A public tribute, a player chosen by the fans. For the second time, Hublot is committed to the Golden Club organization and its president and founder Antonio Caliendo, in order to accompany this "democratic" prize to make it the equivalent of a new "Golden Ball". For the fifteenth time, the best footballers in the world have made an appointment in Monaco, invited by S.A.S. Prince Albert II of Monaco, for the presentation of the Golden Foot Hublot.

Thanks also to the organization Golden Foot and Hublot to give fans the opportunity to express themselves. They are the ones who make the magic of football! "
