The “Blues” are now on Hublot time! The Swiss watch brand has become the Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the prestigious Chelsea Football Club. They are the reigning English Premier League champions, and one of the most successful clubs in England. They are also part of the very small circle of clubs, along with Ajax Amsterdam, Bayern Munich and Juventus – all 3 Hublot partners – to have won all 3 European cups.
The partnership was announced following the first league game of the new season at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, and will see Hublot develop a visible presence in the stadium on the LED score display screens, as well as through the numerous clocks installed in key areas around the site.
It is an honour and a privilege for the Swiss watch brand to team up with this club boasting such a great record of success. There is much more to link Hublot and Chelsea than the fact that they are both among the elite in their fields. They share the same values: an authentic passion in their respective fields, commitment to perfection and technical precision.
Chelsea FC plays at Stamford Bridge, and the team is managed by José Mourinho, who has been a Hublot Ambassador since 2014.
Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO, commented: “It is an honour for us to welcome the iconic Chelsea FC to the Hublot family. What could be more natural for us than to team up with one of the best clubs in England, which furthermore is managed by a Hublot Ambassador and friend, José Mourinho? We wish the club all the best for the 2015 – 2016 season.”
Christian Purslow, Managing Director of Chelsea Football Club declared: “Thanks to this partnership, Hublot is continuing to reinforce its presence in the world of top-class football. We are delighted that Hublot is joining Chelsea Football Club’s group of world-class partners. As the first luxury brand to invest in football back in 2006, Hublot has an illustrious history and reputation, and shares our values and a commitment to excellence. We look forward to working closely together around the globe as we continue to develop our respective businesses.”
