The Non-Fungible Token (NFT) platform Sorare brought the crypto world and the world of football together (football, for our American readers), even though they do not seem to have much in common.
But those who are fans of both disciplines can confirm that the highest volatility in cryptocurrency can only be compared to a penalty shootout in the final of a competition – and we have had some of them over the past season, similar to the strong emotions associated with market movements. Before the new season kicks off in many places in Europe – Scandinavians, who usually take care of their own affairs and already in the middle of their season – let’s take a look at what Sorare ready for this summer.
Kylian Mbappé’s home
world football superstar Kylian Mbappewho plays (and since this season pretty much sets the rules) for Paris Saint Germain, joined Sorare as an exclusive investor and player ambassador, a first for the project. The young striker, considered one of the best players in the world and probably the highest paid, will benefit from the help of Sorare as part of his philanthropic project Inspired by KM (IBKM). The project provides training, conferences, equipment and a special diploma for IBKM participants. As part of the promotion of this partnership, Sorare also offered a Kylian Mbappé Limited card to three lucky winners.
Are you a little out of the way (or have you just started to get interested in football)? What you need to know about Mbappé is that he is the 23-year-old striker, not only from PSG, but also from the French team that came to PSG in 2018 for the sum astronomical 180 million euros plus extra costs ($ 181 million) , and becomes the second most expensive player in the world (the first is his teammate Neymar, who arrived a year earlier for 222 million euros, or $ 223.4 million, from the Spanish superclub Barcelona). At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, he finished as the second highest goal scorer with his national team winning the tournament, and he is the second youngest to score in a World Cup final – the first being the legendary one. Pele. As all these names suggest, Mbappé is certainly in good company – but this is also proven by his track record.
At the end of the 2021/2022 season, he signed a 3-year contract extension with PSG, which raised eyebrows, something never seen before. Not only was this contract the most expensive in the history of football, worth 435 million euros ($ 437.8 million), but this gesture, which put an end to his transfer to real Madrid, was seen as a violation of financial fair play rules in the world of football. It has also been reported (which he has rejected) that his new contract will give him the power to have the final say on the choice of coach or the sale of the club. A partnership with Mbappé at this stage could certainly be seen as the best choice for Sorare.
A week of rivalry in MLS
For our American readers (but also those who like to follow MLS, at least to see what former global superstars are doing these days), MLS Rivalry Week kicks off on 9-17. July. Gareth Bale was to debut with Los Angeles FC during the fight against El Trafikbut he did not, nor did he Giorgio Chiellini. This may have proved that LAFC’s two new stars may be in high demand, but not necessarily necessary, as the team beat rivals LA Galaxy.
Although this game is over, the week continues with more games to play. Do not miss Columbus vs Cincinnati or Atlanta vs Orlando on the 17th or Austin vs Houston on the 12th and many more matches on the way.
