We’re not sure we’ve fully grasped just how incredible the World Championships were. The final will go down in history as one of the best ever, and our very own ambassador Leo Messi himself flew home with the trophy, completing football and securing his status as the Greatest of All Time.
Was it the Greatest World Championship of All Time too? Well, we’ll leave that debate to you, but what’s certain is that 250 Socios.com users won fantastic prizes and claimed Fan Rewards galore, including an Argentina jersey signed by Leo Messi and Lautaro Martinez… perhaps that is the Greatest Gift of All Time too!
World Championship Leaderboard
This was an epic one! Thousands of fans took part in our leaderboard, scoring points with every Prediction, Check and attempt at the Free Kick challenge. The whole Socios community was united in the event and it was so great to see 250 prizes being handed out.
The top three prizes:
2: Signed PSG shirt
3: Joao Felix’s signed boot
More incredible Fan Rewards
The Argentina jersey nearly broke the app due to its popular demand, and we had more Fan Rewards from the top drawer in a super month!
Portugal fans had a treat as they were invited to watch South Korea v Portugal at the Casa Dos Atletas, the home of the National Team in Lisbon in what was a brilliant day out and we had more every time Portugal played at the World Championships. Fan Token holders could redeem the official jersey, so five were earned in total.
Besides the Argentina jersey, the following signed items were also bid for:
- Magic Man’s signed PSG shirt
- An AS Monaco jersey signed by Carvalho
- 2 signed Italia jerseys
- 2 Kansas City signed jerseys
Together with race-used equipment too, including
- Bottas’ Miami GP helmet
- Bottas’ balaclavas
- A pair of Bottas’ gloves
- Fireproof underwear
That was one of our biggest Formula 1 giveaways with the NFT 2.0 bundles being created at the end of the racing season.
Yes, the Fan Rewards section was the beating heart of the app during December, and the magic flowed for the entire month.
Four Atletico Madrid Fan Tokens got to experience a training session at the Civitas Metropolitano and met the likes of Koke, Jan Oblak, Marcos Llorente, and more stars … and guess who was on hand to surprise them too? Diego Simeone himself, of course! No pressure! Two $ATM Fan Token holders redeemed this experience on Fan Rewards, while 2 others were lucky quiz winners.
A similar package was redeemed in Indonesia as Persib Bandung fans had a day to remember with their team. In Brazil, Flamengo Fan Token holders also got closer to their team as they saw a Youth Team training session and the last Flamengo TC tour of the year. It is incredible to think just how big an impact owning a $MENGO can have on your life or any Fan Token for that matter.
Christmas cheer in Zagreb
Can you imagine joining the Christmas party of your favourite team? It’s a crazy thought right? Crazy, but possible. 1 $DZG Fan Token holder and their guest got the golden invite, met all the players and spread Christmas cheer!
Polls & Prizes
LA Rams fans had a poll for the ages too as they got the opportunity to pick the design for the endzone for home games. That’s brilliant, and really emphasises the importance of fans in today’s game. Go Rams!
They weren’t alone either as Atlanta Falcon fans had a similar vote with seven lucky fans then getting an invite to head to the stadium to paint the design on! Fly high Falcons!
Staying stateside, Atlanta United held a competition and the prize was huge: a $1000 Team Shop Giftcard, two tickets to the American Family Insurance Cup as well as access to the 2023 Kit Launch. Mouthwatering stuff for any fan!
We now head south to Brazil for our next bit of amazing polls and quizzes.
Brazilian users have a new in-app game for Christmas, with huge prizes including Fan Boxes stuffed with Socios goodies. Meanwhile, Corinthian Fan Token holders have the chance to choose the corner flag in 2023, something Valencia fans are familiar with too, having picked and installed the corner flags for the Mestalla!
All Brazilian users also got to pick the official Player of the Year and Best Gaol for 2022… and the winning players will be awarded with Fan Token trophies.
December in Brazil is fantastic!
Right, looking back to the month of December is always fun, it’s a festive month full of cheer. But, let’s also look forward to a brilliant 2023 – as if it’s anything as fun as 2022, we’d be over the moon! Tune in next month for January’s rewind and keep inspiring us next year fam!
