Over the last couple of years, NFTs have slowly been working their way into major sports leagues across the world, but until recently there have been no collectible options for fans of second-tier leagues. Chiliz News examines how Sorare is expanding NFTs to second-tier leagues across Europe, in their most recent report.
More information about NFTs for second-tier leagues, and the full list of participating football clubs, can be found in the full report at https://chiliznews.com/burnley-watford-millwall-norwich-coventry-city-efl-clubs-join-spanish-laliga-2-in-launching-nfts-on-sorare
Sorare already has existing deals with Major League Baseball, and has announced that a version of their NFTs is in the works for the NBA, but this is the company’s first attempt at providing the same digital assets for second-tier teams. The company eventually plans to expand its collectibles to include lower-tier teams from Germany, France, and Spain.
The recent additions are part of Sorare’s upcoming “Second Division Europe,” competition, which will allow fans to collect, sell, and trade digital sports cards to create their own fantasy teams. So far, five English Football League clubs have signed deals for the new fantasy league, including Burnley, Watford, and Millwall.
The latest Chiliz News report explains that Sorare is working to conclude deals with 19 more English Football League clubs, after securing a new partnership with LaLiga 2, Spain’s second division. There is no news yet on whether Sorare has signed deals with French or German second-division teams, though experts speculate that is likely the company’s next move.
While Sorare is primarily a blockchain-based fantasy league, it has also seen recent success in helping to identify up-and-coming players. With such close attention being paid to the statistics of every player, Chiliz News explores how the fantasy league has helped fans to identify which players show consistent improvement, and are likely to make the move to premier leagues.
Michael Meltzer, head of business development at Sorare, said, “Many of today’s best players began their careers outside the top five leagues, and the EFL Championship is increasingly seen globally as a great source of emerging talent, so it’s important to us that our game reflects that.”
