Soccer NFT Game Sorare Raises $50 Million in Funding

There’s some really exciting news for all the fantasy football fans out there. Congratulations to Sorare’s astounding achievement in raising $50 million of Series A funding and making leaps into propelling their vision forward. It seems like it wasn’t so long ago that buying and trading virtual items felt far away from ‘reality,’ but here we witnessing the convergence between our offline and online worlds. 

The team behind Sorare is planning to use the funds to accelerate the hiring process of a world-class team, and to continue growing its ecosystem by onboarding the top 20 football leagues in the world, as well as launch a mobile application. They want these funds to be used in the best way possible to enhance the experience for the current and future community and create an environment where fans can celebrate, share and live football moments at a deeper connection. 

Sorare is working with one of the best venture capital firms in the world, Benchmark. Benchmark has backed up other major companies like Twitter, Snap, Instagram, and Discord. Benchmark led this round of funding along with the participation of other investors such as Antoine Griezmann, Rio Ferdinand, Oliver Bierhoff, Alexis Ohanian and Gary Vaynerchuck.

Sorare is currently a team of 12 people and they’re looking to expand their team. If you want to get involved, then check out their Careers page to see if you have any of the skills they are currently looking for.
