When I was a child, I didn’t understand why my grandfather Eustaquio, a baker from Sesma, often went to bed without supper at around 7 pm on Sundays because Osasuna had lost.
The first time I stepped foot in the Sadar, 52 years ago, was in an Osasuna-Málaga second division match that my father took me to. I understood it forever, and I became part of that red and red soul that prefers a rainy Sunday with a victory to a sunny Sunday with a defeat.
And then, I inoculated my children with the virus, and I am ready to repeat it with my grandchildren when they arrive.
Sometimes surpassing those who have much more resources than you, based on grit, talent, heart, collective enthusiasm, and a sense of belonging is unique and priceless.
Tonight we have another chance to do it again against the team with the best record in the world, and there is no doubt that Jagoba and his boys will give their all against Real Madrid.
But before the match, when we enter the pitch, the Osasuna members who wish to do so can also show our faces to open the turnstiles and do it with technology at the forefront of technology—developed entirely in the Talluntxe industrial estate, just a few meters from the Tajonar facilities.
Registration takes just under a minute and only needs to be done once to enter all the matches without carrying anything, no card, no mobile phone; look at the screen so that the system will recognize you, and the turnstile opens in less than a second.
San Juan and the Tennis Club members have been doing this for a long time. And, today, we are doing it with the most important national and international technological leaders in a world as mediatic as football.
It is a small gesture to follow the Club’s instructions and register to be able to enter with our face, but it is essential for a Navarrese company in which we have spent years developing these technologies with which we compete with global giants in the field of Artificial Intelligence.
Thank you to Osasuna, who have given us their support and opened the doors of La Liga and other countries, and thank you to all men and women who have worked tirelessly during all these years, believing that we could achieve it.
Esteban Morrás, President of dasGate.
