The German Football Association has officially announced that it is joining the Sorare Fantasy Football Game. By virtue of the licensing agreement, fans can buy and trade digital NFT cards featuring the most successful national team, winning four World Cups and three Euro Championships.
Sorare’s latest win: Trading Card NFTs featuring German National Team
Die Mannschaft, the German National Football Team, is the second national team to enter Sorare. Last week, the French Team made history as the first national team to debut in the fantasy football game. The arrangement between the two teams covers the release of digital card NFTs. Sorare players can soon select the German team from the player card collection. Sorare is on the move to add more national teams after securing over 140 Clubs and Leagues in the game.
The fans can look forward to the release of digital card NFTs featuring the 18 players. There is no need to wait for long because the cards will be available for use in Sorare’s Global Fantasy Football game for the Euro 2020 soccer championship.
Recovering from the pandemic
Holger Blask, DFB’s managing director of marketing and sales, shared their intention in joining Sorare. This venture aims to find new revenue streams for the franchise. Their cash flow took a hit because of the restrictions on live sporting events. Moreover, he hopes the partnership can provide more fan engagement opportunities.
He adds, “Especially in the Corona pandemic, digital offers were and are the only way to enter into direct exchange with our fans. But even though the Corona crisis will hopefully soon be over, we want to continue to use the possibilities of digitalization much more intensively. Also, with our partners, and offer our fans new interactive opportunities.”
You can join and play Sorare through the website.
