Victor Santos will stay at the helm of football in Andorra for the next four years, after being re-elected for a second term as president of the Andorran Football Federation (FAF).

Santos' first term brought considerable progress within Andorran football. The senior national team has enjoyed victories this year against Hungary in a FIFA World Cup qualifier, and Andorra in a friendly, while development work has also seen encouraging results at U21 and youth levels.

While continuing to develop existing projects, Santos said that emphasis will also be placed on nurturing women’s football. Andorra’s national women’s team has made its first appearances in qualifiers for the UEFA Women’s EURO and FIFA Women’s World Cup in recent times.

In addition, Santos’ opening term since becoming president in 2013 has seen the completion and opening of Andorra’s Estadi Nacional the following year, and the FAF training centre in 2015. Another project reaching fruition is the La Massana training complex, which will open next year.
