During the difficult period of the new crown virus, many football clubs came up with new ideas to narrow the distance with their fans and interact with them. Apollon Limassol (Apollon Limassol), a small European country, Cyprus's first-class team, has a good idea. It allows fans to participate in the technical and tactical design. On October 9th at 17:30 at their home stadium Tsirion Stadium and Limassol Aris before the derby friendly match , Let the fans select the starting lineup online, and leave a message about what tactics to use, then fully follow the fans' opinions to implement.
在新王冠病毒的艰难时期，许多足球俱乐部提出了新的想法，以缩小与球迷的距离并与他们互动。一个小的欧洲国家，塞浦路斯的一流队伍阿波隆·利马索尔（Apollon Limassol）有一个好主意。它使粉丝可以参与技术和战术设计。 10月9日17:30在德比友谊赛之前的他们的主场Tsirion体育场和Limassol Aris，让球迷们在线选择首发阵容，并留下要使用的战术信息，然后完全按照球迷的意见实施。
Limassol is an important town in southern Cyprus, the country's second largest city and industrial center. Apollo’s coach Sofronis Avgousti told the public: “We hope to establish a special connection with the fans, hoping that they can feel their existence and representativeness of the team in the best way. From this friendly match, we will Continue to give the fans opportunities, let them help me choose the lineup and play style, but also give my players a chance. How democratic, I did not decide it alone. Players cheer."
How to vote? The club cooperated with the Socios.com software to allow fans to select the starting 11 players and tactics on the App or PC. The final plan is the one with the most votes. Not everyone is eligible to vote. You must first purchase virtual tokens and hold fan tokens on the platform before you can speak, so as to realize the profitability of the service platform.
Socios.com founder Alexandre Dreyfus said: "This will be a very interesting first in football, and it will be popularized sooner or later. Everyone realizes that without fans, the value of football clubs plummets. Fans vote for lineups and play styles. It is also the deep interaction between clubs and netizens that our platform dreams of, even if it’s just a friendly match, to get rid of the past simple greetings, autographs and other stereotypes. We hope to take this successful model and submit it to our other partners."
This is not the first time that fans have participated in the decision-making of a club or team. The Italian website "Derby Derby" revealed that some time ago, Juventus solicited the opinions of fans and asked them to select the music that the team played every time the team scored a goal, as well as the exterior design of the team bus. Spain also has it, and giants Barcelona also cooperated with Socios.com to allow fans to vote for the mural series of the dressing room. Lorca, the West C team, started the same gameplay as Apollo at the beginning of this year. The fans chose to start, but it was not as influential as Apollo.
