The Andorran First Division (Lliga andorrana de futbol) is the top football league for the country of Andorra. The league is a part-time league: all of the clubs and the majority of the players are part-time.

The league was launched in 1995 sponsored by the local federation (Andorran Football Federation) which was created just one year before, in 1994.

All the teams in the league play in the same stadiums, Estadi Comunal d'Aixovall and Estadi Comunal d'Andorra la Vella . The same occurs in all other Andorran competitions, such as Copa Constitució and Supercopa.

FC Andorra, one of the major clubs in the country based in Andorra la Vella have never played in this league. They play in the Spanish league system, because they are registered with the Royal Spanish Football Federation, but the team is mostly composed of players with Andorran nationality.

League System[edit]

The eight clubs that play in the league play each other twice in the same venue. After the first 14 rounds, the best four teams play a competition between them to decide the Andorran champion (play off per al títol), while the other four play to avoid relegation (play off pel descens).

The winners win a place in the UEFA Champions League.
