Empoli FC Becomes the First Italian Football Club to Fully Embrace Web3 Fan Engagement with Blocksport

Empoli FC has achieved a historic milestone by becoming the first club in Italian football to fully embrace a Web3 fan engagement ecosystem. Partnering with Blocksport, this innovative initiative is transforming the way fans interact with the club, offering unique and immersive experiences through a dedicated fan app and exclusive fan tokens.

Embarking on the Web3 Journey

Empoli FC’s foray into Web3 began with the launch of a bespoke fan app, providing a unique space for fans to connect with the club and each other. The app features a gamification system, including fan missions, points, and leaderboards, designed to enhance fan engagement and strengthen their relationship with the club.

Impressive Results and Metrics

Since the app’s debut, Empoli FC has witnessed significant improvements in fan engagement and visibility. Key performance metrics include:

Launching the Fan Token

A major milestone in Empoli FC’s Web3 journey was the introduction of a unique fan token on the Blocksport Web3 marketplace. The initial sale of these tokens provided fans with exclusive benefits based on the amount of EMP tokens purchased, helping to identify and reward the club’s most loyal supporters.

Real Fan Engagement Experiences

Empoli FC’s strategy includes offering “money can’t buy” experiences. For example, fans holding the Golden level token received signed jerseys from players, creating unforgettable memories and a stronger bond with the club.

Special Projects and Community Initiatives

Empoli FC and Blocksport have also engaged in special projects to support important causes. In 2022, the club played a friendly match against the Ukrainian national team, during which they launched a unique NFT collection. This collection sold out in one day and was promoted by UNITED24, a prominent Ukrainian foundation supported by the President of Ukraine.

Future Roadmap and Goals

Looking ahead, Empoli FC and Blocksport have ambitious plans to expand their Web3 fan engagement ecosystem. Upcoming initiatives include:

  • NFT Game Launch: Introducing new interactive experiences for fans.
