The European Fantasy Football market was estimated at close to USD 900M per annum1 in 2018, and expected to double in the next five years. Expanding into more European markets early on in our growth is a strategic step for Sorare both in terms of market acquisition and brand recognition with users, football teams, and investors alike. With the inclusion of PSG to the platform, football fans in the UK and elsewhere will be able to leverage their football knowledge to play as a strategic manager and compete for rewards with skin in the game. PSG fans will be able to join the economy of their passions in a way that wasn’t possible before Sorare’s global fantasy football.“
