region with Roger as a tour guide – that will be fun.”
The professional-celebrity doubles match will be broadcast at 19:30, while the main event will take place at 20:30.
