FC Andorra History
Throughout its history, Futbol Club Andorra has maintained its position as the most successful football club in the country. The club was the first football club to be established in Andorra when it was established on October 15, 1942 in the College of Our Lady of Meritxell. The club joined the divisions of the Catalan Football Federation and competed in the Spanish League and the Spanish Cup. FC Andorra made its debut in the Segunda Regional during the 1963–1964 season, ultimately finishing in the 11th position.
After competing in lower levels of competition for a number of years, the Andorran club was promoted to the Segunda División B (the third level of the Spanish league system) in 1981. They remained at this level for the next 17 years, with the exception of the 1986–1987 season, in which they competed in the Tercera División. FC Andorra came dangerously close to being promoted to the Segunda División during the 1988–1989 and 1989–1990 seasons.
When FC Andorra won the Copa Catalunya in 1994, it was the club’s crowning achievement until that point. The Andorran team beat FC Barcelona in the semi-finals (aggregate score: 2–1) and RCD Espanyol in the final, which was held at the Municipal Stadium in Vilassar de Mar. The Andorran team won 4–2 on penalties after there were no goals scored during regular time or extra time .
After playing in the Primera División for the 1997–1998 season, the squad was demoted to the Segunda División the following year (fourth tier).
To this day, their finest performance in the Copa del Rey came in the 1995–1996 season, when they defeated Palamós CF and Getafe CF before being ousted by Celta Vigo in the Round 16 of the competition.
In addition, the club had a futsal team known as FC Andorra Futsal between the years 1986 and 2013, competing in both the División de Honor and the División de Plata.
The Andorran club was acquired by Gerard Piqué’s Kosmos Holding Group in December of 2018, and in April of 2019, the team introduced its primary sponsor, MoraBanc, which is recognized as a powerful and a benchmark bank in Andorra. They went on an undefeated run of 22 matches, which led to their promotion to the Tercera División a few weeks later. In July of 2019, the club paid a €452,022 fee to replace CF Reus Deportiu in the Segunda División B after Reus were demoted for failing to pay its players.
On the same day, Nacho Castro was appointed as the club’s new head coach. On the 27th of February 2020, one of the largest business groups in Andorra Pyrénées signed an agreement with the club, becoming its “premium partner.” The reason for head coach Gabri Garcia’s dismissal from the club was poor results, with three consecutive losses and seven matches without a single victory .
Although the club was knocked out of the promotion play-offs to the Segunda División by Real Sociedad B in the first round in 2021, the team still managed to achieve a place in the Primera División RFEF, the new league of the third level of Spanish football. Despite this result, the team was able to qualify for the promotion play-offs to the Segunda División for the first time in 2021.
After defeating UCAM Murcia at home by a score of 1-0 on May 21, 2022, the squad earned promotion to the Segunda División for the very first time in their existence. This victory allowed them to advance from the third to the second tier of competition.
FC Andorra Stadium
In the past, FC Andorra played their home games in Andorra la Vella at the Camp d’Esports de les Valls. However, in 1983, the club moved to the Estadi Comunal d’Aixovall, which, after being renovated in 1999, had a capacity of 1,000 spectators. Following the closure of Aixovall, the club moved once more in 2015 to the new, smaller Centre d’Entrenament de la FAF facility
More recently, the team has been based at the Camp de Ftbol de Prada de Moles in Encamp, which has a capacity of 500 seats; however, since 2021, the club has utilized the 3,306-capacity Estadi Nacional for all home games following an agreement made with the Government of Andorra; the stadium had previously hosted FC Andorra games on a temporary basis in 2015 before the opening of the Centre d’Entrenament de la
At the squad’s match versus Albacete Balompié, which took place at Estadi Nacional on May 8, 2022, a record number of 3,631 supporters showed up to support the team .
The club made the announcement in August 2022, following their promotion to the Segunda División. The new stadium would replace the old Camp de Ftbol de Prada de Moles and would have a capacity of 6,000 spectators. The cost of the project was anticipated to be €26 million.
