CF Montréal is one of 26 MLS clubs to join Socios.com’s global engagement network

MONTREAL – CF Montréal announced Wednesday a multi-year partnership agreement with next generation fan engagement and rewards company, Socios.com, making the company an official partner of CF Montréal.

With a shared vision in leveraging next-generation technology mixed with innovative experiences, the Socios.com - CF Montréal partnership will further strengthen the existing relationship with fans both on and off the pitch.

With 26 club deals across the League, including CF Montréal, Socios.com seeks to create a unique community for MLS fans to celebrate their passion for the game and give them access to once-in-a-lifetime experiences all from one app. As of the 2022 season, the partnership will offer fans privileged access to the Club through rewards, contests and exclusive events.

With the highest percentage of millennial audience of any major sport in Canada, the deal with Socios.com seeks to enable CF Montréal to showcase its commitment to innovation by leveraging blockchain technology. It will also provide the Club with the necessary tools to engage with fans in more immersive ways. Socios.com will be integrated across League and partner clubs’ social channels and receive digital signage at partner club home games.

The agreement also enables Socios.com, CF Montréal, and MLS to work together on new fan engagement products in the years ahead.

 Socios.com has indicated that it has major global expansion plans and will increase its existing presence in Europe, while targeting many more launches in the USA, Asia, and South America with the world’s leading sports properties.
