So far, he has partnered with 25 sports organizations such as Manchester City FC, FC Barcelona and AC Milan, a well-known European soccer team, and UFC, a mixed martial arts organization. FC Barcelona’s fan token “BAR”, which sold out less than two hours after its launch last year, also attracted attention as it traded on the Socios.com platform.

This time around, it just signed a marketing partnership agreement, but Socios.com announced in March this year that it would open a regional headquarters in New York. The company plans to invest at least $ 50 million to partner with five professional sports leagues in the United States. New Jersey Devils is the first to partner with a professional sports team in the United States.
“The team at FC Barcelona and others has benefited from joining our network. Our technology is also in the United States,” said Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Socios.com and its operator Chiliz. We could support sports organizations as well. “
“We are currently working to partner with a wide range of sports teams. In 2021, we would like to increase our presence in the United States and expand our business globally,” he said.
