We’ve got good news for our growing rugby community as we’re opening up our most popular features to rugby teams on the Socios.com app. Now, you can check-in to rugby matches, submit score predictions and also hunt for free Fan Tokens using the Token Hunt game.
We currently collaborate with five Rugby teams and using these features makes it easier to score XP, to level up your profile and bag SSU Loyalty Tokens.
Read on to discover how you can use the three features below:
What is our check-in feature?
When your favourite Rugby team kicks off, you’ll be able to check into the match on the Socios.com app and tell your followers where you’re watching the game from. While checking in you can also leave a comment, perhaps kicking off some pre-match debate!
What is our prediction feature?
Predicting the score is always fun and something all sports fans do, even when they don’t publish their bold predictions. Well, now you’ll be able to predict rugby scores too and get points based on your prediction. So, if you guess the correct winner, you’ll get points, and if you get the score ratio locked in also, you’ll bag maximum points. These XP will help you level up your profile and get SSUs!
What is Token Hunt?
One of the most popular and used features on the Socios.com app is Token Hunt. Token Hunt allows users to find free tokens, every single day.
When you use Token Hunt, you’ll be able to find three types of tokens: SSU Loyalty Tokens, Fan Tokens or Chiliz. When you tap the Token Hunt feature at the bottom of your screen, you’ll be taken to a map view of your current location. There, you’ll see up to five chests. Tap each chest to reveal what’s inside, and add that new token to your wallet. It is a brilliant way to engage and keep your wallet topped up. SSU Loyalty Tokens are vital for redeeming Fan Rewards, and since they are earned, not bought, you’ll do well to stack them up daily using Token Hunt.
Which team’s Fan Tokens can you find?
We’ve got themed hunts for you to try, and one is specially dedicated to Rugby. Try the Crouch, Set, Find hunt to find Fan Tokens from our Rugby partners, which are:
- Leicester Tigers
- The Sharks
- Stade Français Paris Rugby
