RIO DE JANEIRO — JANUARY 18TH: CR Vasco da Gama have announced a partnership agreement with Chiliz, the leading blockchain providers for the sports and entertainment industry and that the club will launch their official Fan Token $VASCO on the Socios.com all-in-one fan influence and rewards platform.
Based in Rio de Janeiro, Vasco, as it’s popularly known, has one of the richest legacies in Brazilian football history. The club has won the Campeonato Carioca 24 times, the Campeonato Brasileiro four times and the Copa do Brasil once. In international competition, the club won the Copa Libertadores in 1998 and reached the final of the FIFA Club World Cup in 2000 led by global legend Romário, one of the club’s biggest icons.
The $VASCO Fan Token will unlock unprecedented opportunities and experiences for Vasco’s estimated 12 million worldwide fans to engage with and influence the club regardless of where they live. $VASCO Fan Token holders will be able to have their input on a wide range of fan-related decisions such as kit designs, squad numbers for new players, celebration songs, inspirational messages and other fan-related topics by voting on binding polls on the Socios.com app.
Influencing the club is just one of the many perks of this innovative app that is changing the way fans connect with their teams and heroes across the global sports market. $VASCO holders will also enjoy exclusive discounts and promotions as well as the chance to earn unique rewards, from signed merchandise and VIP tickets to Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), which will allow fans to hold and collect the most memorable moments in the history of their beloved team like never before.
Fans will also be able to connect with other fans around the globe, putting their skills and knowledge to the test in games and quizzes, competing in global leader boards and earning real-life and digital club-related rewards, benefits and experiences along the way.
In 2021, Socios.com Fan Token partners conducted over 300 Fan Polls on the app and rewarded 5,000 Fan Token holders with club merchandise, tickets, VIP experiences and other prizes.
The launch date for the $VASCO Fan Token will be released soon as well as the subject of the first Fan Poll, which will be available to vote on the Socios.com app as soon as the Token is released.
