Club América partners with sports blockchain provider Chiliz to launch their $AME Fan Token.
Club América, a 13 time Liga MX champion, has announced a partnership with Chiliz, the leading blockchain providers for the sports and entertainment industry, to launch their official Fan Token $AME on the Socios.com fan engagement and rewards app.
Fan Tokens are digital assets that enable fans to access highly engaged communities where participation in games, club polls, predictors and other features unlocks access to rewards including club merchandise, VIP tickets and unique, memorable club experiences.
More than 170 major sports organizations across 10 sport verticals and 25 countries, including many leading football clubs from Europe and Latin America, have partnered with Socios.com to create new experiences and opportunities for their local and global fans through Fan Tokens.
Club América holds a record seven CONCACAF Champions League trophies
Club América is the most successful and decorated football club in México, holding a record for most league and cup titles, and a record of seven CONCACAF Champions League trophies. América is also the most popular club in México in terms of fan base, with the iconic Estadio Azteca recording the highest attendance numbers.
The $AME Fan Token will allow fans of the Águilas, as América is popularly known, to take part in fan-related decisions such as products and facility designs or in-stadium celebration songs by voting on polls, enjoy special content, promotions and discounts and access exclusive rewards. The rewards range from match worn shirts to VIP tickets and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities such as meet and greets with players and legends and dream matches in the iconic Azteca Stadium.
Héctor González Iñárritu, Club América’s President of Operations, assured that the Club is permanently seeking to be closer to the teams’ fans. Being able to work hand in hand with a global leader such as Socios.com demonstrates that the Club is a leader on and off the field.
