The birth of a strategic partnership to certify the authenticity of Fiorentina’s match worn jerseys. For the first time in the world a club will value its most important asset through blockchain technology. Firenze 05.01.20 - For the first time worldwide a football club will use blockchain technology to certify the jerseys used by its players. In a moment where fake news and counterfeiting are a daily issue, Fiorentina and Genuino sign a partnership that aims to certify unequivocally the Club’s official jerseys. The first tests happened during last month’s ACF Fiorentina - FC Internazionale, played on December 15th, and ACF Fiorentina - AS Roma, played on December 20th. During these matches some of the ACF Fiorentina jerseys that have been prepared and worn by Viola’s players, have been certified by Genuino thanks to blockchain technology: each jersey has been kitted with a dedicated chip and each one of them has been linked with a unique and unchangeable code to certify the authenticity. The project, unique in its kind, will be unveiled worldwide, during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, happening Jan 7th-10th. The jerseys that will then be certified during the remaining of the 19/20 season, will be made available by Fiorentina to its fans, supporters and collectors through a charity auction. Giuseppe Barone, General Manager, ACF Fiorentina “This partnership is an important step for a Club such as Fiorentina that wants to be ready for the challenges that will arise in the future. Genuino’s solution, offering a product and a service extremely innovative, will allow the tracing of the jersey’s life key moments, creating a digital copy of the physical jersey, to allow us certify and authenticate the same, but also to help us fight counterfeiting and to involve our supporters through innovative products and activations, all over the world”. Eleonora Mulas, CEO, Genuino: “Building together with ACF Fiorentina such a prototype, unique in its kind, that uses and integrate extremely innovative technologies such as IoT, decentralized applications, smart sensors, artificial intelligence and smart contracts, and that at the same time will allow us to collect funds to help Meyer’s Hospital children, and at the same time to be on the frontline in the sport business innovation, is a great pride for our company. We can’t wait to present the project in front of Las Vegas CES guests”.
