22nd December will be a full-on day for the Rafa Nadal Foundation as it is holding its first major event with the public in attendance. The afternoon will begin with a charity match between Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer, starting at around 6pm at the Caja Mágica in Madrid. Both players will touch down in the capital on the same morning, flying in from Zurich where they played a charity match for the Swiss player’s Foundation the day before.

Later on, a Gala Dinner will be held at the Galería de Cristal del Palacio de Cibeles, and the exclusive social event will be rounded off with a concert by Julio Iglesias.

Rafa Nadal: “I’m delighted that Julio, our most internationally-known Spanish artist, is supporting us on this important day. I’ve been an admirer of his since I was small and it’s an honour for me and for the Foundation to have him here today. I am very thankful to him for his participation in the dinner.”

The world No. 1 has, on many occasions, declared himself a fan of the Madrid singer who will travel from the US to Madrid especially to support the Foundation and the Majorcan tennis player. All proceeds from the match and the gala dinner will go to the Rafa Nadal Foundation which, since 2007, has been developing projects to help children and young people with disabilities or who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
