BBVA decided to enter the world of sports sponsorship, and particularly football and basketball, because it provides a means of creating a relationship with millions of people all over the planet.

La tecnología está dando pasos gigantes en el cambio del mundo. De la salud a la medicina, en las finanzas y en los propios hábitos de la sociedad.
