In April 2018, a couple of months prior to the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, we had the honour of working once again with Hublot in the organization of a historical event, the “Match of Friendship 3”, which saw the participation of some of the greatest players in history.
After the gardens of the Palais Royal in Paris and the Hall 4 in Basel, Hublot decided that Dubai was the perfect location to host the two teams coached by Pelé and Marcello Lippi. The five-a-side pitch, in fact, was installed beside the Burj Khalifa, the tallest tower in the world, with a spectacular view of the Dubai Fountain. An unmissable event in a special location, made even better by a truly unique scenario.
The two teams, coached by Pelé and Marcello Lippi, were lined up as following:
PELÉ TEAM – Dida – Serginho – Robbie Keane – Desailly – Hassan.
LIPPI TEAM – Amelia – Materazzi – Zambrotta – Karembeu – Salgado.
Thanks to the participation of some of the world’s greatest players, the event became a day to remember and was able to attract strong media interest worldwide.
