Sorare and Liverpool FC first partnered in 2021 to launch digital trading cards on the platform. With the expanded partnership, all LFC stars will continue to be available as digital cards in Sorare’s fantasy game for fans, collectors and players to collect, trade and compete.
Ben Latty, commercial director at Liverpool FC, said, “At Liverpool Football Club, we always strive to pioneer new technology for our supporters, with the aim of enhancing their fan experience and making them feel as connected to this club as possible. We are delighted to extend our partnership with Sorare and go further in bringing new and exciting initiatives to our fans.”
