The ultimate fantasy football game

Sorare, an application which provides digital soccer collectibles in collaboration with big-name teams, has received a $50 million investment to grow its community and launch a mobile application.

What Sorare is, is is effectively a football trading card game whereby the individual cards are digital products which can be traded and increase or decrease in value based upon real world performances.

These cards are tradable with other players of the game and can be sold on the marketplace. Some cards, such as a Cristiano Ronaldo card, have sold for more than $100,000.
