Hublot also worked on additional football related projects with FIFA, one of them is “Hublot Loves Football”.

Legendary name list include Pelé, José Mourinho, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Luiz Felipe Scolari, Falcao, Roy Hodgson, Xherdan Shaqiri, Guangzhou Evergrande FC and Amsterdam’s Ajax.
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.”
