Hublot loves Football
On the eve of the UEFA EURO 2016TM, just before the big kick-off of the European Football Championships for which Hublot is Official Watch, the Swiss watchmaker is bringing together two brand new teams for a historic match. A line-up that football has never seen, and that football fans have always dreamt of. There are moments in football that are eternal, and Hublot is writing one.
Hublot as the first luxury brand to invest in football back in 2008 has chosen an iconic venue to host this prestigious event. Just a few metres from the Louvre, next to the “Colonnes de Buren” in the heart of the Palais Royal, two legendary teams will compete on this fresh turf. Take the 2 best players of all time, 10 legends and stars of the round ball game, and create 2 teams for a classic friendly match bringing together players used to competing against each other. The players take the field, followed by Pelé and Maradona. Recognised as the best players of all time, the two coaches shake hands before the kick-off. At half time, there is a penalty shoot-out for the UEFA Foundation, “UEFA Foundation for the children”. After 30 minutes of a hard-fought game, Team Pelé – Ferdinand, Hierro, Dida, Crespo and Bebeto and Team Maradona – Trezeguet, Peruzzi, Ferrara, Materazzi and Seedorf, end up at equal scoring. In this European Championship year, Hublot reigns supreme as the master of the round ball. The brand is there for every match.
