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. An international award that stands out doubly, since it reflects the preference of the public and fans and because it can only be won once. This prestigious prize was introduced in 2003 by Mr. Caliendo, a former player agent - he managed the Maradona or Trezeguet quarries. His vision? Give voice to football fans.

It is indeed them, and not a panel of journalists or professionals as in the case of other football awards, who choose the best player.

The Vox Populi spoke: Iker Casillas was voted by the best player of the year! This victory is all the more remarkable as Casillas is goalkeeper. This award crowns an exceptional career: the 36-year-old Spaniard has an incomparable record. To his credit, he has three leagues of champions with Real Madrid and two Euro and a World Cup with the Spanish selection. At a ceremony held on November 6th and 7th at the Hotel Le Méridien in Monaco in the presence of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, Iker Casillas was awarded his Hublot Golden Award, as well as a Hublot Big Bang watch.

"Among all the titles and awards I received during my career, the Hublot Golden Foot touches me particularly! It's the fans who voted! I thank them from the bottom of my heart. 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! "

Iker Casillas, winner of the 2017 Golden Foot Hublot Launched in 2005, this iconic model carries the reasons for its success. Recognizable among all thanks to its case tightened by visible screws, the Big Bang is equipped with the chronograph movement HUB4100 visible by its transparent bottom. Its 44 mm diameter and black rubber strap further enhance its visual impact. The bestseller of Hublot! It should also be noted that the Hublot Golden Foot organization has celebrated the career of other legends by awarding them an honorary award. Among them, Oliver Kahn, the legendary German goalkeeper; the former player and current coach of the -20 team of China Li Ming; world champion Marcel Desailly and outstanding striker Michael Owen and Italian international coach Roberto Mancini.
