This week Sorare has welcomed Aalborg BK as the first Danish club in their fantasy football game, while the French team Strasbourg Alsace also joined. The French side is the tenth club from the French first division. Sorare will also track the Danish Superliga, so players who transferred into Denmark can now earn points again.
Users active in Sorare, collecting player cards and using them in the bi-weekly matches, can now buy cards from both Aalborg and Strasbourg on the marketplace. New players are being auctioned all the time, and only the highest bidder wins the card. On the secondary market traders can find cards for sale by others.
With Aalborg joining Sorare, it will only be a matter of time before other Danish clubs join the game. FC Kopenhagen, Brondby, FC Midtjylland and Randers FC come to mind. Sorare has the ambition to sign all clubs for the biggest competitions from across the globe. Recently they added the German Bundesliga to their line-up,

Details about this are still lacking a bit, but Sorare also announced a new collectible NFT. They named it Sorare Moments, and these cards feature memorable moments.

How to play Sorare
You can play Sorare for free, but that takes away lots of the excitement to be fair. You need to purchase collectible player cards, and the players on these cards will become your team. Each game week you select the players, each represented by an NFT card, of which you think they will perform best.
For every game week managers will need to select a team from the player card collection. They will need one goalkeeper, one defender, one midfielder, one attacker and an extra field player. Players earn points based on the real-life performance of those players. Therefore players that play regularly, are active in winning team, hardly make mistakes, and score a lot of goals, are generally valuable. Each card can only be used once during a game week, but if you have enough cards you can join in multiple leagues.
If you make enough points, you will earn 0.01 or 0.02 ETH. Are you among the best? Then you will receive a free card, which are much more valuable. Learn more on how to play and earn in Sorare here, or sign up for the game here.
