BARCELONA, Tuesday October 27th: FC Barcelona are asking fans to help choose the playlist for this season by letting them select the songs to be played in the Camp Nou as the team begin their pre-match warm up and as they return to the pitch after half-time on blockchain-based fan voting and rewards app Socios.com.
Fans can use $BAR Fan Tokens, digital assets that provide voting rights and the opportunity to earn rewards linked to the club, to vote for the songs they think will inspire the team in 2 separate polls on Socios.com from today until November 03rd. The winning song choices will be revealed when the club takes on Real Betis on Saturday November 07th
Con Altura — Rosalia, J Balvin
Alone, Pt. II — Alan Walker, Ava Max
Watermelon Sugar — Harry Styles
Chantaje — Shakira
Dynamite — BTS
Blinding Lights — The Weeknd
Barcelona initially launched their $BAR Fan Token back in June with 600,000 selling out in less than 2 hours, generating revenues of €1.2M.
Barcelona fans have already voted to place a unique piece of fan-designed artwork in the home dressing room and will have many more opportunities to vote in club polls through Socios.com this season. $BAR Fan Token holders can also look forward to additional engagement opportunities with Games, Chat and a Leaderboard feature — allowing fans to compete to become the number one fan in their region/country — set to launch on the app.
Socios.com Fan Token partners also include Atlético de Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, AS Roma, Galatasaray, Trabzonspor, CA Independiente, Apollon Limassol and esports organisations Team Heretics and OG. The Professional Fighters League (PFL) recently announced their plans to become the first professional sports league to launch a Fan Token on Socios.com, while Young Boys of Bern and Belgian side STVV will launch Fan Tokens in the near future. Many more clubs are set to launch Fan Tokens before the end of the year, with leading IPs from sports and entertainment also primed to join the Socios.com roster.

Socios.com launched in late 2019. To date, 11 major sporting organisations, including FC Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have launched Fan Tokens on Socios.com. 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. We expect Fan Tokens to become the next generation of transactional based engagement for sports fans.
