Aston Villa announced on Thursday that the launch of the $AVL Fan Token is now live.
Plenty of Villa fans weren’t happy last month after learning of the concept, and numerous supporters have hit out at the latest update on social media.
Villa have partnered with Socios which gives fans the chance to get involved in club-related polls to have a chance of winning a range of prizes.
Will you be getting involved?
Yes, why not?
Not a chance!
The first poll supporters will soon be able to get involved in is choosing a road name at Bodymoor Heath to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Villa’s 1982 European triumph.
Villa fans react
Villa posted the news regarding the launch of the $AVL Fan Token going live on Thursday.
This is what these fans had to say in reply, with many unhappy at partnering with a cryptocurrency brand and one labelling it as ‘risky’.
“I hate this club”
“Disappointing you are going down this money grab against you own fans.”
“Get rid of this”
“This ain’t it!”
“please end this partnership”
“We could do all of these things without digital fan tokens… Risky, unnecessary and a rare bad move”
