Socios Rewind: May, a month of memories

Champions were crowned, awards were handed out and curtains were drawn on football seasons which gave us more ups and downs than your average roller coaster. May is always a fun one, and for Fan Token holders, it proved to be a month of memories, from F1 to football via esports… check out our month of May.

Monaco GP VIP tickets

The Monaco Grand Prix is always a season highlight. It’s iconic and always delivers drama. The unique dizzying bends make it one of the most complicated races of the season, where only the best overtaking experts can shine. 

Tickets for this race as hard to come across, but AS Monaco gave Fan Token holders an opportunity to score VIP tickets for qualifying. It’s the type of cross-over sporting activity we love to see, as two super sports combine in the wonderful principality. 

Picking Zhou Guanyu’s Birthday Present

On May 30th, Zhou Guanyu celebrated his 24th birthday, so we had to celebrate it in a style!

Fans got to pick out a gift for him and submitted their birthday messages via the app. $SAUBER Fan Token holders also picked out his birthday card, wishing him many happy returns and more phenomenal races. Check out what we got him here!

We immortalized Ademi Arijan’s Dinamo Zagreb career

Ademi Arijan played his last match for Dinamo Zagreb last Sunday 19th of March. He was Dinamo’s captain for more than a decade and became the club’s most decorated player.

As he left Dinamo Zagreb, we thought of celebrating his career by launching a limited-edition Digital Collectible. Only 373 were made, reflecting the number of matches he played for his club.

Fans redeemed these as Fan Rewards or won them after acing a quiz about the main man.

Fans now own a piece of Dinamo’s history with an exclusive Digital Collectible, capturing the illustrious career of former captain Arijan Ademi, symbolising his remarkable contributions and unforgettable moments at the club. 

Making your mark on Legia Warsaw home games

Legia Warsaw Fan Token holders had a busy month as they pushed their team on in the latter part of the season. They got to:

  • Pick the official warm-up playlist for the final home games of the season
  • Chose motivational LED messages for the stadium 

Voters had the chance to win VIP tickets for the final match of the season, ending it in style as Legia Warsaw beat Śląsk Wrocław 3-1.

Natus Vincere & OG Paris challenges 

Fan Token holders of Natus Vincere and OG had a weekend to remember as they jetted off to Paris to take on various challenges based on their esports team. They paired up with an influencer, travelled around Paris and used the app to guide them around their challenges, unlocking cool prizes en route! 

1 year of @SociosBrasil on Twitter

We can’t believe our Samba Twitter channel has been open for 1 year already! To celebrate @SociosBrasil’s anniversary, we went full tilt Socios style: we organised a whack of giveaways throughout the entire month of May, and fans claimed:

  • Football kits from our Brasilian partners
  • Match tickets
  • Personalised merch
  • Fan Tokens
  • And more!

It really was the carnival spirit!

Watching Benfica being crowned Champions

The final game of the Portuguese La Liga saw SL Benfica take on Santa Clara, knowing that a win would win them the league. They outclassed their opponents and 15 Fan Token holders enjoyed the final day of the season in style. They had a museum tour, watched the players arrive at the stadium, the warm-ups at pitchside and even saw the Eagle fly over the pitch before kick-off. Of course, the three points and the league title were a cherry on the cake and they also got to witness the title celebrations on the pitch!

A Coppa Italia final for the ages:

Goal-scored balls

The Coppa Italia final was a glorious moment for our partners FC Internazionale as they overcame Fiorentina 2-1. Nicolás González gave Fiorentina the lead after just three minutes, but a quickfire double from Lautaro Martínez and a resilient performance from Inter’s back-line ensured back-to-back titles for the Nerazzurri.

Three goals by two Argentine forwards, with each ball retrieved as Collectibles. 

Martínez’s equalising goal was his 100th career goal for FC Inter and the ball was indeed collected as a game-scored ball, ready to be redeemed by an FC Inter Fan Token holder. His 101st – the match winner will also be made available via reverse auction. Martínez’s wonderful season continued as he also claimed the Man of the Match prize, a trophy designed by too!

VIP experiences, walkabouts and more

Fan Token holders got to attend the match too with some bagging a meet & greet with a Lega Ambassador in the box at the Stadio Olimpico. Six fans also enjoyed a pre-match walkabout, exploring pitchside ahead of the final. That was a fantastic final and we’re proud to have had Fan Token holders enjoy unprecedented access to the spectacle.

Making your mark on the FA Cup final 

With Manchester City on the hunt for the Treble, they head to Wembley for the first-ever Manchester Derby in an FA Cup final. The players start a huge week, with the UEFA Champions League final against FC Inter also coming up.

They’ll feel the pressure, but Fan Token holders have the opportunity to send in their messages of support, which will be left on the player’s seats in the dressing room. 

Fans will also be able to vote for the branding in Manchester City’s changing room, making their mark on the FA Cup final! How about that for Fan Token power?

Alanyaspor training visit

As the Süper Lig came to a close, Alanyaspor wanted to show their appreciation to their loyal supporters by inviting them to attend training sessions. Fans redeemed their sports via Fan Rewards, and even got to meet some of the players and get their autographs. Only 2000 SSU were needed and 5 Alanyaspor Fan Tokens helped fans create memories with their sporting idols. 

Roll of honour

We’d like to conclude this rewind by highlighting and congratulating our partners who won silverware, this season. Their fans played a huge role in their success and we’ve had a season with so many success stories, starting from the World Championships, and ending with the UEFA Champions League final between two of our partners too.

Argentina: World Champions

Sevilla FC: UEFA Europa League winners

Manchester City FC: Premier League Champions, UEFA Champions League finalists, FA Cup finalists

FC Internazionale: Super Coppa winners, Coppa Italia winners, UEFA Champions League finalists

Galatasaray SK: Süper Lig champions

SSC Napoli: Serie A winners

FC Barcelona: La Liga champions, Supercopa winners

Paris Saint-Germain: Ligue 1 winners, Trophée des Champions winners
