The executive explained that the company will offer a new plan to its clients, by which they will have access to the matches for PYG 105 thousand (USD 15), during the first three months, according to the web version of the local newspaper La Nacion. ‘We have been contributing decisively for many years on promoting Paraguayan sports.
