Juventus soccer club has today announced that it will be launching the ‘Juventus Official Fan Token’.

The announcement comes after the soccer club partnered with “blockchain-based fan engagement platform" Socios.com. The Fan Token is set to be released as early as the first quarter of next year.

Together with Socios.com, we believe we can offer new opportunities to our worldwide fan base to engage in cutting-edge way with their favorite club," said Giorgio Ricci, Co-Chief Revenue Officer and head of Global Partnerships at Juventus.
