Benfica eagles are joining Hublot’s football squad
Estádio da Luz, Lisbon, 27 April 2017 – The “Reds”, led by coach Rui Vitoria, are getting in step with Hublot time. Hublot has become the Official Timekeeper of the most successful Portuguese club, winner of 77 trophies. Over its 113 years, the club has won 35 Portuguese league titles, 25 Portuguese Cups, 7 League Cups, 6 Super Cups and 2 Champions League titles. Benfica is the only club to have won all of the domestic competitions in 2013/14. As well as being the European club with the most supporters, it’s also the most popular Portuguese club, holding the world record for the most members, at more than six million. Holder of the Portuguese League Cup and League title, the club has finished each season since 2010 as winner or runner-up in the Liga NOS, the Portuguese top flight.
Founded in 1904 by a group of football lovers and former pupils, the small club from Lisbon has come a long way. This club of legends and traditions, nicknamed “O Glorioso” in homage to its success and prizes, now sees its Águia Vitória eagle, which soars over the “Stadium of Light” before each home match, come to rest on the Classic Fusion Chrono “SPORT LISBOA BENFICA”. Legend has it that if the eagle flies around the ground twice before landing on the club’s shield, Benfica will win the match. On benfiquistas’ wrists, at the heart of the “Cathedral” and in all benfiquista homes around the world – SL Benfica has supporters’ clubs and in many different countries – victories are measured in Hublot time.
