Star footballers Neymar and Kylian Mbappé are now among the player cards that collectors and gamers can obtain in the fantasy football game Sorare. The Paris-based company signed a licensing agreement with Paris Saint German. As a result gamers can now obtain cards from all first team players from PSG and use them in their fantasy football teams.
The first cards of Paris Saint Germain will start on Tuesday 7AM UTC. Cards of every player will go on sale through an auction. With more than 4 hours on the countdown, the first card for Kylian Mbappé already has a 1.5 ETH bid. Neymar is currently priced at 0.823 ETH.
A new element added to the licensing deal, is the addition of legendary players. Sorare added a special card of David Beckham, who played for PSG in 2012-2013. However, Beckham retired from football years ago. Therefore this player card can’t be used in the weekly games.
What is Sorare?
Sorare is a fantasy football game powered by blockchain technology. The project also has support from game publisher Ubisoft through the company’s entrepreneurs lab. The fantasy football game is enjoying lots of hype in recent months. Consistently the game is among the most applications on the Ethereum blockchain. In July the company received a four million dollar investment to push the game forward. Before the end of the year, the Paris-based company wants to have approximately 150 different clubs in their portfolio.
Blockchain technology introduces actual scarcity to digital cards, so these cards have a limited supply. Players can use the cards they’ve bought to create a fantasy team. Each card represents a real player. Based on the performance of that player on the actual pitch, the card holders will earn points. Every week the teams with the most points will earn new cards as a reward.
The cheapest cards generally sell for a couple of dollars, while the most wanted ones go for well over a thousand dollars a piece. Join the game!
