February might be the shortest month of the calendar year, but this didn’t stop it from being an epic one with Socios.com. We’ve helped fans connect with their teams from around the world, in a range of different sports, so check out our fun February.
Racing into a new Formula 1 season
As we gear up for a new Formula 1 season, Fan Token holders were able to pick messaging for the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team™ garage. Earlier this year some fans won tickets to the official car launch and we know that this season is going to be a season like no other.
Touchdown rugby prizes
Harlequins fans will enjoy the ultimate match day with Fan Token holders being able to win a huge prize of 4 hospitality tickets to the Exeter game in March. The first prize even includes a pre-match changing room tour and post-match media shadowing, and they will even walk with the team from Twickenham to the club shop. Saracens Fan Token holders also got to make their mark on their team, picking out LED messaging and scoring VIP experiences too.
Sharks Fan Token holders also had the opportunity to win Sharks fan packs stuffed with goodies. All they had to do was ace a quiz to enter a draw and when the prizes are as big as signed jerseys and balls, we were inundated with participants. Rugby: we’ve landed!
From claiming matchday souvenirs like no other…
These Fan Rewards are simply mouth-watering! Following Inter’s success in the Supercoppa Italiana, two of the game-scored balls were redeemed as Fan Rewards via reverse auctions. They really are match souvenirs like no other, with both Federico Dimarco’s ball and Lautaro Martinez’s now in the safe hands of Inter Fan Token holders.
Over in Indonesia, we had a Socios derby as Persib and Bali United met. Fan Token holders could submit their designs for the official match pennant, and a lucky fan got to claim them as their own after both team captains signed them! From design to claim, it’s exactly the reason fans love holding Fan Tokens.
… to redeeming match tickets
Our Fan Rewards section was particularly pumped in February, with many fans being able to claim tickets to watch their favourite teams play. We had grandstand tickets, VIP tickets and even best-view tickets which flew off the shelf in a busy month. We spotted our Fan Token holders at the home matches of
- Leigia Warsaw
- Inter Milan
- AC Milan
- Atletico de Madrid
- Manchester City
And we loved it! Keep redeeming and sending in your snaps too!
The month of love
Since in February we celebrate love, we thought it fitting to ask our Italian fans to send in poems about their favourite teams. We’ll be honest, we did not expect the results we got. We received epics, mini-stories, rhyming poems and prose… Shakespeare himself would have been proud. Wow, you do really love your teams in Italy, don’t you?
The best poets won a signed shirt and it was almost impossible to pick winners! Thanks to the Inter, Milan, Napoli, Juventus and Roma fans who took part! Keep cheering (and rhyming!)
We’re always looking for the Fan of the Month, so keep an eye out on the Socios.com app for your chance to win a signed jersey every month!
and Carnival celebrations in Brazil
We all know that the Brazilian Carnival is the biggest party in the world, and our Fan Token holders in Brazil had a blast. At Socios.com, we’re all about celebrating and having fun, so we even created our own, and a world-first, SSU Superhero costume! Fans showed their love for Socios in street parties and won Fan Tokens for being creative. They used #botaseutokennarua which literally means, go out with your token! Some say they’re still dancing away!
Staying in Brazil, Bahia and São Paolo fans made their mark on their teams in a fantastic way. Firstly, Bahia Fan Token holders had the opportunity to name a pitch at the training centre. Ronaldo Passos was chosen and the Fan Token holders were invited to participate in the opening ceremony too.
São Paolo Fan Token holders chose the design of a special shirt commemorating the 1992 Intercontinental Cup triumph. After picking the design, some were also invited to attend the match against Santos as VIPs, launching the new kit.
Fans who voted for the winning design could also redeem the shirt and watched a match which had players from the 1992 team, including Ronaldão, Adílson and Marcos Bonequini.
Bring on next month
Yep, if you thought February was amazing, wait till March! We’ve got a special treat lined up for Atletico Madrid fans, more polls, more prizes and even more Fan Rewards! Let’s go!
