Most recently, Piqué commented on his investment in a Sorare press release obtained by BTC-Echo:
‚I see huge potential in the sports gaming segment. In a digital world, fan attention is the most important currency. I am looking forward to helping Sorare grow its partnerships with football leagues, clubs and players.
Piqué and Seugé are convinced that fans are looking for new ways to be with their idols. That’s why the two see a lot of potential in Sorare’s fantasy football game.
Some top teams are in the mix – where does that leave Piqué’s FC Barcelona?
In 2020, Sorare made NFT history. Ticket sales volume grew by more than 1,000 per cent on an annual basis and 80 clubs joined the platform. Largely because of this, the nascent industry is receiving more and more attention from investors such as Piqué and the former vice-president of Coca Cola.
The clubs that have joined Sorare 2020 include world-famous teams such as FC Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayer Leverkusen. Gerard Piqué’s FC Barcelona is still missing to date. However, the press release states that more „champions“ are to be added by the end of the year.
