Sorare adds SPFL license to its NFTs portfolio

April 21 – Sorare have added another European league to their NFT game portfolio, securing a multi-year license agreement with the Scottish Professional Football League.

Sorare will launch a collection of online fantasy game NFTs featuring top Scottish players from 11 of the Scottish Premierships 12 clubs. Rangers are outside the deal as they already have a pre-existing contract with Sportemon Go.

We’ve been looking at the digital market as a way to do that for some time and it quickly became clear that Sorare is a leader in this emerging category.”

Sorare raised $680 million in funding last September, valuing the company at $4.3 billion. It says it has 1.5 million registered users worldwide.
