Real Madrid have announced that they’ve reached an agreement to extend their partnership with medical supplier Sanitas.
Real Madrid and Sanitas have renewed their collaboration agreement for the next three seasons, up until the 2023/24 campaign. Club president Florentino Pérez and the CEO of Santias and Bupa for Europe and Latin America, Iñaki Peralta, signed the agreement in a ceremony held at Real Madrid City. The link-up will see the company, which specialises in health and well-being services, continue to offer our players medical assistance.
Sanitas provides the members of the football and basketball first teams all of the benefits that digital medicine offers in terms of health, including access to a video consultancy service with over 30 medical experts and the measurement of vital signs via the mobile phone. The company provides Real Madrid with comprehensive health assistance, the leading medical professionals and diagnostic testing, as well as the main technological and assistance developments that place the company at the forefront of sports medicine.
In reference to the agreement, Peralta stated that: “It’s a privilege to offer the best male and female players in the world with digital medicine services. We’ve been the club’s official medical provider for the past two decades and we therefore feel as if we’ve played a small part in the successes that Real Madrid have had in this time and those that I’m sure lie ahead”.
Sanitas has been Real Madrid’s medical sponsor/supplier for quite some time and while they get the blame for the team’s big amount of injuries in recent years, they just allow Real Madrid to use their facilities —more on Sanitas will be published in another piece in Managing Madrid—.
