David Beckham Coming to the Blockchain as Sorare Inks Deal With Top French Club PSG

Blockchain-enabled fantasy soccer game Sorare has inked a licensing deal with leading French team Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), allowing it to tokenize the club’s past and present soccer players such as David Beckham, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. 

Announced on Tuesday, Sorare also said it is launching its platform out of beta for users in the United States. According to a press statement emailed to CoinDesk, the U.S. is Sorare’s second largest market by user base. The platform’s official roll out in the country follows a licensing deal with the MLS Players Association signed earlier this year in June.
