WHEN THE CAPTAIN OF THE SPAIN WOMEN’S NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM PLAYS FOR HUBLOT
“I am proud to welcome Alexia Putellas into our family. A great footballer of international stature, Alexia’s leadership role goes beyond the playing field and is evident in her commitment to women’s sports and female empowerment. Her relentless pursuit of excellence and performance makes her a perfect addition to the Hublot team.”
Captain of FC Barcelona and of the Spain Women’s National Football Team and two-time World Cup player, Alexia Putellas, born in Mollet del Vallès, Barcelona, in 1994, is Hublot’s new Friend of the Brand. Her prowess when it comes to leadership makes her a force to be reckoned with in the world of women’s football. She was the first woman to score a goal at Camp Nou in an official match and also the first female player to score at the Johan Cruyff Stadium. The Swiss luxury watch brand welcomes this icon of women’s football, who is joining other legendary sportswomen such as Dina Asher-Smith, Ada Hegerberg, Alex Morgan and Corinne Suter.
A superb footballer with unquestionable commitment and a hunger for success, Alexia is a highly valued athlete at both a national and international level. Not only is she passionate about football, she is also strongly committed to supporting women’s sports and society in general.
The FC Barcelona midfielder has a lot in common with Hublot, particularly when it comes to her relentless pursuit of excellence and performance. An icon of the beautiful game since 2012 when she was signed back from Levante at 18 years of age, she is a true trailblazer for the new generation of female athletes.
“I am proud to belong to the Hublot family, which unconditionally supports the world of sport. It is an honour for me to play for the Hublot team in the match of equality and women's empowerment through football.”
With over 300 matches for FC Barcelona under her belt and 91 for Spain, she is the player with the most international caps in the history of Spanish women’s football, having already won four La Liga titles and five Copa de la Reina trophies. On a more personal level, she was named Best Female Catalan Player of 2020 and the 2020/21 UEFA Women’s Player of the Year, becoming the first player for Spain and for Barcelona to receive this title.
But this young midfielder’s prestigious awards and accolades don’t stop there, having also been named MVP at the Marca Awards, MVP of the Copa de la Reina, MVP of the Spanish Women’s Super Cup, and MVP of the 2020 SheBelieves Cup.
The Spanish footballer had a record-breaking season with her team mates at FC Barcelona, winning La Liga, the Copa de la Reina and their first UEFA Champions League, being the player who has played the most matches (53) in this last competition.
Alexia is a woman who seeks new challenges, such as winning the UEFA Women’s Champions League with FC Barcelona, winning the next UEFA Women´s EURO and even the FIFA Women's World Cup with the Spain national team, while doing her bit to lead the way to equality and women’s empowerment through football.
Hublot was the first luxury brand to invest in football, a partnership that began in 2006 and that is strengthened by the shared spirit of perseverance, skill, competition, and the pursuit of excellence.
Hublot has a long history of partnerships with big names in sports and the arts, and sponsors some of the top sporting events, including the FIFA World Cup™, the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA EURO™. Today, the Maison welcomes Spain’s number one female footballer into the wonderful Hublot family.
