Héctor Bracamonte, "Boca's" pupil, who is playing now in your championship, says that here there are all possibilities for this purpose. As for the work in Argentina, we are the unique profitable club in the country. Partners are interesting in our fans - 40 % of the population support "Boca". That's why such companies as Nike, LG, Coca-Cola, Mastercard and others are ready to be company's sponsors.

During the three-hour master class Mr. Cobian also told about the "Boca's" history and great players, unending rivalry with "River Plate", work with young pupils of the club and many other things.
