NOTE TO EDITORS
- A) How does the Sorare fantasy football game work?
On Sorare, users, called Managers, compose their virtual teams of 5 players: a goalkeeper, a defender, a midfielder, a forward and a field player.
Managers play their players in different championships for which the conditions of participation are clearly defined and which may concern, for example, the age of the players or the region of the clubs to which they belong.
Each team is ranked and finds itself in competition with the others within the classification which is based on the real performances of the players during the real matches. The higher the position of the Managers in the ranking, the more valuable the prizes they win.
Players are ranked by rarity. Each footballer has a limited number of cards bearing his likeness: 1,000 Limited cards, 100 Rare cards, 10 Super Rare cards and 1 Unique card. Managers compete against each other to collect cards on Sorare’s platform.
