Sorare has been busy at work, securing new deals and expanding its fantasy sports empire. With the world of football and baseball firmly in its grasp, Sorare has now turned its attention to another major sporting establishment. We’re excited about the reveal of Sorare NBA, the next step in the game’s journey. Both the NBA and the NBA Player’s Association have signed a significant deal with the game, allowing for this project to finally become a concrete reality.
The National Basketball Association
As North America’s professional basketball league, the NBA has been the sport’s top establishment since its inception in 1946. With 30 teams hailing from both the USA and Canada, the NBA offers a league at the sport’s highest level of play. The league has ventured beyond its confines and into other media in the past. NBA 2K took the action into every gamer’s home, turning the league’s action into a yearly video game release. Now, the league turns its attention to web 3.0 and who better to lead the charge than Sorare itself?
Sorare NBA Coming This Fall
Sorare NBA is now a reality thanks to a deal struck between the game, the NBA and the NBAPA. This agreement grants the NBA a stake in Sorare, although both entities have stopped short of revealing any further details about the arrangement. This follows on a similar deal that was reached between Sorare and the MLB earlier this year.
The new game aims to set new levels of fan interaction, with Sorare reiterating its ‘own your game’ motto. NBA’s very own Scott Kaufman-Ross said, “We know Sorare is making an investment to build out this platform. This is a new fan experience, so we want to make sure there’s sufficient time to build the product and the community and the fan base. It’s a multi-year partnership with enough time to build a sustainable partnership here.”
His comments were echoed by Sorare’s Ryan Spoon stating that “The way I would describe (the NBA partnership) is we are both very motivated to grow together and to make this as successful and broad and big as possible.”
Sorare Expands Further
Sorare NBA signifies a new avenue of play for basketball fans around the world. It merges the worlds of gaming, web 3.0 and basketball, creating a new experience that gives players more agency within this establishment. Although we do not have a specific release date yet, Sorare has announced its plans to launch the game this fall. With a community event just around the corner, we expect to hear full details about Sorare NBA very soon. What do you think of this new Sorare venture? Will you be playing NBA Sorare when it finally releases later this year? Let us know in the comments below.
