President of FC Porto Jorge Nuno Pinto da Costa said the token brings the club closer to fans and helps the club to leverage digital assets.

“It is another partnership that we have established, to accompany the evolution of the current world, to leverage digital assets, and, above all, to be closer of our supporters and their interests. This is an agreement that values ​​FC Porto and the partner, which is something we look for in every partnership we make and also in our daily work. Anyone who joins FC Porto knows that they are joining a club that wants to be first in everything.”

The token will also be available for trading on the Binance’s spot market, on the P2P market, and via bank cards, after the public distribution on November 16.

According to the announcement, the token will increase fan engagement with the club by enabling them to directly collect engagement-based rewards. Fans holding the token can also use it to collect NFTs, use it as voting rights to influence decision-making at the club, and directly support the club financially. Holders of the token can earn loyalty points that can then be redeemed for actual live match day tickets. The token will also be used for directly buying matchday tickets or paying for goods and services through the Binance Pay platform.

“The FC Porto Fan Token is a BEP-20 utility token designed to revolutionize the fan experience for all FC Porto supporters.
