Hi everyone. I’ve been talking in the offseason with one of the creators of a new app that is partnering with teams and players to offer exclusive merchandise, game-worn jerseys,etc. and they officially launched today.
They have officially partnered with the club and have offered us an early access code.
You can download the app on Google Play or Apple listed under Momento Market. You can also click this link and it will show a QR that you can scan.
The early access code is: MonchisMen
BTW, we get no kickbacks, nothing for this promotion. Just something cool and new if you can afford 270 euros (starting out) for a kit. The club & site will sell the game-worn jerseys from the Almeria game. You can see those listed.
I’ve been in contact with the creator about doing some joint marketing with Monchi’s Men and Momento, but so far nothing has come of it.
So, just came across this article in L’Équipe. Apparently the flip side of the coin of SevillaFC and others’ partnership with Momento Market is that players aren’t authorized to give out their kit to fans. Then again, I’m not sure they ever were (I think they always had to pay something nominal), but I assume at a minimum this makes the fee/fine for giving away their shirt steeper for players
RT @lequipe Les joueurs de quatre clubs européens ne pourront plus donner leurs maillots aux supporters
PS - Couldn’t find the English version of the article, apologies, maybe someone can find it
That is true it does change things. Do the fines apply when players exchange jerseys? One positive is it may cut down on the ubiquitous signs asking, almost begging, for shirts. It can get back to the original spirit of it when players would be moved to spontaneously give their shirts away, assuming the fines are not too high.
On the other hand my son loves, loves, loves Jesus Navas. If I can get a shirt for him he would go crazy.
My name is Reda and I’m from the Momento Market team. Firstly want to thank @ChrisLail for making the intro, excited to join and get involved with the Monchi’s Men community.
Just to clear everything up for everyone - @RyanMoore I can see you had some questions on this in particular. We actually auction the first-half jersey so players can continue to swap with their second-half jersey with other players or give to fans. This was really important for us as we are all football fans, so we really wanted to protect that tradition, whilst opening up the ownership and access opportunities for fans of these great clubs around the world. So if you are Sevilla fan that lives in Mexico City or Virginia, US - you are now able to get a match-worn jersey from your favourite Sevilla player without having to worry about the provenance and authenticity.
This Twitter thread is great at explaining it all very simply too.
I’ll be roaming the forum so please let me know if you have any questions or feedback on the app (also feel free to get in touch with me directly), really keen to understand how we can improve the experience for Sevilla fans. Also looking to run an exciting giveaway with Monchi’s Men very soon.
Looking forward to the game later - hoping we get to see Dolberg in action.
Remember the give-away they did? Well, that didn’t go so fluidly either, if you could say it happened at all. I can’t say I have received anything. Chris tried to help in the process, but it didn’t seem very well executed from their part. They said there was a problem in the coding, and that after it ‘appeared’ in my collection, it would be send on its way to me. But after my latest response, the beginning of the month. Have not heard anything either. I would be surprised if it shows up. Very dissapointing.
Ours took a while to get to us…something like 8 weeks. I was beginning to worry and reached out to their helpline. They replaced with it takes them up to 30 days to process the request then send it. Not sure why so long, but eventually it came.
Got a response in the end from Reda talking about the warehouse changes they were going through and it eventually all got resolved. Thanks for that, the shirt was received as well today, a you could definitely say the wait was worth it and all is good in the end. Another thanks for organising the whole give away Chris and here it is with grass mud and sweat Oliver Torres his match shirt. My lucky number 21 as well as my birthdate, and a skillful baller like Oliver on the back, all in all Awesome.
