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

Definitely, the collectible football card game plans to join forces with the biggest names in French football. While PSG failed to bring him in as manager, Sorare managed to strike a deal with the former Real Madrid manager in the meantime. After announcing a long-term partnership with Kyllian Mbappe, the crypto- and NFT-based football game is forging an exceptional partnership with Zinedine Zidane.

Sorare Enters into Major Partnership for Its Crypto and NFT Based Game

After announcing a multi-year partnership with Kylian Mbappe last June, the blockchain-powered fantasy football game continues to make headlines by teaming up again with a big name in French football. Indeed, on Tuesday, July 12, the collectible card game that looks like a football manager announced that it is teaming up with football legend Zinedine Zidane.

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

Stamp collecting for us was either before a season or a World Cup and it gave us the opportunity to get together with friends and say here, I want this card” “The Sorare card is digital today and took our vignettes from time,” explains Zinedine Zidane wistfully.

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

Sorare releases a never-before-seen collection of Zidane 1998 NFT cards

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

  • Limited (1000)
  • Sometimes (100)
  • super rare (10)
  • single (1)

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

“For each tournament, legends have the score of the highest-ranked player on the team and the position of their card. Sorare says on his site.

Sorare: A Legitimate Competitor to the FIFA Game?

Zidane thus joins the long list of Sorare players. For quite some time now, the game has been trying to bring together a multitude of football icons to capture a new audience beyond the world of cryptocurrencies and NFTs. To this end, the game has managed to hire players like Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé or even the Dutch legend Ruud Gullit.

With this kind 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 games 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 option to buy virtual credit cards to build your dream team and compete against other teams to win rewards, including FUT credits or player packs.

Well, in Sorare it’s 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 reality. Unlike FIFA, you own its cards thanks to the blockchain. So you can store them outside of the Sorare game and resell them at your leisure against cryptocurrencies (Ethereum in this case). In short, a mix between Football manager and FIFA ultimate team (fut) web3 version.
