AC Milan and Inter Milan Fan Token holders will have the chance to win these first-of-its-kind NFC chip embedded collectibles.
JANUARY 17TH, RIYADH: Chiliz announced today they will activate their new digital authentication service Gameused.com when AC Milan takes on their city rivals Inter Milan in the EA Sports Supercoppa Italiana to be played in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on Wednesday, January 18th. Chiliz, the leading blockchain tech provider for the global sports industry, is the creator of Fan Tokens and the Socios.com fan rewards and engagement app.
Gameused.com verifies sports memorabilia through the Chiliz Blockchain and uses embedded NFC (near-field communication) chips, allowing fans and collectors to immediately authenticate memorabilia using their smartphones.
Socios Partners with Lega Serie A for this Special Fan Token Holder Reward
The EA Sports Supercoppa Italiana is a key fixture in the Italian football calendar, with the winners of the previous season’s League and Cup going head to head in a one-off clash.
Socios.com, in collaboration with partners Lega Serie A, decided to use this unique occasion to create a special opportunity for AC Milan and Inter Milan Fan Token holders to be rewarded.
Chiliz GameUsed Authentication Process
As soon as a goal is scored, the ball will be taken by the referee who will hand it to a representative from Lega Serie A. The representative will seal the ball, note the minute of the goal and the goal scorer and then place it in a Socios.com branded display case.
This moment will be captured on video, before the ball, in its display case, is sent to Chiliz HQ. Once it arrives at Chiliz HQ, it will be verified by the GameUsed team and then integrated with an NFC chip.
Socios Collectibles Hub Launch
The memorabilia will be exclusively redeemable to Inter and AC Milan Fan Token holders on Socios.com. It will form part of Socios Collectibles, the new hub for blockchain verified real-life collectibles on the app, powered by Gameused.com.
Luigi De Siervo, CEO of Lega Serie A said: “We want fans to dream of securing the original balls that will decide the final of the EA Sports Supercoppa Italia between AC Milan and Inter Milan.
“Thanks to our partnership with Socios.com, we will be the first League to allow fans to own the iconic object par excellence of a final — the scoring-ball.
“This new initiative enhances the Lega Serie A product and enables us to share a piece of our history with fans in a tangible way”
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Socios.com and Chiliz said: “The EA Sports Supercoppa Italia is going to be a spectacular occasion and the perfect opportunity to showcase the many ways in which Chiliz blockchain technology is bringing more value to fans and teams.
“We’re delighted to work with Lega Serie A on this first-of-its-kind initiative and look forward to providing Fan Token holders with the chance to own ‘goal’ balls from the game, featuring NFC chip technology that will allow the owner to replay the goal whenever they want using their smartphone.
“Gameused.com brings more authenticity, excitement and content to the global sports memorabilia market. We look forward to running many more activations with our partners in the future, adding more value to our collection of blockchain verified real life sports merchandise for fans on Socios Collectibles.”
