Fan token platform Socios.com has partnered with the European Football Association (UEFA) to become its official fan token partner across all competitions.
Socios’ deal with UEFA sees the platform become a “Global Licensing Partner” at UEFA, making it an “Official Licensed Product” and the “Official Fan Token Partner” of various UEFA competitions including the Champions League and Europa League.
Additionally, Socios has become a Regional Sponsor of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup for the 2021-2024 cycle in the United States.
This new agreement will see Socios partner with UEFA to use their men’s club competition branding and exclusive experiences to further enhance the value of Socios’ Club Fan Tokens by awarding Club Fan Token holders with add-on Fan Tokens for UEFA men’s club competitions.
Through its UEFA Champions League Regional Sponsorship partnership, Socios.com will also benefit from brand exposure via Virtual Perimeter Boards, Broadcast Sponsorship Billboards, and Digital Sponsorship rights in the USA.
“We are thrilled for a market leader like Socios.com to become UEFA’s first Fan Token partner,” Guy-Laurent Epstein, marketing director of UEFA, said.
“We are always looking for innovative partnerships, including with the growing cryptocurrency and blockchain-based fan engagement market. With rich experience working with some of the top sports organisations around the world, it is clear that partnering with Socios.com is an ideal fit. We look forward to a fruitful relationship over the course of the next three seasons,” Guy-Laurent Epstein added.
UEFA will reward Fan Token holders on Socios.com in various ways, including VIP trips to UEFA Season Kick-Off Events, the chance to visit UEFA’s HQ, virtual meet-and-greets with UEFA legends, match tickets, merchandise, and memorabilia.
“This ground-breaking partnership is a result of UEFA and Socios.com’s shared commitment to embracing innovation and technology to enhance the fan experience in sport,” Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Socios.com, said.
“Thanks to this new alliance, hundreds of millions of fans around the world will have the opportunity to become more than spectators and play active roles in the biggest club football competitions on the planet through Fan Tokens,” Alexandre Dreyfus added.
