1Not a great first post.
My grandmother used to say (when we were kids, complaining as kids do that there was not anything do): "Only unintelligent children ever get bored."
Cordoba may not be a particularly attractive-looking or touristy city, but it is great from a historical point of view, and the people are especially fun and funny. You can always look for people in your hostel to go to dance clubs ( boliches) late at night. Take an inside tour at the Manzano Jesuitica. Just walk around and look at the churches. There are free tours from the tourist info offices, ask there. If you do not speak Spanish, sign up with Couchsurfers, join a community conversation page, and ask in English for someone to show you around (it is not just a place to crash for free). Or take a Spanish course, but do it to learn Spanish, not just to find people to party with.
The Sierra de Cordoba to the west, and the Transierra further west, (avoid Carlos Paz unless you just want to go to dance clubs), are a wonderful natural area for horseback riding, camping, hiking and swimming in clean rivers.
You are the master of your own voyage: any place can be boring, anyplace interesting.

4River Plate v Boca Juniors - 2nd Feb
I understand that the above match is taking place in Cordoba a week on Saturday. I am very keen to go but am unable to buy tickets as we are currently travelling and cannot collect them in Cordoba before the cut off date of 29/1.
I have tried asking various hostels in Cordoba but they have simply referred me to the website and said the only way to get tickets is with a credit card.
We will be arriving on the morning of 2nd and I would really appreciate any bright ideas anyone may have.
