SEVILLE, FEBRUARY 9TH: Sevilla FC, in partnership with Chiliz, the leading sports blockchain provider have announced that the club will launch their official Fan Token $SEVILLA on the Socios all-in-one fan influence and rewards platform.
Sevilla FC has a proud history stretching back over 130 years and they are among a select group of just nine clubs to have won the LaLiga title. Sevilla have also notched five Spanish cup victories and a record six UEFA Europa Leagues titles. Based in Sevilla, the capital of Andalucía, Sevilla holds the unique honor of being the only club named the Best Football Club in the World for two years in a row by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics.
With millions of Sevillistas around the world, the $SEVILLA Fan Token will provide them with a tool to engage with and influence the club they love like never before. It will give them the chance to enjoy special discounts and promotions, access exclusive content and also earn unique prizes and rewards, ranging from signed merchandise to VIP tickets and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Furthermore, for the first time ever, Sevilla FC fans will be able to take part in the decision-making process by voting on polls available through the Socios app to name club facilities, choose kit designs, squad numbers for new players, celebration songs, inspirational messages and other fan-oriented topics.
Last year Socios Fan Token partners launched over 300 Fan Polls on the app and rewarded 5,000 Fan Token holders with club merchandise, VIP tickets and once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as acting as the club’s official speaker and announcing the lineup at an official home match.
The launch date for the $SEVILLA Token as well as the subject of the first poll is still to be determined, but will be announced soon.
Socios will have brand visibility on the back of the club’s official jersey and will also work hand-in-hand with Sevilla FC to promote innovative projects in the region of Andalucía by supporting local startups and entrepreneurs.
Sevilla FC joins a network of over 100 sports organizations across the globe that have already embraced Socios’ leading-edge blockchain technology to empower and enhance the experience for their fans. The roster includes football giants such as FC Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City, Juventus, Inter Milan and Arsenal. Other sports partners include major MMA brands, Formula 1 teams, esports clubs along with NHL, NFL, MLS and NBA franchises.
Sevilla FC and Socios share core values such as innovation, technology and the willingness to place the fans at the forefront of all their efforts. These values will be the pillars of this new and exciting partnership, as the leaders of both organizations have pointed out.
Socios.com CEO Alexandre Dreyfus said: “We are very happy to be partnering with Sevilla FC, a club that has become a role model for many thanks to its brilliant management and it’s innovative vision.
