Joel Adrián Huiqui Andrade (born February 18, 1983 in Los Mochis Sinaloa, Mexico) is Mexican football player who currently plays for Cafetaleros de Tapachula on loan from Morelia. His paternal surname is of Mayo origin (a group of indigenous of Sonora and Sinaloa); it means "eagle."

Joel Huiqui started his career in Cruz Azul Hidalgo in the Primera Division 'A' which is the youth team of Cruz Azul, but debuted with C.F. Pachuca as a loan from Cruz Azul who did not debut him. He debuted in a game over CF Querétaro in a 0-0 tie in the 2003 Apertura. Playing two tournaments with Pachuca in a total of 38 games, he was later given back to Cruz Azul, where he earned a starting eleven position in 2004. Huiqui played in Mexico minor U-23 and for the senior Mexico national team, in the qualification for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, as well as the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup, where Mexico placed 4th. At the final team, Argentine coach Ricardo La Volpe left Huiqui out of the 23 players who went to the 2006 World Cup.

He became infamous for an incident during the 2009 Liguilla semi-final against Morelia where he blatantly used his hand to prevent Wilson Tiago Mathías from scoring by tossing the ball away. Now ironically he plays for Monarcas Morelia. [1]
