ON SOCIOS.COM ON AUGUST 21ST
- The CHIVAS Fan Token will allow the club’s fans around the world to connect and engage with the team in a more active way, participate in fan-related decisions through Fan Polls and earn exclusive rewards and once-in-a-life-time experiences.
AUGUST 10TH. C.D. Guadalajara, 12-time champion of Mexico’s Liga MX, will be launching its official Fan Token CHIVAS on the Socios.com fan engagement and rewards app on August 21st.
The Club, popularly known as Chivas, will join football powerhouses across the globe such as Manchester City, FC Internazionale, Paris Saint-Germain, FC Barcelona, Palmeiras and Flamengo, amongst others, all of which are already using this innovative digital tool to engage and reward their fans.
50.000 CHIVAS Fan Tokens will be made available at 1$ via a Fan Token Offering (FTO®) that will kick off at 12pm local time (8pm CET), with purchases being capped at 100 CHIVAS during the first 24 hours to ensure as many fans as possible can access this unique opportunity.
The CHIVAS Fan Token will give Chivas fans the chance to participate in team decisions by voting in Fan Polls on official merch designs, in-stadium celebration songs and other fan-related topics. Fans will also be able to enjoy special discounts and promotions and earn exclusive rewards for their loyalty.
Immediately after the FTO® kicks off, the first Fan Poll will be launched on Socios.com. Fans owning at least one (1) CHIVAS Fan Token will be able to vote to decide how the next home goal scored by El Rebaño will be celebrated at Estadio AKRON. Fans will be able to choose if they want to see a fire show, a smoke show or sparkles behind the goal.
A few days later a new Fan Poll will be launched, giving Fan Token holders the chance to choose which player will be featured in the next episode of Raíces, a popular show aired on ChivasTV.
One (1) CHIVAS Fan Token will be enough to vote on all the polls launched by the club and to take part in Socios.com’s multiple Chivas-themed features, but the more CHIVAS Fan Tokens owned, the higher the influence and the more chances to earn rewards.
Socios.com is a gamified and EngageToEarn platform packed with club-themed features, including predictors, check-ins, trivia quizzes and games where fans can enjoy their passion for their team and share it with other fans across the world. Each time users engage with these features they are rewarded with XP points and SSU loyalty tokens which they can redeem for a wide range of rewards, from signed products to VIP tickets and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Web3 products, in general, and Fan Tokens in particular are redefining the way fans connect with their favourite teams, especially the younger generations. As a recent Deloitte report revealed, around 40% of Gen Z and Millennial sports fans are very, or somewhat, familiar with the use of Fan Tokens in sport, and almost 75% express interest in Fan Tokens providing chances to win valuable rewards.
Socios.com, the pioneer Fan Token platform, is an official partner to over 100 sporting organisations worldwide across multiple sport verticals and currently hosts a global digital community of 2 million users across 160 different countries. Socios.com Fan Tokens are currently not available to purchase in the US.

Santiago Montes, Innovation and Digital Business Manager of CD Guadalajara, said: “We are very excited to launch the CHIVAS Fan Token. This tool will allow us to bring our local and our global fans closer than ever to the club and reward them for their invaluable loyalty in exciting and innovative ways.”
“At Chivas we are firm believers in the power of innovation and technology in general and blockchain in particular, as we recently showed with the successful launch of the women’s team NFT collection. The CHIVAS Fan Token is a new and exciting step into the world of Web3, which we are sure will open multiple opportunities for the Club and its fans.”
