The meteoric rise of esports is unlike anything the world has seen before, catapulted onto the world stage in part by its enormous fan base, which is estimated to be half-a-billion fans globally.
This impressive number of fans is set to grow even further, with Business Insider predicting a jump to 600 million consumers by 2023. While this growth is fantastic for esports’ incredibly engaged fan base, supporters are limited to what they can actually influence.
This is not only an issue faced by esports fans alone, but also by sports fans the world over.
Here at Socios.com, we realised that while esports and sports fans get to share their voice and interact over social media and other platforms, they don’t yet get to exert influence over their favorite organisations or clubs.
Socios.com is a mobile-first platform for the sports and entertainment industry that aims to bridge the gap between the teams and their fans; a platform that gives fans voting rights and rewards them with once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Some of you may have already heard of Socios.com, and will have seen the waves we have made as we announced that some of the biggest football clubs in Europe – Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and West Ham United – have partnered with us to offer their fans something entirely unique through our app.
Socios.com is aiming to bring the same level of engagement to esports fans everywhere through partnerships with top esports teams across all major titles as well as content creators on Twitch and YouTube.
Our partner teams will host polls, offering both binding and non-binding votes to fans. Participating in these polls also gets you perks and privileges reserved for app users – including exclusive VIP experiences, prizes, and merchandise that will be available through Socios.com
