Sevilla FC, in partnership with Chiliz, the leading blockchain provider for the sports and entertainment industry, have announced that they will launch a $SEVILLA Fan Token on the Socios.com app.
The $SEVILLA Fan Token will provide millions of Sevillistas around the world with a tool to engage with and influence the club like never before, giving them the chance to enjoy special discounts and promotions, access exclusive content and earn unique prizes and rewards, from signed merchandise to VIP tickets and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
In addition to this, for the first time ever, fans will be able to take part in decision-making processes by voting on polls through the Socios app to name club facilities, choose kit designs, squad numbers for new signings, celebration songs, inspirational messages and other fan-related topics.
The launching date of the $SEVILLA Token as well as the subject of the first poll will be announced soon.
Socios, who will have brand visibility in the back part of the team’s official jersey, will work hand-in-hand with Sevilla FC to promote innovation projects in the region of Andalucía by supporting local startups and entrepreneurs.
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Socios, said: “We are very happy to be partnering with Sevilla FC, a club that has become a role model for many thanks to its brilliant management and its innovative vision. We are looking forward to working together to further strengthen that unique and special bond that connects the club to its fans.
“The enormous ambition of Sevilla FC, the great passion of their fans and the special atmosphere that team and supporters create at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán stadium are something very unique in football, and we are very excited to become a part of it.”
José Castro, President of Sevilla FC, said: “This partnership means a huge step forward for our club, since Fan Tokens are a very efficient tool to connect with our fans globally and actively involve them in some of our decisions. Socios is the leading platform in this emerging space, partner to some of the most important organisations in the world, so for us it’s an honor to be working together.”
