Hublot Official Watch of the UEFA Nations League Finals
Following the UEFA Champions League, the Europa League and the Euros, Hublot adds this new European competition to its many football partnerships.
Hublot loves football and now counts the UEFA Nations League Finals among its many football partnerships. With the UEFA Champions League, the Europa League and the Euros, its clubs – Chelsea, Juventus and Benfica - and its football stars – Mbappé, Pelé and Mourinho - Hublot has made Europe and football its playground. On the pitch, the watchmaker will lead the game with its famous boards of the same design as its watches and used by the 4th official to show extra time and player substitutions.
The UEFA Nations League Finals is a biennial competition that involves all League A national European teams. On 24th of January 2018, a random draw by the UEFA premier Nations League created 16 groups, spreading the 55 countries that are part of UEFA among 4 divisions - A, B, C, and D. An inclusive measure that allows smaller European nations to play in challenging matches and progress in the rankings - as after each edition the ranking per division is revised with a promotion and relegation system. After this first event, 4 countries have therefore won their place and will rejoin division A during the next edition of the UEFA Nations League: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Sweden and Ukraine. Whereas, Germany, Croatia, Iceland and
Poland have been relegated to division B.
From 5th to 9th of June, in Portugal, the 4 winners of the pools from League A - England, the Netherlands, Portugal and Switzerland - come face to face for a final game, the winner of which will be crowned "UEFA Nations League Champion". The first semi-final between Portugal and Switzerland was held on 5th of June at the Dragon Stadium in Porto and ended in a 3-1 win for the Portuguese team, thanks to a hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo. The second semi-final between Netherlands and England was held at the D. Alfonso Henriques Stadium in Guimarães and saw the victory of Netherlands after extra-time on the same 3-1 score. On Sunday 9th of June, Portugal and Netherlands will compete to become the first national team to hold the trophy (20:45, D. Alfonso Henriques Stadium, Guimarães), while Switzerland will face England in the third-place play-off (15:00, Dragon Stadium, Porto).
Another bonus offered by the UEFA Nations League competition is the four qualifying places, one for each League, including D, for the 2020 Euros - a competition Hublot has partnered with since 2008. It also has to be noted that the brand is also the Official Watch of the FIFA Women's World Cup in France, that begun on 7th June and will end on 7th of July.
From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand, which is currently headed by Ricardo Guadalupe - its CEO since 2012, to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more >
