Roger Federer set to play Laver Cup 2020
Roger Federer, 20-time Grand Slam champion and one of the greatest players of all time will represent Team Europe once again at the eagerly anticipated fourth edition of the Laver Cup to be held in Boston at the iconic TD Garden from September 25-27.
Tickets for the unique team competition will go on sale at 10:00am Eastern Time on Friday, March 6 via Ticketmaster.
Federer has been part of the winning Team Europe side since the inaugural Laver Cup in Prague in 2017 and is passionate about the event that has captured the imagination of fans around the world. This will be the first time the Swiss master has visited Boston.
“I’ve never been to Boston and I’m really looking forward to seeing some of the sights and playing tennis in front of their great fans” said Federer.
“The Laver Cup is like nothing else in world tennis and I’m sure playing in a city that loves its sport as much as Boston does, the atmosphere is going to be unreal. “
“Each year gets tougher for Team Europe to hold back Team World, and Boston will be a whole new ball game.”
The three-day team competition pits six of the best players from Europe, captained by Bjorn Borg, against six of their counterparts from the rest of the World, led by John McEnroe.
Named in honor of Australian tennis legend Rod Laver, the event will be played on a dramatic black court, constructed within the TD Garden – home of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins.
Multi-session tickets will be available for purchase on Friday, March 6, offering fans the same seat to all five sessions over the three days.
The Laver Cup sold out arenas in Prague, Chicago and most recently Geneva within hours of going on sale and the demand for tickets is expected to be high.
“We’re looking forward to launching ticket sales next week,” Laver Cup CEO Steve Zacks said today.
“We’re expecting an incredible experience in September for both the players and fans alike at TD Garden in one of the greatest sports cities in the world.”
The Laver Cup is a joint initiative between TEAM8, Tennis Australia, the USTA and Jorge Paulo Lemann and is part of the ATP Tour calendar.
The Laver Cup is supported by Founding Partner Rolex and Global Sponsors Credit Suisse and Mercedes-Benz.
