BOSTON JULY 07TH 2021 – The Boston Celtics today announced their official partnership with Socios.com, allowing the 17-time World Champions to join forces with the leading blockchain provider for the global sports and entertainment industry.
Socios.com will have a digital presence on Celtics.com and serve as the presenting partner of the team’s website, placing it at the forefront of the Celtics’ primary hub for relevant news, updates, video highlights, and information pertaining to the franchise. They will also have the ability to leverage the Celtics marks and logos in connection with various Socios.com international marketing activities.
“A large part of the Celtics brand is made up of the great fans that support the organization across local, national, and global levels, and we’re excited to find a partner that values fan engagement as much as we do,” said Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships & Business Development Ted Dalton. “We’re always looking for innovative ways to reach Celtics fans and look forward to our partnership with Socios.com.”
“The Boston Celtics are an iconic, world-renowned brand and I’m delighted they have become the latest major US-based sporting organization to join our rapidly expanding network,” said Socios.com CEO Alexandre Dreyfus. “Socios.com is fast developing into a global fan engagement powerhouse, where passive fans are being transitioned into active participants. This is the start of an exciting partnership that we believe can eventually lead to greatly enhanced fan engagement for fans of the Celtics around the world.”
Boston Celtics join a 40+ strong network of major sporting organisations who have embraced Socios.com to improve engagement with their global fanbases, including FC Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AC Milan, Manchester City, Atlético Madrid, Valencia CF and the Argentina and Portugal National Teams.
