FC Santa Coloma in Europe
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 feats were achieved on two occasions: the first match in the 2007–08 UEFA Cup 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 and in the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League First qualifying round when they beat FC Banants of Armenia 1–0. On the first occasion, in the return leg they lost 4–0 to Maccabi and were eliminated from the tournament. Against Banants, they lost the second leg away in Armenia 3–2, however the game finished 3–3 on aggregate and FC Santa Coloma won by the away goals rule, thanks to a last minute goal by goalkeeper Eloi Casals. It was only the second time an Andorran club have won a two-legged tie in Europe after UE Sant Julià.
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.
El Derbi Colomenc
The local rival of FC Santa Coloma is actually their neighbour's hometown football team UE Santa Coloma. The rivalry between these two teams has increased since the 2009/10 season when those teams were competing for winning the Premier Andorran League.
