For many years, the Football World has always been at the crossroads of two other worlds: collectible cards and fantasy leagues. Who has never dreamed of finishing their famous Panini album? Or to see his club win online against his friends? With the arrival of cryptos and the Blockchain, Sorare decided to go even further! Indeed, this project brings together these 3 worlds in the same place thanks to the use of the Ethereum blockchain (ETH) and NFT (Non Fungible Token). And the project gets straight to the point by signing a partnership with the legendary Olympique de Marseille (OM)! An iconic club with busy news, as rumors of takeovers multiply.

Indeed, it is with these players that you will build the best teams, in order to lift prestigious trophies on your own, and then win and sell cards to others! A pleasant way to combine investment, earnings and fun of the game!

- FC Nantes;
- AS Saint-Etienne;
- Juventus of Turin;
- Atletico de Madrid;
- FC Porto.

On the Sorare platform, our supporters will interact with their favorite players. And, through its international influence, American and Asian users of the game will be able to better get to know our players, our club and our brand. ”
The Marseille club therefore sees Sorare as a leading partner in order to strengthen its ties with its supporters.
Nicolas julia, CEO of Sorare, does not hide his ambitions for the future:
“We have a very active French community of Sorare managers and we are delighted to allow them to play with OM cards on our platform. Thank you to Olympique de Marseille for believing in our vision of global fantasy football and developing rare digital cards as a new collector’s item. This is an important step in our ambition to have full coverage of Ligue 1 clubs. “
