The club competes in the Premiera Catalana at the fifth level of the Spanish football league. The club was formed in 1942, and the highest level the club has played in is Segunda Divison B which is third tier Spanish football.
The fifth tier club is managed by ex-Blaugrana players Gabri Garcia and Albert Jorquera. Besides, Adria Vilanova, son of late Tito Vilanova is another staff in the backup room.

The club has gone up to the fourth round in the Copa Del Rey during 1990/91 which is their highest in their history before getting eliminated by Ceta Vigo. Even though there are no special accolades to show for, Andorra will be willing to climb as many mountains as possible to compete in the La Liga one day.
Dept and deep financial crisis almost ended their club in 2008, but with Pique and his firm Kosmos, there could be a change of fortunes.
Pique’s company Kosmos also have made business moves in tennis, esports, video games, eyeglasses, isotonic drinks, and organic hamburgers.
Wow. I’m honoured to announce that I will be starting an exciting journey with this wonderfully historic Club. @as_monaco will be my home for the next 3.5 years and I cannot wait to start this new challenge. #daghemunegu #NowItsTime pic.twitter.com/t2rB4Vqklh

It is understood that Cesc Fabregas and Lionel Messi have accepted to buy shares from the club.
After spending more than four years at Chelsea, Cesc Fabregas has opted to join Ligue outfit AS Monaco in order to team up and help his friend Thierry Henry whose side are in crisis because they are in danger of getting relegated this term.
The club also recruited the experienced defender Naldo which could prove to be crucial for the French outfit during the second part of the season.
On the other hand, Lionel Messi kick-started his new year with a goal against Getafe in the La Liga last weekend.
