POINT OF DIFFERENCE

 

Community First

 

Puerto Rico Clásico events are community first events that encourage Puerto Ricans to come together and experience 

the NCAA level game competition right here on island.

Entry to our events are free to Puerto Ricans and heavily marketed to high school volleyball players and club teams from across the island. 

Our teams typically offer clinics in the various schools around the island as well as at the Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico.

Our events reach a broad demographic of all ages, with participants and their families coming from all across the United States and young aspiring NCAA volleyball players and their families. 

Approximately 60 % of the audience is estimated to be local and 40% is estimated to be visitors. Our live streaming of 

the games reach an additional 150,000 spectators in addition to the 4,000 average attendees per day.

 

BEST PRACTICE MODEL 

 

Puerto Rico Clásico is proudly leading the way with a best practice model for our events and a comprehensive event management plan.  

Puerto Rico College Sports Tours supports the local Boys and Girls Club and other Puerto Rican youth through donations throughout the year. We plan to recruit only local vendors thereby stimulating the local economy.

We continue to support organizations that impact the lives of young Puerto Ricans by donating 5% of the proceeds from our Puerto Rico Clasico Volleyball events to the Boys and Girls Club of Puerto Rico.

 

EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES

 

Puerto Rico Clásico supports the development of micro businesses in Puerto Rico, as well as training and employment.
