The Lliga Nacional de Fútbol, also known as Primera Divisió (First Division) or Campionat de Lliga, is the top football league of Andorra.

History[change | change source]

The league was established in 1995 through the local federation (Andorran Football Federation). Till that year the clubs played since 1970 an amateur league without any contact to a official institution..[1] The league joined UEFA and FIFA in 1996 so the Andorran clubscan play in the UEFA competitions.[2]

Until 2015 the league was known as Lliga Grup Becier[3] and during 2016 Lliga Grup Sant Eloi.[4] 2017 it was renamed as Lliga Multisegur Assegurances for sponsorship reasons.[5]

All the teams in the league play in the six stadiums owned by the federation. That also happens in all other Andorran competitions, such as Copa Constitució and Andorran Supercup.
