News hardware Mercato: the football match NFT Sorare succeeds, where PSG failed

Certainly, the football card game collector intends to merge with the biggest names in French football. While PSG failed to land him as manager, the game Sorare meanwhile managed to sign a deal with the former Real Madrid manager. Following the announcement of a long-term partnership with Kyllian Mbappe, the football game based on cryptocurrencies and NFTs forms an exceptional partnership with Zinedine Zidane.

Sorare enters into a major partnership for its crypto- and NFT-based game

After announcing a multi-year partnership with Kylian Mbappe last June, the blockchain-driven fantasy football game continues to make headlines by reuniting with a big name in French football. On Tuesday, July 12, the collectible card game resembling a football manager announced that it is collaborating with football legend Zinedine Zidane.

The former Real Madrid player is very excited about the idea of ​​collaborating with the French company Sorare, which he sees as the future of collectible football stickers that he collected when he was younger:

“Collecting stamps for us was either before a season or a World Cup, and it gave us the opportunity to meet with friends and say here, I want this card” “The Sorare card is today digital and took over our vignettes of the time, Zinedine Zidane explains sadly.

As for Kylian Mbappe, this alliance is meant to be spread over several years in various forms.

Sorare is releasing an unprecedented collection of Zidane 1998 NFT cards

To usher in this long-term partnership, Sorare has released a first collection of NFT cards bearing the image of Zidane from the 1998 World Cup. These cards reflect the game’s collection standards with various rarities:

  • Limited (1000)
  • Uncommon (100)
  • Super rare (10)
  • Single (1)

Although Zinedine Zidane is no longer a player in the field, his 1998 card can be purchased for ethereum and played in certain tournaments like other cards in the game.

“For each tournament, legends will have the score of the highest ranked player on the team and the placement of their cards,” Sorare said.

Sorare: a legitimate competitor to the Fifa game?

Zidane therefore joins the long list of Sorare players. For some time, the game has been trying to gather a wealth of football icons to conquer a new audience outside the world of cryptocurrencies and the NFT. With this goal, the game has managed to hire players like Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé or even the Dutch legend Ruud Gullit.

With this type of partnership, Sorare’s goal is clear: to establish itself as a leader in the play-to-earn sector (play to win) and even compete with the biggest football matches like Fifa.

Although the gameplay is completely different, the game is somewhat similar to the Fifa Ultimate Team game mode. Every year in FUT you have the opportunity to buy cards with virtual credits to build your dream team and compete against other teams to win rewards, including FUT credits or player packages.

Well, in Sorare it is more or less the same without the matches to be played. You build your teams and you receive cryptocurrency rewards or NFT trading cards based on the results of all your players in real life. Unlike Fifa, you own its cards thanks to blockchain. You can thus store them outside the Sorare game and resell them at ease against cryptocurrencies (in this case ethereum). In short, a mix between Football manager and Fifa ultimate team (fut) web3 version.
