Fortuna Sittard, in partnership with fintech blockchain company Chiliz, has announced the plans to launch a $FOR Fan Token on the blockchain-based fan engagement and rewards platform Socios.com.
$FOR Fan Tokens will massively increase the club’s ability to engage with its supporters, with fans able to access a wide range of benefits, including the right to vote in multiple club decisions each season, VIP rewards & experiences, exclusive club and sponsor promotions, games, competitions and “super-fan” recognition.
Details on the launch date for the $FOR Fan Token, the price and the first poll will be revealed soon. The maximum supply of $FOR Fan Tokens will be 1 million.
“We are really proud that Fortuna Sittard is the first Dutch team which launches a partnership with Chiliz. This initiative underlines our position and vision as a pioneer in introducing modern practices in our league. We believe that involving our fans in our policy throughout the innovative platform Socios will create a good basis for future decisions. Especially during this time we believe it’s important to keep in touch with our fans,” Isitan Gun, chairman of Fortuna Sittard, said.
“Fortuna Sittard have consistently embraced digital innovation in order to increase engagement with their fans, so the decision to launch a Fan Token is the next natural step. Fans can look forward to many more ways to engage with their favourite club as soon as the $FOR Fan Token launches, getting the opportunity to influence the club in polls, access VIP rewards, exclusive promotions, chat forums and much more on Socios.com,” Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO and Founder of Chiliz and Socios.com, said.
