News just dropped that Kylian Mbappé has become a Hublot ambassador. Hublot is no stranger to football, having been the “Official Timekeeper” of FIFA for the World Cup in South Africa, and the two following football World Cups, in Brazil in 2014 and in Russia in 2018.
In becoming a Hublot ambassador, the Paris Saint-Germain forward is the first current footballer to represent the brand. It’s an exciting moment not just for Kylian but also for Hublot, as it continues to demonstrate its love for the world game.
“In becoming a Hublot ambassador, Kylian joins the legends of football, and King Pelé in particular. These two men have both recently displayed their common values on social networks. Welcoming Kylian Mbappé into our family conveys a powerful message. The fusion of time, the power of dreams and passion, the magic of a sport; all of which are values an athlete inspires. When you meet Kylian he is, first and foremost, a good person; a man who embodies the future and all that it holds in store. Being able to bring together Pelé, the patriarch of our Hublot Family, and Kylian, our youngest-ever ambassador, is just one of those unique moments in life, an instant where time stands still to mark history forever.” Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot
Hublot’s love for football now transcends the history of the sport. Hublot has had a long association with football and Pelé, and now has the chance to work with one of the greats of this generation. Pelé was so enthralled with Kylian’s performance during the 2018 World Cup that he arranged to meet the French national team player. Saying that it made him want to “dust off my football boots and join him on the pitch”.
