About Inter Club d'Escaldes

Inter Club d'Escaldes d'Andorra, often known by the simplified name of Inter d'Escaldes, was first established in 1978, making it one of the oldest clubs in Andorra. Based in the parish of Escaldes-Engordany, the team was a founding member of the Andorran Primera Divisió when it was created back in 1995. They have a number of nicknames, including L'Inter.

The club have been ever-present in the division since its formation, never having suffered relegation to the country's second tier; a feat which only three other teams can claim. However, despite their continuous top-flight status, the side have so far struggled to consistently challenge for major honours and they remain less popular than some of the division's other clubs.

Despite never winning a major trophy, Inter d'Escaldes have occasionally challenged near the top of the Primera Divisió league table. Their best performances came at the end of the 1990s and the start of the 2000s, with the team finishing in 3rd place in both the 1999-00 and 2000-01 seasons. The 2001-02 season marked the club's closest brush with major success to date, as they reached the final of the Copa Constitució for the first time. Unfortunately, they lost the match 2-0 to FC Lusitanos and finished as the competition runners-up. Over the course of recent seasons, the team have consistently found themselves in the Relegation Round of the Primera Divisió season. In the 2011-12 season, they were entered into a relegation playoff, but narrowly avoided relegation after defeating UE Extremenya over a two-legged tie.

Most of the club's matches take place at the Camp d’Esports d’Aixovall, which is known as the DEVK-Arena for sponsorship reasons. The venue is an all-seater stadium, with a capacity of 1,000. The side's other games are held at the Estadi Comunal d'Andorra la Vella.
