Orlegi Sports, in partnership with Chiliz, the leading blockchain provider for the sports and entertainment industry, has officially announced that they will be launching the official Fan Tokens of Atlas FC and Club Santos Laguna on Socios.com.
This partnership will see Atlas and Santos Laguna become the first Mexican clubs to launch Fan Tokens on Socios.com.
$ATLAS and $SAN Fan Tokens will grant Zorros and Guerreros fans worldwide access to a wide range of new opportunities to actively connect with their teams, including the chance to take part in key fan-related decisions by voting in binding polls on the Socios.com app.
The launch date of the $ATLAS and $SAN Fan Tokens will be revealed soon, as well as the launch price, total supply, and other details.
This partnership with Orlegi Sports is an important milestone for Socios.com, since it is a strategic gateway to Mexico, a key region where the company has very ambitious plans. According to a recent report by Nielsen, Mexico is the world’s seventh country in terms of number of football fans.
