German football club FC Bayern München, which plays in the German Bundesliga, is entering the world of blockchain-based fantasy football.
In the Ethereum blockchain fantasy football match, Bayern, which joined Bayern this week, already has over 100 participating clubs, including big names like Paris Saint-German, Juventus, PSG and Atletico Madrid.
The blockchain collaboration is nothing new for FC Bayern Munich as it partnered with Stryking Entertainment last fall to create digital collectibles for players. These cards can be collected and played as part of a Fantasy League-style challenge.
When announcing the Sorare fan deal, FC Bayern Munich indicated that the top 20 tournaments in the world are now available on console, which is truly global.
Sorare works like a futsal game. New players choose an introductory set of 10 blockchain-powered playing cards where they can create their own tournament team.
Sorare has reportedly also given players the ability to buy and trade limited edition cards, rated and higher value determined by the players’ realistic performances at the soccer league tables and their rarity as digital collectibles.
According to Nonfungible, a ranking site for blockchain games and issuers of collectibles and non-exchangeable tokens, Sorare has slightly increased ratings and is gaining popularity in the global gaming community.
At the time of publication, the platform was ranked third with a weekly trading volume of around $ 243,000. But when it comes to sales at any given time, Sorare lags far behind Axie Infinity, which is three times the fantasy football market.
Sorare recently launched in the United States, and the platform hopes to attract 60 million American fantasy sports players.
