UE Engordany Youth Development System
Beyond the shirt, it is the style of play of UE Engordany which must be recognizable on the pitch. The objective is to build, step by step, a player as complete as possible and able to play in the first team. At the UEE, the school component is just as important as football since we support young adults in their first professional experience.
- The football school is based on awakening, the pleasure of living and playing together.
- Pre-training emphasizes the development of motor and technical skills. It’s a pivotal period in the progression of UE Engordany’s youngsters as they move from 7-11 football on the pitch.
- Training allows players to take on new dimensions through competition media. In its training policy, UE Engordany also wishes to be the spearhead of Andorran football training by integrating and training a large number of players for the Andorran selection.

UE Engordany History
In the major venue of Engordany on October 2, 1980, Manuel Puerta Martn, Manuel Varela Valés, and Josep Rodrguez Sànchez established the club as the Unió Esportiva Engordany Futbol Club. On January 28, 1981, the club was officially constituted, and it was later renamed simply as UE Engordany. The club became a member of the FAF in 2001 and started playing in the Segona Divisió the following year. They were eventually moved up to the Primera Divisió the following year. However, after only one season in the Andorran top league, the team was demoted the next year and played in the second division.
They had a strong showing in the Andorran 2nd division in the 2006–2007 season, finishing in third place overall. Due to the fact that FC Santa Coloma’s B Team finished in second place but was ineligible for promotion to the first level, they were forced to compete in the play-offs against Encamp, who placed seventh in the first division. They were able to earn promotion to the Andorran top division for the 2007–08 season by virtue of their home record of 2–1 victory (goals scored by Rubén and Joan Marc) and their away record of 3–3 tie.
The club finished in seventh place and will compete against UE Extremenya in the relegation play-offs. The game at home was won by a score of 2–3, but the game away was won by a score of 3–0. As a result, the team will continue to compete at the highest level of Andorran league competition for the 2008–2009 season. Although UE Engordany were relegated to the second level in the 2012–13 season after ending the regular season in eighth place, the club was able to return to the top flight after winning first in the second division in the 2013–14 season.
During the years 2015 and 2016, the club had an agreement and collaboration with the Spanish Football Academy Alwaysoccer Barcelona for the sports development and training of both entities. At the end of the season, the club achieved the Copa Constitució final for the first time in their history after defeating two of the biggest clubs in Andorra, Lusitans and Sant Julià, but they lost 3–0 to UE Santa Coloma. In 2018, the club achieved the second.
The two clubs of Escaldes-Engordany that have competed in more seasons of the Primera Divisió—UE Engordany and Inter Club d’Escaldes—have a good rivalry with one another. UE Engordany and Inter Club d’Escaldes.
UE Engordany Stadium
The matches of the Primera Divisió and Segona Divisió are organized by the Andorran Football Federation and played at the venues that are controlled by the Andorran Football Federation. In addition, the federation is responsible for allocating the stadiums and playing fields that will be used for the training sessions of each team.
Since the 2016–17 season, FC Encamp has been the only team in Encamp to have its very own stadium, which is known as Camp de Futbol d’Encamp and is located in Prada de Moles. Former matches from the Primera Divisió and Segona Divisió were played at the Camp d’Esports d’Aixovall up to the year 2016.
