ANDREA'S SOCCER A.C.
Our club was born in 1995 as a non profit organization. Its goals are to organized, promote and make public the Soccer (Football) activities in the women community in our country and forming new players in order to help the development of the Mexican Women's National Team (WNT) program.
The idea behind the creation of Andrea's Soccer came one year earlier, after being witnesses in Montreal, Canada, of the poor participation of the Mexican WNT during the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying tournament.
The scores and final result of that event were disastrous, the attention from our National Soccer Association (FMF) was minimal, and the team’s previous training, non existent. Back in Mexico, the question was either to help maintain the group that played in Canada together, or start from scratch forming a new generation of young players for the next qualifying event in 1999.
When we formally structured Andrea’s Soccer in 1995, we took the second choice as our goal, the same that made us take the firsts steps in Mexico City and slowly growing to different areas of our country, not just developing new players and teams, but organizing tournaments and leagues, proposing and raising our voice when it was necessesary to the FMF board of directors in order to make women’s and girls’ Soccer grow in Mexico.
THE FIRST GIRLS’ ACADEMY
Andrea’s Soccer academy, opened its activities in 1995 and it was the first only-for-girls academy in the whole country. The firsts brackets were U-16 for secondary school players, and U-19 for High School. Since then, we have been working to develop brackets from U-12 to Open categories.

MORE SCOLARSHIPS THAN ANYONE
Andrea’s Soccer club inaugurated the practice of promoting our players to high schools and universities to receive scholarships, something that never happened in Mexico before. Today we can count more than 20 players (until 2007) and the number is still growing. The universities in which we have had or still have players studying with the benefit of a sport scholarship are:
MORE NATIONAL TEAM PLAYERS THAN ANYONE
Along the years, a great number of Andrea’s Soccer players have being or still are in one of the three Mexican WNT programs (Senior, U-20 and U-17).
We have added more players to the three WNT's than any other club and it counts not just for those clubs in Mexico but for those in the USA too, where, as you should know, there are many Mexican girls playing. And even more, no one have had the chance to have at least one of its players representing the Mexican WNT every year since 1997, but the Andrea's Soccer club.
Around 25 Andrea’s Soccer players had wear the green national training shirt (we called them "pre-seleccionadas", that's for girls in the WNT pool) and half of them at least, had wear the official jersey ("seleccionadas") playing at international games.
