September 17 – Galatasaray have become the latest club to partner with Socios.com for a step into the brave new world of cryptocurrency fan tokens. They are the first Turkish club to do so.
Galatasaray join Atlético de Madrid, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, AS Roma and West Ham United as the sixth football club to sign up.
Powered by Chiliz technology, a leading sports and entertainment blockchain company, the app allows fans to acquire certain club voting rights as well as access to club rewards and to the opportunity to compete for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Dorukhan Acar, Board Member of Galatasaray Spor Kulübü said: “As Galatasaray, we are very pleased to join forces with Socios.com and start an exciting journey. This new partnership opens a world of new opportunities for us with respect to our fan engagement and global reach as well as being another milestone in our digital transformation strategy.”
Poll topics will include new official product designs, matchday activities and in-stadium experiences, as well as sponsorship campaigns and collaborations and social media content. The more tokens a fan holds, the greater the influence their vote will have, and the more rewards they can earn. The tokens are tradeable.
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO & Founder of Socios.com said: “We know that Turkey is a very digitally savvy country – a Statista report earlier this year indicated that the Turks are early adopters of digital innovation, including cryptocurrencies – and we also know that Turks are enthusiastic football fans. Our product combines the two greatest passions of the Turkish people and we’re delighted to partner with Galatasaray, a giant of the Turkish football scene, to offer Fan Tokens to their millions of fans. This partnership marks another great step forward in opening up cryptocurrencies and Chiliz to millions of fans around the world.”
