Two world’s most recognizable brands in sport and technology, Real Madrid and Microsoft continued their collaboration by releasing the official Real Madrid app for Windows Phone 8.1. The app offers a lot of features from watching games, to tracking club’s statistics.
Last year, Real Madrid signed a four-year deal with Microsoft to use Redmond company’s modern technology to modernize the organization of the club and the way the team plays football. Before releasing the official app, Microsoft provided club’s coaches and players with Surface Pro 3 tablets in order to help them to analyze their plays and plays of their opponents and play the better football. And now Microsoft will help the club to connect with their fans by releasing this app for Windows Phone 8.1 and other platforms.
The official Real Madrid app offers a lot of features to the fans. The app includes tools to watch replays from the team’s recent games, watch the highlights of the recent matches, get exclusive access to Real Madrid TV (subscription needed) with HD support, track the team’s statistics in real time, read news, watch official videos, check out the team’s fixtures in all competitions, and the quick access to Real Madrid’s store.
You can download the app for free from Windows Phone store, or directly from your device. It will arrive on Windows 8/8.1 PCs in the near future, before eventually comes to users of Windows 10 Technical Preview as an universal app.
This is not only football-related app for Windows platforms, as MLS recently released its official app, MLS MatchDay for Windows. But we shouldn’t expect the release of FC Barcelona’s official app (at least not by Microsoft), because Barcelona is Real Madrid’s biggest rival, and Microsoft’s collaboration with them would probably break the deal.
