Eurostar Group will have exclusive rights to sell the blue and white cans decorated in the Spanish La Liga team’s colours and baring its emblem.

Real Madrid has the largest annual revenue of any football club in the world and is the second most valuable, worth US$2.35bn.

UAE residents consumed 16.1m litres of energy drinks last year, worth US$122m, according to Eurostar.
