At the start of November La Liga giants Real Madrid and tech behemoth Adobe teamed up to introduce fans to a new set of hyper-personalised experiences, NFTs, metahumans, and synthetic media in a partnership which aims to further ‘Ignite The Passion’.
The aim of the collaboration is to personalise fans experiences and drive deeper engagement and the initiative was promoted via a PR push and a video led social-first campaign running across both sponsor and club online platforms.
The introductory video, called ‘Real Madrid Ignites The Passion Of Hundreds Of Millions Of Global Digital Fans’, launched on 9 November across both team and sponsor social platforms.

Adobe International President Paul Robson added: “Using Adobe Experience Cloud, Real Madrid will be able to share personalised fan content in real-time and at scale, accelerating its mission to become a global entertainment brand. By taking the electrifying emotion that fans enjoy in the stadium and translating it into immersive digital experiences, the club will be able to build even closer connections with its worldwide fanbase.”
