Lionel Messi has become the first player ever to receive a large number of “$PSG Fan Tokens” as part of his high-profile signing.
As part of the player’s welcome package, the $PSG Fan Tokens attach the player to millions of Paris Saint-Germain supporters throughout the world. Paris Saint-Germain is further distinguished as one of the most creative and innovative sports franchises in the world by this move.
Token implementation comes as a great illustration of the way the club is constantly finding ways to increase and diversify its revenue streams to continue developing as a global brand.
Paris Saint-Germain became the first sports franchise to partner with Socios.com in 2018, marking a pioneering step into the world of blockchain. Socios.com and Paris Saint-Germain have since then been collaborating on creating this unique way of connecting the club with the fans.
