Italian football club Juventus have announced the extension of their partnership with the Hublot until 2021. The Swiss luxury watchmaker will continue to be the Official Timekeeper of the club until 2021 – a title it has held since the 2012-13 season.
The deal was announced at a special event held at the Club Gianni and Umberto Agnelli within the team’s Allianz Stadium in the presence of retired French star David Trezeguet, and current Juventus players Miralem Pjanic and Paulo Dybala.
Hublot, on the occasion, presented the club with a new, limited edition stopwatch – the “Classic Fusion Chronograph Juventus” – which is the third branded product the club has received from Hublot over the years.
“Playing for Juventus is as good as it gets for whoever, like ourselves, dreams of becoming a professional footballer from a young age,” said Pjanic and Dybala. “Time has a very important value for us, given we have precious little of it, and we must make the most of our time, spending it with those people dearest to us.”
Trezguet said, “Family, professionalism and humility are the three words that I would use to describe. I am very happy to have been a part of this club for many years on the pitch and to represent the Bianconeri to this day on trips around the world.”
Giorgio Ricci, Co-Chief Revenue Officer, Head of Global Partnerships and Corporate Revenues at Juventus, said, “We are proud to announce the renewal of our partnership with Hublot for another three seasons. There are so many victories that we have celebrated together and we are certain that the dedication we put into our work every day, both on and off the pitch, will make the difference in the future because, thanks to the constant attention to detail and improvement sought through careful research, it is possible to make complex movements and mechanisms seem simple.”
“Hublot has accompanied us for many events over the past six years and we are delighted to be continuing this adventure together.”
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot said, “I am proud to be here this evening in this temple of football. It is our company philosophy to be different and unique. For that reason, we are very happy to be a Partner of Juventus, the most successful club in Italy and one of the greatest in the world, who are always looking towards the future. Hublot loves football. Forza Juve, Fino Alla Fine!”
