ANDY MURRAY LAUNCHES ‘ANDY MURRAY LIVE 2017’
ROGER FEDERER TO PLAY IN SCOTLAND FOR FIRST TIME
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.
Tickets go on sale today, with half of all seats costing just £25, making the event very accessible for all. Last year tickets sold out within 48-hours and demand this year is expected to be even higher.
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.
Murray said, “Last year was such a fantastic night and to raise over £300,000 for Unicef and Young People’s Futures in our first year was amazing. This year is going to be even bigger and better and I am so pleased to be able to bring Roger to play in Scotland for the first time – he will get a chance to see for himself just how enthusiastic Scottish fans are, and what a great venue The SSE Hydro is. It is also important for me to be able support Unicef again this year, and to help a different local charity as well."
Presenting partner, SSE’s Senior Sponsorship Manager, Stuart Mackenzie added,
“We are proud to continue our partnership with ‘Andy Murray Live’. The atmosphere last year was fantastic and I am sure that this year will be even better. The success Andy has had on and off the court is unprecedented and he is a wonderful ambassador for British sport. We’re looking forward to what promises to be an incredible event, and we’ll also be offering our customers signed up to SSE Reward the chance to win some incredible experiences ahead of the day."
Andy Murray announces local charity partner for 2017
Glasgow, 22nd August, 2017: Andy Murray, today announced that Glasgow based charity, Sunny-sid3up, will join Unicef as charity partner at this year’s Andy Murray Live, presented by SSE.
Sunny-sid3up is a Govan-based charity which focusses on tackling projects that improve lives and communities in Scotland and overseas. The charity is run by the family and friends of its late founder, Christopher Feeney.
All proceeds from Andy Murray Live will be shared equally between Sunny-sid3up and Unicef. Last year, the event at The SSE Hydro, Glasgow, raised a total of £305,000 for charity and organisers expect this year to raise an even greater amount when Andy is joined by tennis legend Roger Federer on November 7th.
Murray said, “I am really pleased that Andy Murray Live can support another Glasgow based charity and make a real difference to the lives of those in need in Scotland and further afield. The work that Sunny-sid3up do was a real inspiration to me. As well as supporting Unicef, it is important to me that each year my event can benefit a local Scottish charity – the first Andy Murray Live gave a real boost to Young People’s
Futures and this year I am confident that we can do even better for Sunny-sid3up.” Speaking on behalf of Sunny-sid3up, Tony Feeney added, “we are so grateful to Andy for choosing to support us this year. My brother Chris would have been very proud that his dedication to those less fortunate than himself had been recognised in this way. The funds from Andy Murray Live will allow us to make a real difference to those in need – not just close to home but also in Sri Lanka where we continue with the good work started by Chris after the Boxing Day Tsunami.”
Andy Murray Live will return to The SSE Hydro, Glasgow on 7th November 2017, when Andy will play Roger Federer in the Singles, before being joined by brother Jamie to take on Tim Henman and Mansour Bahrami in a more light-hearted Doubles encounter. Tickets for the event sold out within hours of going on sale but fans will still be able to follow all the action live on Eurosport.
