The game of fantasy football never ends with exceptional collaborations. In the pipes for a few months, the trading card platform has finally entered into a major partnership.
Sorare offers himself an entire league, and not just any
The French unicorn Sorare has struck again with the announcement of a new partnership. This time around, the NFT-boosted collectible card game has just won England’s first football championship. Highly anticipated by fans of the platform, this new partnership once again shows the ambition of the French company to want to democratize its game among football fans around the world.
Premier League fixtures are among the most watched games in the world, with TV rights worth €3.5 billion last season. However, to obtain the exploitation rights in his game, Sorare paid a much less substantial sum. Several leaks speak of an amount amounting to 35 million euros per year.
Thanks to this partnership extended over four years, Sorare will finally be able to welcome Premier League clubs that have remained absent from the game until now. Thus, Chelsea, Manchester City or Arsenal will join alongside Liverpool (which had concluded a direct agreement with Sorare).
Concretely, this agreement will allow Sorare users to be able to collect and play with player cards from 20 Premier League clubs. For example, the partnership will mark the arrival of renowned players such as Halland at City or N’Golo Kanté.
In addition, this collaboration will give rise to rewards of a new kind, Sorare mentions in particular:

With 800 million spectators, Sorare intends to convert new football fans to its play-to-earn gameplay.
What is Sorare?
Founded in 2018 by two French people, Nicolas Julia and Adrien Montfort, Sorare is a game that uses the blockchain to distribute sports trading cards (Football, Basketball and Baseball) in NFT.
This play-to-earn bringing together 3 million users, offers a gameplay in which each player must compose teams of 5 cards to participate in specific tournaments:
Depending on the real results based on the scores of the real matches, players receive XP and rewards – ranging from more or less rare player cards to cryptocurrency (in ether).
Think of Sorare as an online game similar to FIFA Ultimate Team, but with one major difference: the rewards are in NFT or cryptocurrency, which means players can store and resell them outside of the game. Unlike FIFA Ultimate Team, where virtual credits and packs have no value outside of the game, Sorare’s rewards can be converted into real money. However, it is important to remember that Sorare also offers a free-to-play experience, providing common cards to new players.
This new-style gameplay continues to attract players despite the bearish backdrop around cryptocurrencies and NFTs. It must be said that Sorare does not seem to be necessarily affected by this crisis, since in 2022, the platform almost doubled its volume of exchanges compared to 2021. It remains to be seen whether it will do better this year with the addition of the Premier League on his board.
