Just hours after lifting a tenth Coppa Italia at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico, the Bianconeri stopped off in Switzerland where they paid a visit to Hublot, official timekeeper of Juventus.
A group comprising Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci, Giorgio Chiellini, Patrice Evra, Fernando Llorente and Paul Pogba made the trip to the luxury watch-making brand’s headquarters in Nyon earlier on Thursday. President Andrea Agnelli, who was also in the city for UEFA meetings, dropped by to greet both Hublot and the Serie A champions.
Upon arrival, the players were welcomed by Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe before then taking kick-off in a children’s friendly match, which was overseen by Michel Pont.
Later on in the afternoon, the stars were able to experience the manufacturing experts' work at close hand, exploring the stages it takes them to create such products as the Big Bang Chrono Unique Bi-retrograde.
Hublot, who have been in partnership with Juventus since August 2012, have collaborated closely alongside FIFA and UEFA for the World Cup and European Championship tournaments. The company also enjoys commercial associations with Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Ajax.
