On Monday, July 25, luxury watchmaker Hublot and legendary soccer club Manchester United will team up for an elegant evening, in aid of the Manchester United Foundation.
During their five city US tour, Manchester United will attend the dinner at the iconic Cipriani Wall Street. All the players – including Chicharito, Michael Owen, Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand, Nani and manager Sir Alex Ferguson – will participate in the ‘Art of Fusion Fashion Show’ showing off the latest timepieces from Hublot.
“We love working with Manchester United: they are extremely creative and concrete in their partnership approach and, like we do at Hublot, strongly believe in sharing and giving,” said Hublot’s Jean-Claude Biver.
Manchester United and Hublot have already collaborated on 3 watches, the latest of which – the King Power Red Devil – has grass from the hallowed turf of Old Trafford Stadium embedded in the indexes.
Following the runway show, a live auction that will include Sir Alex Ferguson’s Hublot Fusion timepiece, along with various Manchester United collectibles, will be held. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Manchester United Foundation, which strives to improve the lives of children and young people around the World.
“Through the power of Football, Manchester United Foundation will develop our youngsters so that they are able to acquire qualities which will remain with them through life – being positive, believing in themselves, working hard and recognizing the importance of team work. These are all attributes which I instill every day in our players,” said Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Foundation works with some of the world’s most disadvantaged youngsters using football to change their young lives for the better. It delivers football coaching, education, skills training, personal development and life changing experiences, providing children and young people with opportunities to develop their true potential.
