ITALY, the four-time FIFA World Cup champions and reigning European champions, has announced the launch of the $ITA Fan Token on Monday, March 7th at 2 PM.
Through the Socios.com app, sports fans can collect digital assets called Fan Tokens that give them access to a new service provided by their favorite clubs.
Participating in decision-making processes by voting in polls, gaining access to exclusive discounts, and earning unique rewards through games and competitions are all added benefits.
The Italian national team has won four World Cup titles (1934, 1938, 1982, 2006) and reached another two finals (1970, 1994), becoming a third place (1990) and a fourth place (1978) finisher. In addition to winning two European Championships (1968, 2020), Italy has reached two other finals.
The team is known as gli Azzurri (the Blues), because Savoy blue is the common colour of the national teams representing Italy, as it is the traditional paint of the royal House of Savoy, which reigned over the Kingdom of Italy.
In Italy’s World Cup playoff match against North Macedonia, holders of $ITA Fan Tokens will vote for the goal celebration song to be played at the Stadio Renzo Barbera and an inspirational message to be placed in the team locker room.
The Italian Football Association has teamed up with Socios.com and Deliveroo to reward $ITA holders with a special treat to enjoy while they support Italy’s campaign to reach Qatar 2022.
On the Socios.com and Italian Football Federation (FIGC) social media channels, the launching price of the $ITA Fan Tokens as well as the supply and caps will be announced soon.
Fans of the $ITA Fan Token will have the opportunity to participate in two Fan Polls as soon as the FTO® begins, allowing them to participate in the Qatar 2022 qualifying match between Italy and North Macedonia. A message will be placed in the locker room of Italy and a song will be played at Stadio Renzo Barbera to celebrate their goals. ITA Fan Token holders will be asked to vote for both.
A $ITA Fan Token will be enough to vote on this poll and other polls that Italy will launch on Socios.com, but fans with more tokens will have more influence and a higher chance of receiving rewards.
It was Juventus a top tier Italian club, that launched the first Fan Token in late 2019, followed by AS Roma, AC Milan, Inter Milan, SSC Napoli and Bologna FC. In the near future, Udinese Calcio will launch their Fan Token.
