BBVA Helping Real Madrid Offer Interest-Free Season Ticket Payment Plans
Real Madrid has opened its period for season ticket renewals with "an important new change for its fans and season-ticket holders," according to Carlos M. Sánchez of EL CONFIDENCIAL. Through June 21, fans buying tickets will be able to finance payments without paying interest as part of an "important aid for fans through an agreement reached with BBVA" bank. BBVA will allow those buying tickets to request a "Real Madrid-BBVA" card to finance payments over three, six or 10 months, with each of these plans available without interest. The bank will also offer insurance for ATM thefts or accidents. Real Madrid President Florentino Pérez has reached this agreement to "ease his fan base's continued loyalty as fans and season-ticket holders." Real Madrid "is aware of the country's economic circumstances and financing without interest is a more comfortable option for fans that want to continue their connections to the club" (EL CONFIDENCIAL, 6/6).
