Cristian Higuita (born January 12, 1994) is a Colombian footballer that plays for Orlando City of Major League Soccer.



Higuita made his debut with Deportivo Cali in 2009. A year later, he played a minor part in Cali's campaign winning the 2010 Copa Colombia. In 2011 he made his debut for Cali in Categoría Primera A and during the 2014 season helped the club capture the 2014 Superliga Colombiana.

In January of 2014 it was reported that Orlando City SC would be signing Higuita along with his Deportivo Cali teammate Carlos Rivas.[1]


Higuita was called up to represent the Colombia under-20 national team to take part in the 2013 South American Youth Championship. However, suffering an injury prior to the event, Higuita only played one match against Chile to 'officially' be part of the squad. Colombia went on to win the event and Higuita earned the silverware for playing at least one match.
