Thank you Norman for your guidance and support. Friday night my dream came true. Firstly thank you very much to Roger Federer who trusted our company No Boundaries to host the Match in Africa 6. To Holger Losch my partner for all your hard work and helping me to make this a reality. You are a machine. To every member of our team who work so hard with passion and determination and took ownership of this event. You are the best. Eduard Coetzee you are the best. A big thank you to everyone who bought tickets and supported the event. It was an awesome night. We showed the world what South Africans can do.
