    There is a stand called "Main Street News" in the city on your way to the park, go straight, then right and its a little booth right in front of the PRO-AM arena. Just visit him every time he's open and eventually a Main Street News t-shirt will show up in your closet in your MyCourt. You need to wear this shirt and visit the Newsstand when its open, if you don't have the shirt on you can't buy from the stand. The guy in the stand will talk to you and you'll have the option to press cn_Y which lets you in the shop. The cheapest skill boost in there is 200VC.

    x JohnnyRogue xOh what a bummer, I think I choose the 150 VC option, but I don't think I ran into the second opportunity yet. Can you post the link to the video that you watched this? I can't seem to find it

    RoboTicS83I've only gotten 1 opportunity from Coach, he offered me an Adidas endorsement for wearing their shoes in season games; 35 VC per game for wearing them. I accepted. After few games played (around 28th of November 2017 in 1st season) he sent me message on the phone that he left me T-shirt to wear in the Neighbourhood (black colour with some text on it). I went to MyCOURT and dressed it up, after that I went to the "Main Street News" stand and talked to the man Erik (when he was opened). I bought boost pack from him (200 / 2000 VC). And there goes the Cheevo!

    G3n CarthThanks for the guide. I kept trying to buy the boosts without realizing I needed the shirt on. As soon as I got the shirt, it worked like a charm!

    Just to add on this solution made by iFlyHi, you must accept the cheaper endorsement during the first few games in your rookie season, if you decline both times you lose your chance on your current save and you can't buy boosts without the endorsement.
    Once you do accept it you get a shirt, equip it then talk to the newsstand guy, then you can buy boosts

    RoboTicS83then just walk over The Newsstand to the guy, when he is open and talk to him (cutscene). otherwise you don't own the correct T-shirt that should be given to you by Coach. I think it's written Newsstand on the black t-shirt if I'm correct, am not 100% sure what's written on it, but can check and tell you later.
