Hublot Loves Football – A Unique Project From Hublot And FIFA


Swiss watchmaker Hublot’s involvement in this year’s FIFA World Cup is huge, they are the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch for the event. Hublot also worked on additional football related projects with FIFA, one of them is “Hublot Loves Football”. What do the biggest names in football like Pelé, José Mourinho, Turin’s Juventus, Roy Hodgson, Xherdan Shaqiri and more, have in common apart from playing the legendary sport? All the living football legends, including Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Falcao, Guangzhou Evergrande FC and Amsterdam’s Ajax, have teamed up with Hublot, the Swiss luxury watches manufacturer.


Object of the project is to showcase unique personalities involved in the beautiful game of football. Exceptional portraits captured by Swiss photographer Fred Merz tell a story of relationship between the ambassador and the Hublot team. For instance Pelé, the King of Football “was photographed on a stair landing in a fashionable Ipanema hotel in Rio revealing his kindness and attesting to a strength and fitness extraordinary for his age.”
