As Club Bolivar, the most victorious team in Bolivia’s history, approaches its 100th anniversary in 2025 the club’s staff and executives have already developed an ambitious plan to celebrate this historic anniversary and create an unsustainable and competitive team.
After over 10 years of speculation and rumors Bolivar’s current president Marcelo Claure, and ACS Alumni, has finally given the fans what they have always wanted and more. The club’s own stadium, training grounds, international partnerships, and world-class players and coaching staff. On Monday, January 11th the team presented its highly anticipated “Plan Centenario.” During the presentation of this project the club’s executives had the opportunity to share with their fans some groundbreaking plans to convert this Bolivian pride into a world-class club. Throughout this presentation, several promising surprises were given such as Bolivar now being a partner of the City Football Group, an international football company that manages and owns international clubs. Not only this strategic alliance, but the creation of a new stadium and improved training grounds for the professional and youth teams were announced. The building of these facilities will not only benefit the club, but also the Bolivian national team since now younger players will be able to fully develop and explore their talents.
Although all of these fantastic promises will greatly benefit the team cost of this entire project will cost about $50 million. Bolivar’s current president has promised to pay for most of this project, but the club has launched new campaigns in order to raise funds to make this dream a reality. Fans will now be able to purchase membership cards and gain unprecedented benefits. The other obstacle this project faces is time. All of these facilities must be finished prior to the club’s 100th anniversary in 2025.
Through an innovative and ambitious approach, Bolivar has once again set an admirable precedent for other Bolivian soccer clubs to leap towards the future and take their club to the next level. If this plan is successfully carried out Bolivar will undoubtedly take another step towards becoming a main player on the international stage.
