Hublot and legendary soccer club Manchester United are all set to recreate the euphoria of the recent FIFA World Cup through an outdoor event to benefit UNICEF. The event is slated to be held on 22nd July in New York and open to the public. Professional players Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs, Nani, Darren Fletcher, Michael Owen, and the manager Sir Alex Ferguson will attempt to hit a target “masked” as a giant Hublot watch from 51 feet the event. For every successful goal, Hublot will donate $1 million to United for UNICEF. A unique way to raise funds, even if none of the professional players can make the million-dollar goal, Hublot has promised to contribute significantly to the cause. Manchester United and Hublot created the United for UNICEF through their foundation, the Manchester United Foundation, which aims to educate, motivate, and inspire young people to build a better life for themselves and their communities.
The event will generate funds and be a source of entertainment for fans; it will also help spread awareness about the cause of this foundation. The event will occur between the iconic Flatiron and Empire State buildings on 23rd Street and Broadway at 4 pm.
