Chiliz, the blockchain fintech provider that owns the fan token platform, has expanded its partnership with Spanish soccer giants Atletico Madrid.

Under the new agreement, the Atlético fan token will be made available for more fans through an integration with the LaLiga club’s digital ecosystem.

The expanded partnership “increases the catalog of benefits” that fan token holders receive and the number of rewards they can earn. It allows fans to access opportunities linked to holding fan tokens through the club’s official app.

The Fan Token Experience integrates the ecosystem into the Atlético platform and adds new features specifically designed for the club’s fans. Fan polls and trivia quizzes will be launched every day, allowing fans to earn points which can be used to redeem different rewards and experiences linked to the club.

By integrating the fan token in the club’s digital ecosystem, Atlético and Chiliz claim to be “pioneering a new frontier in the adoption of web3 technology and inaugurating a highly anticipated next stage in the vision for fan tokens.”

The integration is powered by Chiliz partner LiveLike, a company that specializes in audience engagement through gamified experiences.
