Sorare investor guide — is this NFT soccer game worth it?

Sorare is the biggest NFT soccer trading card game, but is it worth the money as an investment?

First the basics of how Sorare works: At its core it’s a trading card game using soccer/football players. You buy and sell cards with the images of real life players. They have licenses with different clubs and they add new clubs nearly every week.

Now most people come for the collectible cards but they stay for the fantasy game – this is called S05, and basically these are fantasy tournaments where you create a team made out of the players that you own and they compete against other teams. If your players do well in real life, you know if they score goals or get assists, then you accumulate points. The top winning teams in each tournament then get rewards, which can be rare cards that can be worth thousands of dollars. In other words, you can think of this as a yield on your investment.

Now in this video I explain why you might be shocked by the prices when you first play Sorare, but being expensive doesn’t make something a bad investment.

What we do know is that

1) It’s still early stages. Sorare received $50 million in an investment round and plans to build a mobile app and ramp up marketing.
2) Soccer is the largest sport in the world, and FIFA video games make a lot more money than NBA and NFL, which could mean a much larger addressable market for Sorare.
3) 99% of people have not heard of NFTs yet, but will be coming to these games in large numbers in the coming years.

However I also address concerns that I have regarding Sorare’s long term existence, which is a huge factor behind any NFT investment.

I also outline some key strategies for making money if you do decide to play.

    Solid video as always. I am curious if you have gone back to Sorare and reviewed what has been happening over the last few months, as I believe a number of your questions have been addressed?

    With the largest Series B funding in Europe just being finalized, they have signed the full Bundesliga and La Liga while integrating real life rewards like tickets to matches. There are rumors about the EPL joining soon which would end questions about mote.

    While the people behind Sorare do not have the track record of Dapper Labs, I think it’s important to look at how they make their money. They do not take a percentage from secondary market sales and do not rely on pack revenue, like TopShot. This allows them to be intelligent with balancing their supply and demand to not flood the market and kill early investment value. Their main revenue source is through auctions, which have tight controls.

    You are correct about the collectibility of this product. Moments will be coming in 2022 for the Bundesliga, per a recent announcement, but procuring the rights for them is exponentially more complex as it involves multiple entities and business, whereas leagues like the NFL and NBA simply need the league offices to sign off.

    The onboarding and barriers to entry are still there and will always be a deterrent. This is not a product for passive investing as you mentioned. To do well requires a lot of time and money. Most people are not willing to part with either.

    Overall, it’s an interesting project and continuing to evolve, which we do want to see moving forward.

    Well done with this.

    Fast forward to October/2021 and your review is still on point. Even though they introduced the new limited card type and lower divisions, It's still a very steep double investment (time and money). I'm definitely interested but Sorare has many rough edges.

    Probably would have been good to speak to a few sorare users, as you can win Eth pretty comfortably. I have been on sorare since start of February, I have won four cards in competition worth around £1000, plus I have probably picked up around 0.250 Eth by hitting the threshold in the global D4.
    I initially put around £1,000 in and then around £2,000 in March and I have taken around £1200 out, so I have around £1800 of my own money in and because of the growth it is worth around £6,000.
    It is also a lot of fun and only time consuming at the start (when you are buying players).

  16. keep it coming!
