About United Fans

United Fans is a blockchain company, founded to connect fans & club managements worldwide. With Niv Tal at its helm, the company is looking to offer football fans and team managements the ability to interact, vote & raise capital through a platform that will increase their collaboration and strengthen the football community. On the one hand, football fans do not have a platform through which they can be involved in decision making, support or ownership of their team. The frustration among fans many times leads to riots & violence. On the other hand, a lot of football clubs fail to meet their annual budget obligations and feel like their professional and financial efforts are not being appreciated.

United Fans seeks to help out both, fans and team managements, by allowing fans to vote on issues while raising money for those causes. Football fans will be able to decide on issues such as a player transfer or a coach recruitment while backing that decision financially. Team managements will be able to improve decision making, using crowd wisdom. The platform will be powered by its proprietary cryptocurrency "Goal Coin."
