Congratulations Pele for your Award!Schließen
Hublot is thrilled to congratulate footballs greatest legend, the King, Pelé, for a lifetime of accomplishments and being recognized on Monday, January 13, 2014 for his amazing career!
All Time Top Scorer and 3 World Cup Titles
In 1956, Pelé started his pro career when he decided to join Santos FC. The following season, he became the top scorer in the league and was called up to the Brazil national team at only 17 years old.
In his path to becoming a legend in the sport, Pelé accomplished what no one else had ever done. From 1956 to 1974, Pelé played for Santos FC where he scored 1124 goals and won two intercontinental World Champions trophies. After 18 years playing for Santos FC, he came out of retirement to sign with the New York Cosmos for the 1975–77 seasons where he led the team to the 1977 NASL Championship. As of today, he is the greatest football scorer of all times with 1283 goals.
He remains the only player to this day to have won three World Cup titles (1958, 1962, 1970).
“Hublot Loves Football”
Pelé was appointed as Ambassador of Brazil for the World Cup 2014 and also Hublot Brand Ambassador.
“This is an immense privilege and it fills us with great pride to have been chosen by King Pelé. When he came to see us in Switzerland at the Manufacture last year, we immediately clicked. His energy, his enthusiasm for the next World Cup was simply amazing.
We look forward to doing great things together in Brazil”, jointly stated Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot and Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
And the next step forward is just around the corner. Beginning of February,
we will be honored to unveil our watch making tribute to the best football player of all time.
