In November, Binance officially signed a partnership with football giants FC Porto as an official fan token partner. Now they are ready to highlight this partnership in all of its glory, bringing interactive, social tokens to their fans. After a match against CS Marítimo FC Porto chose a winning message from a fan and distributed fan tokens.
The global exchange will become the official fan token partner for the Dragões, one of the most famous football clubs in Europe. The sponsorship also sees the Binance branding appearing on the back of player shirts in the first season and on the sleeve as a sponsor for the next season.

The club is managed by Sérgio Conceição and includes prolific international players such as Pepe, Luis Díaz, Otávio, Mehdi Taremi and Matheus Uribe.
