European Giants have joined Sorare in 2020

5 European 2020 Champions have all launched their digital cards on Sorare this year. Bayern Munich,
Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Porto, and Zenit with more Champions coming before the end of the year.
Since opening the beta in December 2019, 80 football clubs have joined Sorare from 11 countries to help
create a unique and global fantasy football experience.

Sorare is an opportunity for clubs and leagues to allow their fans to express their fandom with digital
cards, amidst the current lack of live games as well as to expand their international brand by reaching
several untapped audiences of fans. It is effectively opening up a new revenue stream for clubs, by
creating a new licensing category: fantasy football licensing.

Fans want to further engage with football entertainment

While sports fans have been able to collect and trade player cards for decades, this was limited to the
physical world. Sorare is on a mission to unlock people’s football fandom online. The company is creating
an open world of games with digital cards, where people can express their affiliation with a club or player,
build meaningful identities and relationships with it, and seize new economic opportunities around it. The
Sorare cards are fully licensed, and provably scarce thanks to blockchain technology, creating a new level
of trust for fans and clubs.

Fans collect digital cards of players for the same reasons they collect cards offline – status,
differentiation, identity, and membership. This also offers the most direct way of investing in the upside of
a sports player. Sorare’s current total addressable market is at the intersection of fantasy football and
sports cards and memorabilia that is respectively estimated at $5.4B and $18.6B globally. After having
acquired more than 50,000 users in 2020, Sorare is expecting to see these numbers more than triple next
year.
