Microsoft and Real Madrid CF will announce major partnership on Tuesday
Microsoft will livestream a press event from the Santiago Bernabeu stadium in Madrid, Spain on Tuesday, where the company will announce a new and major partnership with the Real Madrid CF soccer team.
The event will happen at 6:30 pm Madrid time (1:30 pm Eastern time). Officially, Microsoft says of the announcement, "A digital transformation is coming to the world of soccer (or as it's more commonly known worldwide, futbol) that will change the game for millions of fans." However, Forbes is reporting, via unnamed sources, that this is a four-year deal between Microsoft and Real Madrid, adding:
Forbes estimates that the partnership will be worth about $40 million. Microsoft already has a $400 million multi-year deal with the National Football League that, among other things, gives the American football team access to special Surface Pro 2 tablets on the field. Is this new Microsoft-Real Madrid agreement going to help bring more fans to the company?

The worldwide word is Football! I'm sorry you guys have a sport called by the same name, that the rest of the world doesn't care, but at least you guys could try to wrote articles that suited both sides.
You guys should write Football bought times, and make it clear at the beginning of the article, which one are you addressing, American Football or Football (soccer), but treat any of the sports equally, otherwise you are just upsetting your readers.
