Unió Esportiva Santa Coloma, also known as UE Santa Coloma, is a football club from Andorra based in the village of Santa Coloma. The club currently plays in Primera Divisió.

History[edit]

UE Santa Coloma was founded in 1986. The team plays in the Primera Divisió after winning the Segona Divisió in the 2007–08 season. The club made its first appearance in European competition in the 2010–11 UEFA Europa League after finishing second in the league in the 2009–10 season. In 2013 the team won his first trophy in the Copa Constitució after defeating 3-2 UE Sant Julià in the average time.

Colours and badge[edit]

Old badge (until 2013)

Yellow is the traditional UE Santa Coloma color. Manly of the home kits alternate yellow and black. Until 2013 the badge was representing Santa Coloma's pre-romanical church tower and the most traditional team icon, the squirrel.

Nowadays still representing the Santa Coloma's squirrel and the colours of the Andorran nation with the motto's country "Virtus Unita Fortior".

Support[edit]

The club's nickname, as seen from the crest, is Esquirols (Squirrels) due to the number of the animals that live around the town of Santa Coloma. There is a long-standing tradition for a number of fans to wear squirrel costumes at the club's last home game of each season.[citation needed]
