  • Chiliz recently announced a collaboration with Premier League giant Everton to launch their fan token on the Socios.com app. The collaboration adds to a long list of football teams that have chosen to increase fan engagement with the Socios.com app.

    The $CHZ token powers the Socios.com platform and allows sports teams all over the world to engage and reward their fans. Everton is the latest team to join, following in the footsteps of world-renowned brands such as FC Barcelona, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, and, most recently, the highly popular fighting arena of UFC.

    Everton fans will be able to purchase the $EFC token through the Socios.com app and participate in interactive polls run by the club throughout the season.

    Other advantages include participating in football-related quizzes, games, and competitions with fans from other clubs around the world, earning rewards and experiences along the way.

    For a limited time following the launch of the $EFC fan token on the Socios.com platform, all Everton season ticket holders, hospitality, and official members will be able to choose to receive a free $EFC fan token.

    Everton’s Commercial Director, Alan McTavish, stated:

    We will launch $EFC Fan Tokens with Socios, giving supporters all over the world a new and exciting way to interact with the Club, including voting in polls on Club initiatives. Socios are the acknowledged leaders in blockchain across the sports industry, and the introduction of $EFC Fan Tokens is an exciting opportunity that demonstrates the Club’s commitment to engaging with our global fanbase.”

    Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and Socios.com, said of Everton:

    “Everton is a club with a rich history and a devoted fanbase. It’s also a major name in the world’s most popular football league, with global appeal and a rapidly growing fanbase of fans from all over the world.

    “The club is embracing Socios.com and Fan Tokens because it recognizes the significance and massive potential of global fan engagement.”

    Socios.com has now partnered with over 45 major sporting organizations worldwide. Along with the previously mentioned teams, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Arsenal, and the Argentina and Portugal national teams have all signed up. Other sports that have collaborated include Formula One racing, esports, and cricket.
