Benfica added to Socios partnership portfolio
Benfica has announced a tie-up with Socios which would see them become the first Portuguese soccer club to launch fan tokens on the blockchain-based fan engagement platform.
Through this agreement, the Portuguese club will give its supporters the opportunity to influence the club’s decision-making process via fan tokens.
Socios fan tokens allow users to access the digital services provided by their favourite clubs, with the platform enabling fans to earn rewards, access games and receive VIP experiences. Socios said it is on course to run at least 500 polls this year while more than 17,000 fans will attend matches via rewards and competitions won as Fan Token holders.
