In this event of great media attention, the Valencian start-up NBN23, linked to the University of Valencia Science Park, has played an important role. The company has digitized the minutes of the game, so that it can be shared live and has monitored by statistics everything that happens in the meeting from the first to the last second.
"This is the first time that we have made the digital record of a professional match. The digital record of NBN23 is really a product designed for amateur players to have the same experience as professionals.
