Major League Baseball (MLB), the world’s oldest major professional sports league, is teaming up with blockchain-based fantasy game Sorare to launch an online game.
Baseball fans and aficionados will be able to purchase and trade NFTs representing Major League Players, create teams with which they may compete for rewards, and connect with players, clubs, and the league during live baseball games.
The Sorare MLB NFT game will bring a new method of connecting with baseball, allowing the league to engage new fans around the world while also introducing existing baseball fans to Sorare’s 1.8 million registered users in 185 countries.
“The company’s focus on transforming fandom through an innovative combination of sports, technology and gaming to let fans truly own a piece of the game they love is unique and goes beyond borders – allowing us to bring the love of baseball to more fans across the globe,” said Commissioner of Baseball, Robert D. Manfred, Jr.
Nicolas Julia, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Sorare, added: “The connection between Americans and baseball is enduring. And baseball has always been on the cutting edge of new technologies and innovations, so we’re proud that MLB and the MLBPA have chosen Sorare to deliver an NFT MLB Game to fans globally.
More information about the game will be revealed closer to its release this summer.
