Paris Saint Germain, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, Leicester City, Crystal Palace and Southampton are among the major English clubs that have partnerships with blockchain companies. Liverpool F.C. will be joining them as well, while Juventus is following Paris Saint Germain. All across Europe we can see keen interest in blockchain services to enhance fan experiences.
After Paris Saint Germain announced their collaboration with Socios.com to build a fan portal based on voting power through blockchain technology, now also Juventus jumped on board. The Italian powerhouse of football signed Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, and will now create the Juventus Official Fan Token. This token will be distributed through a Fan Token Offering (FTO).
The token will be traded against Socios.com’s native CHZ token. Buying these Juventus Official Fan Tokens will give fans voting power. Voting would not be aimed at the business of running a club though, so they can’t vote on signing Lionel Messi as well. Think more along the lines of kits of the new season, or other fan appreciated activities.
Socios.com has plans to sign a lot more clubs for their platform. Paris Saint German and Juventus are among the first. Ultimately they want to have as many as 50 clubs on board.
In the United Kingdom Liverpool F.C. has signed a partnership with Forex trading platform TigerWit. The blockchain trading app is also used for key global markets like commodities and metals. This makes Liverpool another club embracing blockchain technology.
