Real Sociedad, one of the oldest soccer clubs in Europe, has announced the launch of its own soccer fan token, $RSO. The news comes just days after Dapper Labs teamed up with LaLiga to build the LaLiga Golazos NFT project on the Flow (FLOW) blockchain. According to Real Sociedad’s official Twitter account, the Real Sociedad Fan Token (RSO) is set for release on October 17th, 2022.

Being a Part of the Squad Has Never Been Easier
Soccer fan token platform Socios.com has become home to the cryptos of established soccer teams from around the world. The sports crypto platform gained popularity because of its user friendly interface, as well as its consistency. Socios already hosts several LaLiga soccer fan tokens, such as the Valencia C.F. Fan Token (VCF), Sevilla F.C. Fan Token (Sevilla), Atletico De Madrid (ATM), Levante U.D. (LEV) and, of course, the F.C. Barcelona Fan Token (BAR).
The holders of these niche cryptocurrencies gain access to perks such as:
- Participation in decision making for the team;
- Participation in surveys with exclusive rewards;
- Special promotions, like discounts on tickets;
- Eligibility for NFT drops, physical prizes, and other rewards.
30,000 Real Sociedad Tokens at Launch
According to the announcement, 30,000 RSO tokens are ready to be dished out on October 17th, 2022, with the initial price of the Real Sociedad Fan Token (RSO) set at $2. Additionally, the initial sale will be divided into three phases. At release on October 17th, fans will be capped at acquiring a maximum of 5 tokens to ensure that the entire community will have the chance to dive in.
The second phase will be held on October 18th, and will see the limit increased to 25 tokens per fan. Finally, following the final day of the sale on October 19th, the limit will be lifted entirely, allowing fans to acquire as many tokens as they desire.
Data about the FTO of @RealSociedad was added to Rocketfan. 30k $RSO tokens will be available for a price of 2 EUR each, starting from October 17. The token is not issued on Chiliz Chain yet, I will add supply information once it is available.https://t.co/fmAWpOFelr— Christian Ott (@footballelixir) October 10, 2022
On the Flipside
- Soccer fan tokens have been going through a substantial slump of late, recording double-digit losses even despite the approach of the 2022 World Cup.
