Juventus, the Italian professional soccer club, has released its own token to enable fans to participate in voting and polling.

According to a December 2 announcement, after a year-long development, Juventus’ branded token is now available on Socios.com, a tokenized fan-voting platform for sports.

It has been analyzed that the token’s initial price is 2 Euros ($2.22) per token, while a limited amount of free tokens will be available through the augmented reality feature of “Token Hunt“, the Socios.com app.

However, fans who hold the token will be able to vote in a range of club-related decisions, the first of which will determine the club’s song for when it scores a goal. 

Initially, the club planned to release the token in the first quarter of 2019. The decision to develop a branded token has been followed by a similar initiative by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). PSG’s partnership with Socios.com also allows fans to vote and also confers VIP status and/or rewards to holders.

Likewise, sports teams around the world have actively embraced branded tokens to improve interaction with their fans. In mid-October 2019, the Sacramento Kings NBA basketball team partnered with CryptoKaiju to launch crypto-collectibles supported by non-fungible tokens.

Giorgio Ricci, the Chief Revenue Officer of Juventus, comments:

“We are proud to be the first Club to be activated by Socios.com on its platform, inaugurating a new way to interact with our fans around the world. This partnership shows once again how much technological evolution and innovation are two priorities for Juventus, also in the way we relate to and connect with our fan base.”

Alexandre Dreyfus, the CEO and Founder of ChilizSocios.com, said:

“The celebration of a goal is something fundamental during matchdays. After eight years, Juventus fans have the opportunity to actively participate in the change with their vote. Making history: they will be the first football fans in the world to choose “their” song. All this makes us incredibly proud.”
