Major English football club Manchester City is the latest sports club to launch its own blockchain-based token to power new tools for digital fan engagement.
According to an official announcement Friday, Manchester City has partnered with fan engagement platform Socios.com to launch the CITY fan token on the Chiliz blockchain. Similar to other European clubs like FC Barcelona and Juventus, Manchester City will now have an option to provide VIP rewards, club promotions, games, AR-enabled features and polls using its fan token.
Stephan Cieplik, senior vice president of global partnerships sales at City Football Group, the parent company of Manchester City FC, said that participants of the club’s Cityzens membership will be eligible to receive a free CITY fan token. “Every existing registered Cityzen will also be eligible for a free token so they can access the full range of benefits and rewards,” Cieplik said.
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and Socios, said that the newly launched fan token will provide fans with unique digital and real-life rewards and experiences as soon as COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
