SPOAC scholars visit #rmbvb at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in Madrid

Real Madrid hosted Borussia Dortmund in the last group game of the 2017/18 season. From a sports point of view, the match only had little value: Real was already qualified to the final 16 and the BVB was almost secure as the group’s third to move on to the UEFA Euro League. But what the SPOAC scholars were able to experience during their visit of the game was exceptional.

The exchange between the SPOAC and the Real Madrid partner Microsoft was in the focus. The software developer supports the sports club with their digitalization. Pedro Oliveria Cortez de Miranda, Gobal Sports Digital Content Manager at Microsoft, accompanied the participants – and talked about the backgrounds of the partnership between the company and the sports club.

On the next day Real granted the participants a unique view behind the scenes of the traditional Estadio Santiago Bernabéu – including a guided tour through the catacombs of the Spanish record holding champion.
