Sorare is now the official partner of the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga. This means that gamers can now trade, collect and compete against all players in both leagues.
The fantasy sports company Sorare from Paris tears one deal after the other every week. After it was last funded by investors with US $ 680 million in the Series B financing round – the largest investment in European history – more news for gaming and sports enthusiasts will follow this week:
Because Sorare is now the official partner of the 1st and 2nd Bundesliga. This emerges from a press release from the DFL. Accordingly, the subsidiary Bundesliga International , which takes care of the marketing of the two top divisions, is entering into a cooperation with the French company up to and including the 2022/2023 season. As a result, gamers can now collect and swap all footballers from the two major football houses as NFT cards and have them compete against each other in their teams. Earlier, Sorare announced a similar deal with the Spanish LaLiga.
Bundesliga deal is a coup
The game principle is based on scarcity. In general, every footballer at Sorare has three different rarity levels that determine the number of replications. There are 100 copies with the rarity “Rare”, 10 versions with “Super Rare” and a single “Unique” NFT card. In addition, the value is also influenced by the actual performances of the players. For example, if Robert Lewandowski surpasses his goal record from last season, his NFT card should also increase in market value.
In addition, you can have your team compete against teams from other players. The managers who “couch” the team get points for every win. The higher the number of points, the better prizes there are to win.
Similarities to NBA Top Shots
In addition, it should not stop with the NFT trading cards of the players. Together with the DFL, Sorare plans to release so-called “moments” for purchase in the future. As with NBA top shots, these are short video clips that show the highlights of different games and can be traded and collected in the NFT game.
Women’s football leagues are on Sorare’s agenda
The currently rapidly growing company would like to use the millions it has just received to increase the number of employees and to open an office in the USA. In addition, it is planned to provide financial support to initiatives for sporting activities by young people as well as start-ups in this area in the future.
