World number one, Andy Murray, today announced that tennis legend Roger Federer will join him for his second tennis exhibition event, Andy Murray Live presented by SSE. The charity fundraiser will return to The SSE Hydro Glasgow, on Tuesday 7th November this year.
The event will feature a mix of world-class tennis and some light-hearted entertainment. Following the singles match against Federer, Murray will be joined by brother Jamie to take on Tim Henman and Mansour Bahrami in a more relaxed doubles challenge.
Once again, all proceeds from the event will be donated to charity. Funds this year will be shared equally between Unicef, the world’s leading children’s organisation, of which Murray is a UK Ambassador, and a local Scottish charity to be announced soon.
Fans unable to make it to Glasgow for the carnival of tennis can follow all of the action as it happens on Eurosport. ‘Andy Murray Live’ has partnered with Eurosport, the Home of Grand Slam tennis, to broadcast the event exclusively across the United Kingdom, Europe and around the world.
