Socios Collectibles launched at the EA Sports Supercoppa Italiana
Socios.com Collectibles made its debut when Inter Milan triumphed 3–0 at the EA Sports Supercoppa Italiana in Riyadh in January earlier this year.
Socios provides access to digital sports fan communities, where fans can participate in games, polls, predictors and other features, earning points to redeem merchandise, VIP tickets to games, digital collectibles, real-life collectibles, such as the Lega Serie A game-scored balls, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Fans are able to access these engaged, rewarding communities through digital assets known as Fan Tokens.
Luigi De Siervo, CEO of Lega Serie A, said: “After the great success achieved by the auction of game-used balls from the EA SPORTS Supercup final, we decided to present this opportunity to the many fans of Lega Serie A and Coppa Italia.
“For many months we have been on a path of constant innovation to involve more and more fans.
“The positive feedback we had in January on this initiative confirms the public’s appreciation for the activities developed in synergy with Socios.com.”
Chiliz CEO Alexandre Dreyfus said: “Owning a game-scored ball from a big game is cool, but being able to relive the goal, directly from the ball itself, anytime, is extra-special. We’re giving fans the chance to ‘own the moment’ and this is a great showcase for what Gameused.com by Chiliz can do.
“We’re committed to bringing more rewards and more utility to Fan Token holders and we’re therefore delighted to launch this campaign with Lega Serie A, which powerfully highlights one of the innovative ways we’re using technology to change the game for fans.”
