We are very proud and happy to partner with Hublot, the first fine watchmaking brand in football, to bring this love for the beautiful game to Singapore,” said Michael Tay, group managing director of The Hour Glass.

The pop-up space is shaped like a pentagon, the shape of one of the 12 panels on a regular football. There are several football-themed areas with different activities for visitors.
