So… How to Get Free Sorare Cards?

There are five types of free Sorare cards that you can get.

Let’s discuss the one easiest and quickest to get first – Common.

Further down the article, I will also explain how you can get your hands on one free Limited card, two free Rare cards, one Super Rare card, and one Unique card (yes, you read that correctly).

Free Common Cards

The Common cards are ones that are not tradable but they can still be used in some free-to-play tournaments (that can help you win cards from the Limited scarcity – which you can trade for cash).


Start out with 40 free Common cards and compete for Limiteds without any investment.

Common cards are grayish in color and are gifted to all newly-registered Sorare users.

Free cards of the Common scarcity

Whether you want to use the platform for your football (soccer), NBA or NFL sports team, as a new user, you get a welcome pack of free-to-play Common cards.

In the case of football fans to which this website is mostly dedicated, the number of free / bonus Sorare cards of the Common scarcity is 8.

However, it can potentially rise to 48.

So, how to actually get these cards with 0 investment and very little effort?

Throughout the Sorare onboarding process, you will be prompted to choose one of five major European leagues as the one you wish to play in first.

Let’s assume you are an English Premier League supporter.

Selecting your favorite league

Next, you will get a budget of 400 points to spend on 8 Common Cards from that league (2 players for each position).

The higher-performing the player, the more points he costs.

Drafting your Sorare cards

You will be able to use the eight players you chose when participating in weekly free-to-play tournaments.

Once your preferred league’s team is put together, you may repeat the process for the other four big European leagues, including Serie A, Ligue 1, La Liga, and Bundesliga.

This essentially means that you will instantly acquire 40 Common Cards without having to invest any money.

Since they cannot be traded, these cards have no monetary worth, yet they can nevertheless teach you how to play the game with 0 investment.

Additionally, the top 200 competitors from each of the five Common tournaments each week will get Limited cards. This means that even without spending any money, you can still be able to put up a squad of Limited cards and begin contending for significant prizes!

Your First Free Tournament

With Sorare’s welcome cards set, you can play the game cost-free for as long as you wish to.

Newly enrolled managers have the chance to participate in Common-Only tournaments and win Limited card prizes without having to spend any money.

So how to do it?


Start out with 40 free Common cards and compete for Limiteds without any investment.

You may enter your first tournament with your free collection of cards by clicking “Upcoming” listed under the “Play” button on the Sorare site (you cannot join Live or Past tournaments because they are already underway or resolved).

Navigating to Upcoming games at Sorare

Once you’re in the “Play” area, select the competition you want to sign up for (remember that first, you need to draft your squad of Common cards).

Free-to-play Sorare tournaments

Choosing your 5-player lineup is the last necessary step before you can enter your first Sorare tournament.

The players you selected in the previous phase will be those that are available for selection. Remember to pick those that you believe stand the highest chance of succeeding in their forthcoming games!

The starting lineup includes five players, one for each position on the field plus an additional player who may play any position besides goalie, as seen in the image below.

Confirming your Sorare line-up

Alternatively, you can enter the “proper” tournaments right away.

These offer tempting cash and card prizes.

However, in order to do so, you must first make purchases in the marketplace, either by acquiring recently released cards in the New Card Auction section or by purchasing a card listed by another player in the Manager Sales section.

Free Limited Cards

Most of the time there are a few hundred thousand Sorare managers competing for the rewards in the free-to-play Common card tournaments which makes competing for the Limited card prizes really difficult.

Free cards of the Limited scarcity

Up until September 2023, Sorare was offering 1 free Limited card to all newly-registered users who bought 5 cards from the New Card Auctions marketplace.


Register using our link to get a 50% discount on your first card purchase on Sorare (maximum discount $50).

However, they have now changed the sign-up offer to a much better one (and one we, partners, had been crying out for) – allowing you to get up to $20 in credits to spend on a card of your choice instead of praying to get a valuable player from Sorare (sometimes the rewards were really disappointing, hence the cries for a change).

Nowadays, the only way to get a free Sorare card of the Limited scarcity is to invite 3 friends to the platform. After each buys 5 cards from Sorare, you will be awarded a free Limited Tier 2 card.

Free Rare, Super Rare & Unique Cards

Although free Limiteds and even Commons are an excellent way to begin your managerial career on the platform, the recent update to the Sorare referral program adds an extra level of excitement.

In contrast to the previous version of the program, where you could obtain up to 29 Limited cards for every friend and one Unique card for the 30th friend you referred to the platform, the new program offers the opportunity to claim three additional cards of the higher scarcities.

After referring five friends, you acquire a Tier 4 Rare card, and after referring ten friends, you obtain a Tier 3 Rare card.

Additionally, a Tier 4 Super Rare card is now yours after your 15th referral. And last but not least, completing all the steps with your 30th referral rewards you with a Unique Tier 4 card.

Unique cards are at the very top of the food chain and are traded every day for tens of thousands of US dollars.

Free cards of the Unique scarcity

If you have a broader network of football enthusiasts among your friends, the current referral program provides an excellent chance to start building a diverse collection of cards across all scarcities at virtually no cost.

Your Sorare Referral Link

After registering on the platform, you can find your own Sorare referral code by hovering over the profile icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen and clicking on the Invite Friends link.

Prior to sending your Sorare affiliate link to your buddies, you should choose in which sport you wish to receive your free Sorare cards.

As things stand, you can choose from football (soccer), NBA and NFL.

Anytime someone signs up through your link, your Sorare referral reward is going to pop up in the top right-hand corner of the screen.

As you have already learned in this article, the game gives you a set of Common cards for free, but if you want to participate in more complex and prize-fuelled tournaments, you’ll need to acquire rarer players (starting from Limited and ending at Unique).

The main goal of the game is to outscore your opponents by fielding the best squad you can from your player card collection.

You will get more points and have a higher chance of winning money (in Ethereum) or playing cards if the players are better and perform better in real life (usually this goes hand-in-hand).
