Socios.com’s $100M Investment In FC Barcelona
The Socios.com platform announced its investment in Barça Studios of $100 million, equivalent to a 24.5% stake in Barça Studios. Barça Studios is the business unit that leads the creation of NFT and metaverse projects, as well as determines the strategy for FC Barcelona’s entry into the digital world.
FC Barcelona stated that the sale of shares from Barça Studios has been agreed by the General Assembly of FC Barcelona Members since October 23, 2021. The $BAR fan token is said to be the key to unlocking and creating a new set of opportunities into the new immersive digital ecosystem that will be built jointly by Socios. .com and Barça Studios.
As part of this investment and strategic partnership, Socios.com and Barça Studios will develop a project that attracts the most innovative blockchain and web3 partners to build new features in the FC Barcelona ecosystem, opening new horizons of the partnership between the two parties that has been hand in hand since February 2020.
