LigaPro is counting on the educational experience of Johan Cruyff Institute to promote, through its organization, academic training in the Ecuadorian football industry. The two entities have signed a collaboration agreement that will give all staff members, coaches and affiliated athletes of LigaPro the opportunity to obtain interesting discounts on Johan Cruyff Institute education programs in sport management, sport marketing and sponsorship, football business and coaching. Cristina Palés, marketing manager of Johan Cruyff Institute, and Miguel Ángel Loor, president of LigaPro, signed the agreement in September in Madrid.
