Socios is on track to run at least 500 polls this year for its growing community of Fan Token holders, enabling them to influence fan-centric decisions on matters ranging from kit designs to squad numbers and celebration songs. Socios will also reward more fans than ever before with as many as 17,000 fans set to watch games for the teams they love in style in 2022. Fan Token holders will also receive unique digital rewards, including NFTs, as well as merchandise and match-worn jerseys, while being eligible to access exclusive discounts linked to club sponsors and other special offers and incentives linked to major brands.
