Socios.com launched in late 2019. To date, 18 major sporting organisations, including FC Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain have partnered with Socios.com in order to launch Fan Tokens . 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 and the Professional Fighters League (PFL). We expect Fan Tokens to become the next generation of transactional based engagement for sports fans.
