Fans Are Using $PSG Fan Tokens To Choose An Inspirational Captain’s Armband Message In The First Of Many Polls To Be Held On The Fan Voting & Rewards App

To celebrate the launch of the $PSG tokens, Paris Saint-Germain is initiating its first consultation on the Fan Voting & Rewards app Socios.com. As of today, the lucky owners of $PSG tokens are invited to choose the message that will appear on the captain's armband worn by the iconic Thiago Silva and his successors.

With the launch of $PSG tokens, Paris Saint-Germain is entering a new era in the relationship with its fans. Indeed, all of the token holders will be regularly involved in decisions affecting the life of the Club and thus will have the chance to shape its destiny. 

For the first of many polls to come on the Fan Voting & Rewards app Socios.com, the Club is asking its fans to choose an inspirational message to be placed on the captain's armband to motivate Thiago Silva and his team-mates. A list of 3 messages has been created with the first $PSG Fan Token holders:

  1. 50 years, 40 trophies, only 1 passion.
  2. Ici c’est Paris.
  3. Our history will become legendary.

All of the $PSG Fan Token holders are eligible to vote. Fans can purchase $PSG Fan Tokens exclusively in the Paris Saint-Germain Fan Token Offering (FTO™), which is now open on Socios.com. In addition to this, all MyParis subscribers and members will receive a $PSG Fan Token for free.

Hundreds of thousands of Chiliz $CHZ, the digital currency of Socios.com, and a limited number of $PSG Fan Tokens were also made available for free from mid-January onwards until today’s launch through Socios.com’s in-app Augmented Reality (AR) feature Token Hunt. Fans who collected $CHZ in the Daily Token Hunts can use them towards purchasing $PSG Fan Tokens now that the FTO is open.

As part of their commitment to Socios.com, Paris Saint-Germain will ask token holders to vote in a number of binding & non-binding polls each season. For the binding polls the club will stand by the outcome, while the non-binding polls will allow the club to gauge fan opinion in relation to certain club matters.

All polls take place in a secure environment, and all votes cast are registered on the blockchain, so the results are transparent and can’t be altered. This means that Paris Saint Germain fans can use $PSG Fan Tokens to vote on club matters confident that the vote will be fair and meaningful.

Fans will earn reward points for taking part, giving them the opportunity to access unique experiences and exclusive club merchandise. Experiences could include the chance to watch a match from the VIP area at the Parc des Princes and meet stars from the team as well as club legends. Socios.com and Paris Saint-Germain will reward fans in other exciting ways too, creating once-in-a-lifetime experiences and allowing supporters to get closer to their heroes.  The more Fan Tokens accumulated and the more a fan interacts with the app, the more reward points they will receive, increasing their chances of winning one of these incredible experiences.

Each $PSG Fan Token will be priced at around €2 depending on the exchange rate of Chiliz $CHZ, the digital currency of Socios.com, at the time of purchase.  Once acquired, $PSG Fan Tokens cannot be spent and can be used to take part in all votes on the app.

Marc Armstrong, Chief Partnerships Officer of Paris Saint-Germain, said: “This is a very meaningful moment in PSG x Socios.com partnership history. Thanks to the launch of PSG Fan Token, our fans will now be able to contribute to our daily work, as well as drive important and symbolic decisions for the Club. As of today, the Club reinforce proximity with fans, which is one of our main values.”

Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO & Founder of Socios.com, said: “What better way to influence Thiago Silva and future leaders of the team, than with an inspirational message of support to go inside the captain’s armband. The message $PSG Fan Token holders choose in this vote will have the potential to inspire captain’s of Paris Saint-Germain for generations to come, creating a new legacy between the club and its fans. Building a stronger connection between the club and its fans is the raison d’être of Socios.com. Thanks to $PSG Fan Tokens, supporters will be able to play a part in reshaping the identity of the club, while accessing some amazing rewards and experiences along the way. I look forward to the outcome of this first poll and hope it proves truly inspirational for Thiago and the future captains of Paris Saint-Germain.”
