The Los Angeles Lakers have announced a new official team sponsorship with Socios.com, the leading global blockchain provider for the sports and entertainment industry.
Starting with the 2021-22 season, Socios.com will be the presenting sponsor of the Los Angeles Lakers Facebook Group, where die-hard fans live and breathe all things Lakers. Once a member of the official fan group, fans can chat, post and view content from other fans, as well as attend virtual events sponsored by Socios.com. Socios.com will also be featured across the Lakers Twitter polls, allowing fans to vote on a variety of team-focused topics. Driving brand awareness for Socios.com will be supported by leveraging highly visible TV signage.
