September 16th: Socios.com, the world’s leading fan engagement and rewards platform, is pleased to announce that it will be Official Partner of the 2022 Ballon d’Or Awards. Socios.com assumes the title of Official Partner for the second year running.
The Ballon d’Or Awards is the leading individual recognition ceremony in football and has been a mainstay of the world game for 66 years.
The 2022 edition of the event will take place at the glamorous Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris on the evening of October 17th, with stars of the world game, many of whom currently play for Socios.com partner clubs, hoping to walk away with the coveted prize.
The partnership with the Ballon d’Or Awards is a natural brand fit for Socios.com, who have also taken a place at the heart of world football and share the same passion for the beautiful game.
More than 170 major sporting organisations, including many leading football clubs from Europe and Latin America, have partnered with Socios.com to create new experiences and opportunities for their fans through Fan Tokens.
Fan Tokens are digital assets that enable fans to access highly engaged communities where participation in games, club polls, predictors and other features unlocks access to rewards including club merchandise, VIP tickets, and unique, memorable club experiences.
The partnership offers Socios.com valuable brand exposure at one of the most prestigious events in the football calendar.
Socios.com is committed to using this partnership to highlight the benefits of its platform to a global audience with a comprehensive rights and activation plan to include logo on signage at the Théâtre du Châtelet, on both red carpets, and across backdrops for international TV, mixed zone, press conference and hospitality.
Activations designed to shine a light on the benefits of owning Fan Tokens and joining Socios.com’s thriving fan engagement and rewards community will include:
