Velez is a product of the famed River Plate youth academy having played in the same team as Erik Lamela and Roberto Pereyra, before leaving for another top-tier Argentinian team, Huracan, in search of first-team opportunities.
Nicolás Vélez started his professional footballing career with Club Atlético Huracán at the age of 20.In his debut season he found limited opportunities in the first team and playing only 26 minutes in a single appearance.Following the club's relegation in the 2010-11 season he played in the second division for the 2011-12 season.
After two years in Argentina and finding limited first-team opportunities he joined Spanish 3rd tier club Atlético Sanluqueño.He had an unhappy time in Spain, however, saying there were “many problems” at the Spanish club, so he asked his agent to look at options elsewhere.
He signed for Warriors FC in the S.League in 2014. He scored a hat-trick for the Warriors against Albirex Niigata (S) in a 4–0 victory, keeping them in contention of the title. In his first season in Singapore, he scored an impressive 21 goals in 26 appearances, second only to Brazilian Rodrigo Tosi (24 goals) helping Warriors FC to the S.League title.Velez capped his first Asian campaign by being named S.League young player of the year.
In the 2015 Singapore Charity Shield which doubled as the first league game of the 2015 season, Vélez scored the only goal of the match, winning the Shield and the first three points of the season for the Warriors. He scored two goals in the next game, a 3-1 win over Harimau Muda. He notched his sixth goal of the season on 24 April 2015 against fellow title contenders Brunei DPMM FC before earning a red card in the 69th minute following an on-field spat.
The South American also earned call-ups to Singapore Selection sides that took on Juventus, Arsenal and Stoke City in the last 18 months.
NorthEast United FC
In August 2015 Velez announced that he has decided to join Indian Super League side NorthEast United. On his joining the Indian side he said "I'm very happy to have this chance, but I'm sad to leave Warriors, because I am leaving behind many friends in Singapore.I want to say 'thank you' to my club for giving me the chance to show what I can do alongside some of the best players in the world."
