The $YBO Fan Token sale will be the fifth in a series of six Fan Token offerings in six days on Socios.com, with İstanbul Başakşehir, esports organisations Team Alliance and NAVI and Novara Calcio all also launching their Fan Tokens on the platform.
Additional Socios.com partners include FC Barcelona, Atlético de Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AS Roma, Galatasaray, Trabzonspor, Apollon Limassol, CA Independiente, Universidad de Chile, Novara Calcio and esports organisations Team Heretics and OG.

Wanja Greuel, CEO of BSC Young Boys, said: “We are very happy to see that our innovation strategy is becoming more effective.
“During the YB Hackathon, an event where software developers, IT-students and start-ups meet to solve a predefined challenge in 24 hours, two arcade game protoypes were created. YB wants to create new experiences and services for all fans and partners. Now we can use Socios.com to hear the voice of our fans and let them decide which game we should integrate into our new YB-App.”
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO and founder of Chiliz and Socios.com, said: “It’s great to have Young Boys onboard as our first Swiss club. The opening poll is super cool, with supporters being given the chance to choose a new fan-designed game for their official app.
“$YBO Fan Tokens will take engagement to the next level, giving fans voting rights in polls, the chance to connect with other fans around the world in chat forums, access to games, quizzes, exclusive promotions, VIP rewards and more.”

Socios.com launched in late 2019. To date, 18 major sporting organisations, including FC Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have partnered with Socios.com in order to launch Fan Tokens . Fan Tokens are digital assets that provide owners with engagement opportunities, such as voting rights, the ability to compete in leaderboards and forthcoming features including Chat and Games. Fan Tokens also enable holders to earn club-related rewards, as well as discounts and other benefits linked to their clubs and club sponsors – a USP boosted by the launch of the Socios.com ‘I Am More Than A Fan’ VISA Debit Card. Dozens more organisations from football and other sports are primed to launch Fan Tokens before the end of 2020, with many more IP holders set to join the Socios.com roster of partners which already includes MMA giants UFC and the Professional Fighters League (PFL). We expect Fan Tokens to become the next generation of transactional based engagement for sports fans.
