Sorare, creator of the popular NFT fantasy football game, is now set to expand the game to Major League Baseball, partnering exclusively with the MLB and the MLB Players Association.

Team-Building Exercise With New Baseball NFTs

Sorare, known for its Ethereum-based NFT fantasy soccer game – one of the most popular on the blockchain – is broadening its portfolio with the addition of an MLB NFT fantasy collection. Co-founder and CEO Nicolas Julia drove the May 13 announcement:

MLB has been at the forefront of interactive games for decades … Today, as digital engagement and technology evolve for a new generation, our partnership will help a new and broader fanbase to connect with America’s pastime.

The project will be Sorare’s first new fantasy sport since its 2019 launch of fantasy soccer. Set to release this northern summer, the game will allow fans to build a team with the player NFTs they collect and enter those teams into tournaments. The results of the fantasy team will be based on the weekly performance of the real players.


Sorare’s Other Sports-Based NFTs

Sorare has been active in the sports NFT community, signing two new deals with the collection’s respective teams. In March, Sorare signed up MLS football league to its NFT fantasy football game. This time, US Major League Soccer joined the Sorare platform of collectibles – the first American league to join.

This month, Sorare is on the verge of closing a deal with the PGA Golf Tour. While the deal is yet to be finalised, Sorare is set to launch NFTs for the players, allowing them to earn revenue based on their NFTs’ sales performance.
