FC Santa Coloma is an Andorran football team, based in the village of Santa Coloma. The club currently plays in Primera Divisió.

It is one of the best Andorran teams in recent times.

History[edit]

Founded in 1986 FC Santa Coloma became the first winning team of the Copa Constitució in 1991. Since 2001 the club have enjoyed a great success in all the Andorran competitions standing with all the records in the Premier Andorran League (6), Andorran Cup (9) and Andorran Supercup (4 trophies along with UE Sant Julià).

FC Santa Coloma in Europe[edit]

FC Santa Coloma has two unique achievements for an Andorran team in European competitions, never repeated so far by any Andorran team: it is the only team from Andorra to win a match in any European competition and the only team that did not concede a goal in a match in a European competition. Both of these have been achieved in a single match: the first match in the UEFA Cup 2007-08 qualifying round against the Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv F.C., in which FC Santa Coloma won 1-0 at home with a goal scored by Juli Fernandez. However, in the return leg they lost 4-0 to Maccabi and were eliminated from the tournament.

Club rivalries[edit]

El Clàssic[edit]

The main rival of FC Santa Coloma in Primera Divisió has been always UE Sant Julià playing in a derby called El Clàssic. Both teams are strong in the Andorran Premier League and since the creation of the championship the clubs have been competing for being the champion of the top flight.[1][2][3]

El Derbi Colomenc[edit]

The local rival of FC Santa Coloma is actually his neighbour's hometown football team UE Santa Coloma. The rivalry between this two teams has increased since the 2009/10 season when those teams were competing for winning the Premier Andorran League.[4]
