Blockchain-powered fantasy football game Sorare is looking to restart its live football game on June 16th. Several national football competitions will have restarted their matches by then. If Sorare is capable of registering the scores of eight licensed teams during a game week, then it will mark the end of the Replay Tournaments.
The Replay Tournaments were invented to tackle to the problem of the cancellation of all professional sports competitions across the globe. In order to keep the Sorare fantasy football going, the team would select playing weeks from the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 at random.
This was a good move by Sorare, because their audience kept growing. In the past seven days Sorare had 1241 sales transactions worth well over 61 thousand dollars. According to data from Nonfungible that makes Sorare the blockchain app with the highest trading value after the virtual worlds Decentraland, Cryptovoxels and The Sandbox.
Sorare Live Fantasy Football Teams
The live fantasy football competition by Sorare does not embrace every match. Instead the game is build around cards from players that are active at clubs licensed by the game. This means only a select number of teams, and therefore cards, will be usable in the game weeks after June 16th.
The English Premier League will resume its 2019-2020 season on June 17th. With West Ham United there’s only one club from involved within the fantasy football game. The Italian Serie A will resume on June 20th. Napoli, AS Roma, Juventus and Lazio Roma represent the Italian league inside the fantasy football game.
On June 8th the Spanish La Liga will resume. With Valencia, Athletico Madrid, and Betis Sevilla there are three clubs in Sorare. The German Bundesliga resumed its competition last month with Schalke 04 and Bayer Leverkusen. The last competition on the list is the Portuguese one. With Sporting, Benfica and FC Porto the three biggest teams in the country are part of Sorare.
This would bring the total of eligible teams up to 13 by June 20th. It’s in the line of expectations that player cards from these clubs will go up in value in the coming weeks, as players want to stay in the action. Register to play Sorare here.
