Special captain's armband for El Clásico
Fans could pick their favourite of three options on Socios.com, the club's official Fan Token partner
Barça will be using a special captain's armband for this Sunday's game against Real Madrid, because it was chosen by the supporters themselves via the official Fan Token partner, Socios.com, in a survey that opened on the app on March 6. Any fan that owns at least one $BAR Fan Token could choose between three different design, an innovative idea that helps further ensure that the fans get to play their part in what happens with their team.
The winning design features the club crest on a blaugrana background, a very classic kind of design compared to the rejected options of the crest under the flag with a blue background, and the crest on a yellow background with a blaugrana diagonal.
Owners of Fan Tokens can also obtain a replica of the armband using their SSU tokens, which are received for free whenever they interact with different features of the app. Non-owners of Fan Tokens can still purchase an armband from Socios.com, which can be downloaded for free onto iOS or Android devices.
These Fan Tokens also give users the chance to win special prizes and gifts, such as official signed products, match tickets, meetings with players and legends and other unique experiences. Socios.com is produced by Chiliz, a leading company in blockchain solutions for the sports and entertainment industry. It was launched in 2019 and currently has more than 1.8 million users in more than 160 different countries.
