Cristiano Ronaldo becomes TAG Heuer ambassador
One of the most succesful soccer players Cristiano Ronaldo joins TAG Heuer as ambassador.
Two time Ballon d’Or winner, the Real Madrid superstar and captain of the Portugal team for the coming World Cup in Brazil, Ronaldo has joined TAG Heuer in an illustrious roster of other sports stars such as Mario Sharapova, Jenson Button and Sebastien Ogier. Former members included legendary names such as Tiger Woods, Aryton Senna, Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton.
“TAG Heuer is by far the best at what it does,” said Cristiano Ronaldo, “and has been for more than 150 years. No other luxury brand has such strong ties to the highest levels of sports. It is incredibly glamorous yet also so unconventional, and we share exactly the same determination: to totally change the game, push the limits and make our own rules. It is a great honor to be a part of such a powerful and pioneering legacy.”
“Every TAG Heuer creation celebrates intense life in the contemporary arena, and no individual represents this more powerfully than Cristiano,” said TAG Heuer CEO Stéphane Linder. “Like TAG Heuer, Cristiano demands perfection and pushes himself harder than anyone in his domain. This is the first time we enter the world of football, and it’s a perfect fit to do that with Cristiano, opening a new trend and a new way to engage with our fans. Sports is part of our tradition because we share the same values: self motivation and discipline, pushing one’s limit, never giving up. We’ve been in the sports world since signing on as official chronograph of the 1920 Olympic Games. We started timing ski events in 1928, Formula One and regatta racing in the 1970s. Adding football alongside our longstanding link to motorsports, especially with its number 1 icon and most powerful player, is incredibly exciting.”
