The famous Turkish football club Galatasaray in cooperation with Socios blockchain startup intends to issue tokens for fans. Socios startup also confirms that the Turkish club will use the project platform to issue tokens for fans.
In addition, the club will be added to the mobile application in which football fans can receive rewards. Tokens for fans will give them the opportunity to vote in surveys conducted by the team and participate in decision-making on issues that the team decides to put to a vote.
Surveys are expected to address issues such as “new official product logos, events on the day of the match, as well as sponsorship campaigns, collaboration, and social media content.”
The more tokens a fan has, the greater the value of his voice. In addition, the more fans interact with the club, the more "they can earn rewards in club competitions and get exclusive rights." According to the company, in the future fans will have the opportunity to get tickets for important matches and access to exclusive club goods.
Token sales will go through the Socios.com platform in the first quarter of 2020. One of the members of the Galatasaray board, Doruhan Akar, said: “We are very pleased to work with Socios.com in terms of this initiative. The new partnership opens up a world of new opportunities for us in terms of interacting with fans and popularizing the club globally, as well as being another significant step in our digital transformation strategy. ”
Earlier, several popular football teams have already joined the Socios platform, such as Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus, Roma, West Ham United and Atletico Madrid.
