FC Andorra have approved the bid to buy them from the Kosmos group, owned by FC Barcelona player Gerard Pique. 

With 206 votes in favour and one absentention, the move was approved at a meeting on Saturday.

There are a lot of beaurocratic steps to make still but on Saturday the team was started to be coched by former Barca player Gabri García de la Torre, who will have former Barca keeper Albert Jorquera as his assistant. 

FC Andorra, formed in 1942, regularly play in RFEF competitions and are currently in the Catalan Premier, although their best years (17 of them), were spent in Segunda B -- they even reached the playoffs and came close to making it to Segunda A in 1988-89 and 1989-90. 

They won the Copa Catalunya in 1994 after knocking out Barça in the last four and beating Espanyol in the final. Their best performance in the Copa del Rey was the last 16 in 1995-96.  

Debt and a deep instituional crisis almost ended the club in 2008. Now, under Pique and Kosmos, they could be set for a new era of success. 

In an interview with L'Equipe in November, Pique revealed that one of the projects he was working on included buying a football team. However, at the time he said he couldn't reveal any more.
