Sorare is a blockchain-based fantasy soccer game. 

It leverages the popularity of classic soccer trading cards and fantasy league games, enabling players to trade, enter tournaments, and win prizes with digital collectibles. 

It runs on Ethereum and utilizes NFTsprovably scarce tokens that live on the blockchain. 

Sorare’s unique model has won the support of key companies such as ConenSys, Ubisoft, and Opta, as well as the global soccer industry. Barcelona star Gerard Piqué is a seed investor, and many of the world’s most popular soccer clubs are officially listed in the game. 

This guide explains how to build a team, trade, and win on Sorare, all while enjoying the benefits of a decentralized, open network. 

Setting Up Your Account

Creating an account on Sorare is easy. 

You need to provide an email address, password, and nickname (i.e., your manager name), or you can sign in with an existing Google or Facebook account.

You can then claim ten free common cards as soon as you’ve signed in.

Building a Team

All new managers start with a budget of $400 million to buy 10 players. 

The game offers to auto-select players using “Beginner” mode, or you can opt to build your own team using “Advanced” mode. 

Many major soccer clubs have officially licensed Sorare. Most recently, Real Madrid joined the game, followed by British powerhouse Liverpool. It’s expected that more will be added soon. 

Once you’ve claimed your 10 common cards, you’ll be ready to enter your first league.

Trading Sorare Players 

In addition to the common cards, players are also available to trade on the Sorare market. 

Players are sold according to the following scarcity levels: 

  • Unique (1 copy) 
  • Super Rare (10 copies)
  • Rare (100 copies) 

Players are exchanged in auctions or as instant transfers on the Transfer Market (not unlike eBay’s “Buy it Now” function). 

Players are available individually, or sellers may list several in a bundled auction. 

To sell your own players, it’s advisable to check market prices ahead of listing.

Entering a League 

Sorare tournaments are called “SO5 Fantasy,” as every game is 5-a-side. 

You can get started by choosing five players to enter into the Rookie League. This league is open exclusively to new managers. Throughout the league, you can earn new cards to use in other tournaments. 

Once you’ve entered four leagues or played for four weeks, you’ll be promoted to “New Manager.”

Tournaments are free to enter, and there’s no limit on the number you can join.

Players can be selected for tournaments in the Gaming Arena tab. Every team must have a goalkeeper, defender, midfielder, and forward.

Examples of tournaments include:

  • All-Star League 
  • Under-23 League
  • Regional League

More leagues will also be added in the future.

Earning Points on Sorare

Points can be earned in all SO5 league games.

Leagues are scored based on data from Opta, with points awarded and deducted between individual players and the whole team. For instance, scoring a goal wins you seven points, while a red card or missed penalty loses you five.

Captains also receive bonus points.

Rewards are then paid out in each tournament; they include Rare and Super Rare cards, with over 700 distributed per game week.

Additionally, Sorare pays cash prizes denominated in ETH for first, second and third place in each tournament. Players can win up to 1 ETH, and the total prize pool is over 20 ETH. 

Prizes are also distributed based on the All-Star leaderboard. Topping the monthly leaderboard earns you a Unique player of your choice, while first place on the weekly is worth a Super Rare player.

Unlike other fantasy league games, many player cards are only available to tournament winners. 

Making and Receiving Payments 

As Sorare is a game based on cash incentives, you need to be able to make and receive payments.

In-game player purchases can be paid using Ethereum’s native token, ETH.

Funds can either be converted using Ramp’s fiat-to-crypto service or directly connecting to an Ethereum address via an app such as Metamask.

Once funds are added, you can begin to trade players, enter them into leagues, and receive real cash prizes.

Now that you know how to play Sorare head here to get started.
