Today we put an end to 2023, a year that for FC Andorra will always be the first full year in professional football. After promotion to the second division in the summer of 2022, the first team achieved salvation last season with a meritorious seventh position and has enjoyed, in this second half of the year, its second season in LaLiga. 2023 will also be remembered for winning the second Copa Catalunya in the history of the tricolour entity.
The year started wonderfully with a great win at home against Oviedo. A week later, in the first away game, Eder Sarabia's men were beating Burgos 1-0 at half-time, a victory that put them in the promotion zone. Everything looked great, but a bad second half doomed the team, which from then on, went on a bad streak of five defeats in a row.
The final of the Copa Catalunya, resolved thanks to a goal from Bakis in the last minutes to overcome Badalona Futur and lift the second title in history, was a turning point for the tricolour team, which also recovered in the league. Because despite not being able to compete for promotion, Andorra's end of the season was very exciting, culminating with a historic seventh place.
A summer of changes
The good first season in the elite, however, meant that the summer was very eventful, with a lot of changes in the squad. We said goodbye to players like Marc Aguado and Carlos Martinez, key figures in the team's meteoric rise to professional football, and there were as many as 15 signings. Despite the changes, Eder Sarabia's men started the season with two wins in a row, although it has been difficult to find consistency in this first half of the season. However, the team has remained out of the relegation zone in the first 21 matchdays and aspires to take a step forward at the start of the new year.
Beyond the first team, the club's permanence in LaLiga has served to continue to grow the professional structure of the entity and consolidate initiatives such as the Genuine team or the esports section.
