Sorare already features more than a hundred clubs in its library, making it a prominent player in the fantasy soccer sphere. Other top clubs from leagues around the world that have been identified with the project are Paris Saint Germain, Atletico Madrid, PSG and Juventus.
Bayern is the first top Bundesliga club to be signed up on the platform. This does not make the club a novice in blockchain-related projects. The club had earlier entered into a collaboration with Stryking Entertainment. The partnership was for the production of digital collectibles of the club’s players. The cards would be used in playing fantasy soccer games as well as used as momentos.

The management reminded its fans that Sorare is a global brand that offers players great entertainment through fantasy soccer. The platform is a five-player per side soccer game in which each player chooses their team from 10 blockchain-based players.
It also offers digital cards that can be traded by players. These cards are digital collectibles that are valued based on the performance and value of the actual player they represent.
According to Nonfungible, a rating platform for digital collectibles, Sorare is gaining popularity among players across the globe. The ranking platform stated that it is presently ranked third globally with trading volume up to $243,000.
