Messi joins Sorare
Sorare NFT platform appointed Lionel Messi as a Brand ambassador for the platform. The move is part of Sorare’s marketing strategy to expand its fantasy football services to football fanatics. The platform chose Lionel Messi since the football star is one of the greatest players in the history of football. Messi has had a remarkable football career, having collected five golden boots at the time of this publication.
As part of the consensus, the Argentina striker will work with Sorare to develop new content and fan experiences before the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup. The French start-up has expanded incredibly since its debut in 2018. Over 300 sports organizations and clubs, including La Liga, the Bundesliga, and Serie A, have joined the platform. The firm sparked a lot of attention in both NFT and football by raising over $600 million in Series B funding headed by Softbank.
The alliance with the former Barcelona player will yield tremendous results, especially when Messi leads his national team, Argentina, towards claiming the highly coveted Fifa World Cup. More improvements, partnerships, and deals with more members in the sports world are imminent as the platform expands its growth and number of users.
