Sorare has created a marketplace that allows players to trade digital cards, creating a new source of revenue for over 100 clubs, generating over $ 1,000,000 in card sales per month.
Italy is the # 2 country in terms of time spent on the game (1 hour 20 minutes per day), and # 4 in number of users with a growth of 36% month per month (due to the success of the fantasy game Fantacalcio in Italy)
Paris & Milan, December 1, 2020 – Internazionale Milano, Serie A football club, today announced that it has joined the global fantasy football platform Sorare
This partnership will allow Inter Milan card collectors and fantasy players to buy, sell and play freely with cards from team players, like Romelu Lukaku, Lautaro Martinez or Stefan de Vrij. Since the opening of its beta in December 2019, Sorare has experienced an average growth of 47% per month, and today has more than 50,000 users worldwide, with more than $ 5 million in cards exchanged.
From today, Inter will continue to develop their international brand by reaching several untapped audiences: players around the world as well as potential new fan bases in Asia and America, where Sorare is experiencing strong growth.
Sorare is effectively opening up a new source of income for football clubs around the world in a category that has not been monetized in the past: fantasy football games
For decades, collectors have been able to buy and trade football player cards in the physical world. The fans of Inter worldwide will now play with their favorite players using their digital maps in their teams. Inter’s card scores depend on their performance of those same players in their real-life games. De Sorare’s vision is to connect the passion of fans digitally to the events taking place on the pitch.
