Crypto meets soccer (football) - goal or red card?

Recently there are lots of projects focused on and targeting football/soccer. Crypto is affecting football in so many ways - shirt sponsorship, fan tokens, stadium rights, trading cards, fantasy sports, betting/gambling.

Here's a list of a few projects:

Chiliz with their token $CHZ have some impressive partners - Manchester City, A.S. Roma, PSG, FC Barcelona (the BIG teams!) etc.

They have their own app on to trade fan tokens and take part in your teams community.

Sorare bills itself as 'Global Fantasy Football' and is a kind of trading card concept.

Again some great partners; from Ajax to Yokohama Marinos.

For NFTs, Topps had their Bundesliga and Champions League series, and MLS too.
