Real Madrid launches new stadium megastore

Spanish football giant Real Madrid CF has partnered with Legends to manage all of its merchandise operations.

Real Madrid announced an expansive omnichannel retail program, inclusive of an all-new official online store, the relaunch of three official stores in Madrid, and a new Flagship Megastore at the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.

This new partnership between Legends and Real Madrid will further develop relationships with fans and deliver a seamless and integrated experience that truly represents the Real Madrid brand across all online and retail physical touchpoints, the club said.

It will also play an important role in the commercial growth and brand development strategy of the club, where Legends and Real Madrid share the same vision for delivering a modern omnichannel experience.

The Real Madrid Flagship Megastore will open its doors as part of the ongoing state-of-the-art transformation of the Estadio Santiago Bernabéu, and will be a revolutionary shopping experience for Socios, Madridistas, local, and international fans visiting the stadium.

Later this year, Real Madrid will open an interim Megastore at the stadium, which boasts two floors on the south side of the stadium.

With exclusive product assortments, customisation stations, and a new range of leisurewear and team products, accessories, and the widest selection of Real Madrid technical product, the Megastore will provide a one-of-a-kind experience for fans.

Additionally, Legends will reopen three Real Madrid official stores in downtown Madrid, with the latest Real Madrid kit and training wear, adult and kids’ apparel, footballs, scarves, gifts, and more.

The official team stores are in El Carmen, Gran Via, and Arenal, with additional official stores located in Barcelona and Mexico.

E-commerce

As part of the club’s international growth strategy, the new official online store will include premium and exclusive Real Madrid merchandise for fans of all ages.

The e-commerce platform will be available in eight different languages and features innovative design elements, an exceptional user experience, and will serve fans around the world.

The new official online store is innovative, leveraging modern technology and infrastructure to allow Real Madrid to integrate e-commerce experiences directly into any of its digital channels.

The official online store is a key pillar in Real Madrid’s digital strategy that puts the fan experience squarely at the centre of the business.

A true omnichannel experience is a fundamental part of the strategy, and the partnership with Legends takes a major step toward the vision of a comprehensive shopping experience, online and in stores, for all Socios, Madridistas, and fans around the world to find their favourite official products. The comprehensive retail programme will promote relevant offers in a seamless purchase experience, whenever and where ever fans go to engage with the team.

The comprehensive retail platforms will offer the latest assortment of fan gear, kits, headwear, customized products, authenticated memorabilia, and accessories at the stadium, online, and at official stores. Legends International and Legend Global Merchandise will leverage the Legends comprehensive service solution platform to deliver this omnichannel retail experience on a global basis.
