2 min read

PORTO ALEGRE, FEBRUARY 14TH: Sport Club Internacional, the two time Copa Libertadores Champions and Chiliz, the leading global sports blockchain provider, have announced that the clubs’ $SACI Fan Token will be launched today, Monday February 14th, at 2pm (CET), 10am in Porto Alegre (Brazil). Internacional’s partnership with Chiliz was revealed in December.

Fan Tokens are collectible digital assets that give sports fans worldwide access to a new digital service provided by their favorite clubs through the Socios.com fan influence and reward app. Benefits for token owners include the right to take part in decision-making processes by voting in polls, access to exclusive club discounts and the chance to earn unique prizes and rewards via games, competitions and other features.

Last year, Socios Fan Token partners launched over 300 Fan Polls on the app, with fans voting on kit designs, squad numbers, inspirational messages and other fan-related matters. Up to 5,000 Fan Token holders were rewarded with signed jerseys, match tickets and VIP experiences through the Socios platform. This year Socios goal is to reward over 17,000 users.

In what will be the first Brazilian Fan Token Offering (FTO®) of 2022, 150,000 $SACI Fan Tokens will be released at $2 each. In order to increase opportunities for Internacional’s fans to benefit from this new opportunity, Socios has introduced a new wave release format which spans four days across three stages:

The first Fan Poll will be available shortly, and will give Inter fans the chance to vote on a very special club decision. $SACI Fan Token holders will be able to choose the design of the armband that Andrés D’Alessandro, current captain and one of the club’s biggest all-time legends, will wear during his final stretch as a Colorado.

Owning one $SACI Fan Token will be enough to vote on this poll and the rest of the polls that Inter will be launching on the Socios app in the months ahead. However, fans that own more tokens will have a higher influence (each vote is multiplied by the number of tokens owned) and more chances to earn rewards.

Sport Club Internacional becomes the fifth Brazilian football club to launch its Fan Token on Socios. They join a growing network of over 60 sports organizations across the globe that are already using the digital assets created by Socios to engage with their fan base. The roster includes football giants like FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Juventus, Inter Milan, Arsenal along with the national teams of Italy and Portugal. Other sports partners on the roster include major MMA brands, Formula 1 teams and esports clubs all over the world.

The Socios mobile app was launched by the leading sports blockchain provider Chiliz in 2019. It is available for iOS and Android devices and currently hosts a growing community of 1.3 million users in 167 countries. Brazil is the fastest growing market for the company in terms of users over the past year, and currently accounts for over 15 percent of the app’s user base.

Socios grew both its number of partners and its number of users by 500 percent in 2021, and aims to introduce millions of new fans to the benefits of Fan Tokens in 2022 with new innovations, features and rewards to be added to the platform throughout the year. Socios will add many more major global sports organizations to its roster, launch high visibility national and international marketing campaigns and build up its sports and entertainment ecosystem in the next months.
