On March 21st at Baselworld, after unveiling its watch 100% dedicated to the FIFA World Cup 2018, Hublot brought together an array of legendary sportsmen.
An enthusiastic crowd was able to watch two one-off teams engage in a Match of Friendship organised in Hall 4, transformed into a football pitch for this occasion.
Under coach Diego Maradona, sportsmen Tino Asprilla, Roberto Carlos, Hernan Crespo, Gianni Infantino, Christian Karembeu, Marco Materazzi, Gaizka Mendieta, Angelo Peruzzi, and David Trezeguet faced José Mourinho’s team composed of Usain Bolt, Vitor Baía, Stéphane Chapuisat, Marcel Desailly, Damien Duff, Robbie Keane, Patrick Kluivert, Richard Orlinski and Alexei Smertin.
At the end of the game, the spirit and contagious energy of football was kept alive with the Cuban group Orishas who set the pitch alight, before DJ Teddy-O – another friend of the brand – spun the decks to produce his mix for the evening.
