Argentina’s renowned Boca Juniors soccer club to play in Costa Rica

August 20, 2010

 

Famed Argentine soccer team Boca Juniors have confirmed they will play two games in Costa Rica in early October. According to Andrés Navarrete, spokesman for the event promotion firm Addictive Entertainment, Boca Juniors will play against Saprissa Oct. 5 at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium in the northern San José district of Tibás, and on Oct. 7 against La Liga of Alajuela at the Alejandro Morera Soto Stadium in that northwestern Central Valley city.
 
“Boca has guaranteed in the terms of the contract that they will bring their top team, nobody from their reserve team or second-division team,” Navarrete said.
 
Boca Juniors are one of the most successful club teams in international soccer, and Argentine greats such as Diego Maradona, Gabriel Batistuta, Juan Riquelme and Carlos Tévez have worn the team’s trademark blue-and-yellow jersey. According to Navarrete, bringing Boca Juniors to Costa Rica carries a price tag of about $1 million.
 
Saprissa and La Liga are the two most successful Costa Rican teams, having won 51 first-division titles between them.
 
Tickets for the games can be purchased at www.specialticket.net at a cost of between ¢11,000 ($22) and ¢32,000 ($63).
