With these, they are able to buy, sell and trade said players, who have different rarities. Until now, they have partnered with 150+ football clubs, many of them well-known. Examples include Real Madrid, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich, Juventus and the German national team.
SoRare in Switzerland : The FC Sion NFT Collection
The Switzerland SoRare launch was different. Recently, SoRare announced limited players with 1000 copies of each player. This is ten times the amount of the most common cards, so are priced appropriately. This price shift is a smart move from SoRare as it allows for more users to enter – specifically those who don’t have massive amounts to spend on the game. Many of these FC Sion cards are still available on auction (at the time of writing), some of which are under $10. Furthermore, there are cards available in the ‘Manager Sales’ section for $5-$10. This section of the market is where other managers can trade with each other.
What’s Next For SoRare?
Since the Sorare launch in Switzerland with FC Sion, the company have onboarded 4 clubs. Additionally, they have announced a new venture with Fantasy Football Scout. This new venture allows fans to use SoRare cards in a free-to-play game, launching in September. Clearly, this is just the beginning for the sport NFT giants. SoRare are testing their unlimited potential with billions watching football worldwide.
