The famous Real Betis football team has landed on the Sorare blockchain-based fantasy football.

After Juventus, Lazio, Atletico Madrid, Porto, Schalke and Spartak Moscow, the Spanish club has also joined the teams with which it is possible to play thanks to the collectable NFTs of its players, such as Nabil Fekir.  

Now there are 40 football teams that have granted Sorare the official license to issue the NFTs of their players that allow users to earn prizes by playing weekly tournaments. 

Sorare’s CEO, Nicolas Julia, said:

“We are very proud to have signed this agreement with such a Spanish legend. We see this as a new key step in our vision to onboard the best football clubs from around the world and bring blockchain-gaming to football fans around the world”.

Sorare, the fantasy football game on blockchain

Sorare is a collecting card game of football teams, based on the Ethereum blockchain, which allows fans to exchange limited edition digital cards. 

Each player is represented by an NFT in ERC-721 format which guarantees authenticity, origin and digital scarcity. 

In fact, for each player and each season a unique card, ten Super Rare player cards and 100 Rare player cards are issued, and these can then be traded on the market. 

Over the past few weeks, for example, some unique cards have been sold for over $2,000. 

The cards are also used to compete every week in fantasy football tournaments that are organized on the platform, where managers have to assemble teams of 5 players to try to earn prizes and unlock achievements. It is possible to earn up to 2.64 ETH per week.

Managers get a score based on their players’ field performance and bonus points related to the power of their cards. 

A ranking of the best managers who are awarded prizes is drawn up each week.
