The fan tokens will grant the I Rossoblu fans “unprecedented access” to the club. The fan tokens will provide engagement opportunities, which consists of the chance of voting on initiatives by taking part in interactive polls that will be conducted on the Socios app.
Speaking on the occasion, Christoph Winterling, Commercial and Marketing Director of Bologna FC said: “We are very proud to announce this partnership with Socios. This agreement confirms the growth and appeal of the Bologna brand globally and our will to continue expanding. As a Club, we are always very attentive and proactive towards new technologies and innovation.”
“Together with Socios, we intend to offer new opportunities to our fan base around the world to interact in an innovative and creative way with our team.”
Adding to it, Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and Socios, said: “We are delighted to welcome Bologna FC, a club with rich sporting tradition and one of the founding members of Serie A, to our growing roster of partners. We look forward to working together to create lots of new opportunities for their local and global fanbase.”
“I encourage all Bologna FC fans to keep an eye on the club and Socios’s social media channels so they don’t miss the opportunity to join our global digital community of sports fans who, through Fan Tokens and the Socios app, are discovering the perks of being more than fans.
“Bologna FC is our fifth Serie A partner and we will be adding many more in this and other top competitions worldwide in the coming months as we consolidate Socios as the leading Fan Engagement platform for the world’s biggest sporting organizations.”
Chiliz was founded in 2012, with the view of empowering millions of football fans around the world. The new site states that Chiliz is the official cryptocurrency of Socios.com and allows fans to buy voting rights on several issues at their favourite club. While Bologna is one of the successful clubs in Italy playing in Serie A and has already lifted the title seven times in history. The full details on the BFC fan token are yet to be revealed.
