In aid of footballer Wayne Rooney’s namesake Wayne Rooney Foundation, last month Hublot co-hosted a Testimonial charity match in his honour at Old Trafford Stadium.
On the subject of his Foundation, Rooney affirms to Revolution: “I have been so fortunate in the amazing support and opportunities I’ve had since I was a child.
So many youngsters just don’t get the backing or the chance to achieve goals in life and I felt it was time for me to put something back.”
He continues, “I set up the Wayne Rooney Foundation to run events to raise money for organisations supporting disadvantaged, vulnerable children and young people. Our target is to raise a total of £5million.”
The Manchester United captain goes on to say “Hublot have agreed to become a partner of the Wayne Rooney Foundation and support us in our aim to raise the £5million. It’s really generous of them and I’m delighted that such a prestigious brand will be present at all of our events.”
As a part of this support Hublot has, naturally, produced in collaboration with Rooney a limited edition comprising 67 watches, donating the entire run to the sportsman’s charitable endeavour.
