Sorare, a player-owned fantasy sports game leveraging NFTs, announced its multi-year agreement with Major League Soccer (MLS). According to Sorare, they will launch NFTs for each MLS player starting in spring 2022.
In addition, Sorare will also launch the next-gen fantasy game for MLS. Through the game, players can trade and collect their favorite players and teams via NFTs. The collaboration will surely bring joy to fantasy sports players.
Sorare Brings A New Era to Fantasy Game and Sports
According to Sorare, they are combining their free-to-play fantasy game with collectible NFTs. They believe this will unlock a new era of fantasy games and sports.
Aside from that, Sorare thinks fantasy players will be more interested in the idea of NFTs because they’ll see their favorite MLS players as collectibles.
The Ethereum-based fantasy game developer opened its office in the US in late 2021. Now they’ve reached a major milestone by collaborating with North America’s most-watched soccer league.
According to Ryan Spoon, Chief Operating Officer of Sorare: “We’re excited to welcome Major League Soccer to our Sorare family. Our global community of sports fans is eager to start collecting and playing with their favorite teams and players from the league.”
“From collectors to first-time NFT buyers, our NFT x Fantasy model uniquely engages fans with the sport they love. It’s in a way that goes beyond just spectating, and makes them feel truly connected to each team, player, and game.”
Chris Schlosser, Major League Soccer’s SVP of Emerging Ventures, also expressed his excitement about the partnership:
“We’re excited to continue our progressive approach to bring NFTs to MLS with industry-leader Sorare. Utilizing the latest technology to provide fans the opportunity to add MLS players and future stars to their personal collections. It also gives them an interactive free-to-play fantasy soccer game made Sorare the obvious choice.”
