Anyone that has remotely any clue about soccer, knows that Bolivar is the biggest and most successful club in Bolivia. Marcelo Claure, Bolivar’s president, released the “Plan Centenario” on January 11, which is a project that will make Bolivar an even better club. For any soccer fan in the school, I know this article will be specially interesting for you.
Even though it’s filled with passion and love, Bolivian soccer is not of the highest level compared to other countries. I believe this plan could be the start to change that. Bolivar celebrates its 100th anniversary on 2025, and these are the main highlights Bolivar has set as target for when that moment comes:
- Bolivar will build a stadium with a capacity for 25,000 individuals
- Bolivar will start 2 high intensity training places, one in La Paz and one in Santa Cruz, in order to exploit young talents to the fullest
- By 2025, Bolivar will have won the Copa Sudamericana or reached the final stage in Copa Libertadores
- In the presentation, Bolivar’s agreement with the German apparel brand Puma, was made public.
- To finish this off, Bolivar has made an alliance with Manchester City, one of the biggest clubs in Europe.
This entire project will cost Claure around $50 million dollars, but hopefully after this plan is finished, Bolivar will be a self-sustainable institution.
