The CEO Laureate Spain was next to take the floor to show his thanks for Real Madrid: "It’s an honour to be here at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium to present this very important agreement. Two institutions that have been travel companions for more than 10 years with a unique project. Real Madrid is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious institutions in the world and the benchmark of brands in Spain. It's a club of legends that doesn’t need a presentation".
"It’s an agreement in which the brand values we share are key: effort, encouraging motivation and professional growth, honesty, respect, teamwork and winning spirit. It is an alliance that will be present on the court and we are very proud that the players wear the Universidad Europea logo on their shirts. Today we begin a great journey in which we are sure we will enjoy and grow together".
