Spanish soccer giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have renewed their sponsorship deals with Canon Medical, the Japanese medical equipment company, until 2025.
Under the five-year extensions, the company will continue in its role as a global partner of Barcelona and the official diagnostic imaging partner of Real Madrid.
Canon Medical teamed up with Real Madrid in 2016 and has worked closely with the team to carry out diagnostic tests on their players, as well as those on the club’s basketball team and academy.
