See all the details below.
Socios.com and Juventus: the partnership continues to grow
As we know, Juventus began its partnership with Socios.com in September 2018, becoming the second professional sports club to join the platform.
In a short time, Juventus became the first sports team to launch its official Fan Token, paving the way for other organisations worldwide.
Over the past five years, this partnership has led to significant benefits for millions of Juventus fans, while providing a valuable platform for the club to expand its global presence and generate new revenue streams.
During this time, more than 140 surveys have been conducted and nearly 1,000 club-related prizes, including autographed jerseys and exclusive experiences, donated to JUV Fan Token holders via Socios.com.
By renewing their commitment, Juventus and Socios.com wish to bring fans even closer to the club.
For this reason, both parties have decided to expand the offer of exclusive experiences and benefits accessible through the Socios.com app for JUV Fan Token holders.
As a reminder, the JUV Fan Token has not only given Juventus fans access to unprecedented engagement opportunities with the club, but has also provided the club with an effective tool to connect with younger fans and millions of supporters beyond its borders.
Over 65% of Juventus Fan Token holders are under 40 years old, while over 30% are under 30. Juventus has Fan Token holders in 139 different countries around the world.
Comments on the renewal of the partnership
Tiziana Di Gioia, CCO of the Juventus Football Club, had the following to say about this important news:
“We are delighted to be able to strengthen our partnership with Socios.com, a key partner who has delivered great value to the club and its supporters over the past five years. In 2018 Juventus was one of the first clubs in the world to understand the potential of this technology and time has proved us right.”
“Today, our JUV Fan Token allows us to offer exciting opportunities to our fans on a global scale and now, through this new agreement, we will further expand the catalog of exclusive benefits and experiences that will be available and redeemable by Fan Token holders.”
Indeed, Chiliz and Socios.com founder and CEO Alexandre Dreyfus said:
“The extension of this partnership is really special for us. Juventus was one of the first sports organizations to support our vision and believe in our platform and the first club in the world to launch the Fan Token. With their audacity they have paved a path that dozens of sports companies around the world have followed and that is changing the game for sports fans. We are excited and proud to be able to take a new step forward in our relationship, which will see us offer even more opportunities for Juventus fans around the world and bring further value to the Club.”
