Hublot and legendary soccer club Manchester United are all set 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 will be open to 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, at 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 are able to make the million dollar goal, Hublot has promised to make a significant contribution towards the cause. The United for UNICEF was created by Manchester United and Hublot 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 not only 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 take place in between the iconic Flatiron and Empire State buildings on 23rd Street and Broadway at 4pm.
