MILAN - FC Internazionale Milano, in partnership with Chiliz $CHZ, the leading blockchain providers for the global sports and entertainment industry, have announced that they will launch the $INTER Fan Token on the Socios.com fan engagement app at 13:00 CEST on Friday September 10th.
$INTER Fan Tokens made headlines the world over in July when the club announced they would be promoting them from the front of the shirt for the 2021/22 season. And, on Friday, Nerazzurri fans from around the planet will be able to get their hands on them for the first time.
A total of 1 million $INTER Fan Tokens will be available at a fixed price of €2 in the Fan Token Offering (FTO®). $INTER Fan Tokens will create new experiences for supporters, allowing them to become part of a vibrant digital community on Socios.com.
There will be countless engagement opportunities for $INTER Fan Token holders, including the chance to influence the club in a range of important, interactive and fun, polls every season. Fans will also be able to access exclusive club-related content, put their skills to the test and go up against other fans from around the world in club-related games, competitions and quizzes, competing in global leaderboards to earn once-in-a-lifetime real-life and digital VIP rewards and experiences.
$INTER Fan Token holders will be able to vote in the very first poll to select an inspirational message to appear in the tunnel area straight away on Socios.com.
$INTER San Siro Takeover - September 18th: The first poll forms part of an extensive launch campaign, which will culminate in a ‘$INTER San Siro Takeover’ when the club goes head to head against Bologna on September 18th at 18:00 CEST.
Events on the day will include the unveiling of the tunnel messaging and a Socios.com message to Inter fans to be revealed through a high-visibility choreographed display involving 10,000 flags on the grandstand. The winning message will also be displayed on LED boards around the pitch. $INTER Fan Token holders from around the world will also appear on the screen in the mixed area before kick-off via webcam to welcome the players.
Alexandre Dreyfus, CEO of Chiliz and Socios.com, said: “Calling all Inter Milan fans around the world - your moment is nearly here! In just a couple of days, Nerazzurri from around the world will have the chance to influence and connect with the team they love like never before. If you want an $INTER Fan Token make sure you’re ready and waiting on Socios.com for 13:00 CEST this Friday. $INTER holders will have the chance to feel like a real part of their club, which will be exemplified in style when they ‘take over’ the San Siro on September 18th.”
