My name is Alejandro Aguilar, and I hail from the beautiful land of Costa Rica. My journey through the world of soccer has been nothing short of exhilarating, marked by numerous highs and a fair share of challenges. From my early days in the Liga Deportiva Alajuelense Academy to donning the colors of various clubs across different continents, my career has been a testament to my dedication, perseverance, and love for the beautiful game of soccer.


 Born and raised in Costa Rica, soccer was ingrained in my blood from a young age. It was at the Liga Deportiva Alajuelense Academy where I first stepped onto the pitch, learning the intricacies of the game that would shape my future. Surrounded by passionate coaches and mentors, I honed my skills and developed a deep understanding of the sport during my youth career in the academy.


My professional journey kicked off with Liga Deportiva Alajuelense, where I showcased my talent and made a mark as a promising young player. From there, I embarked on a journey that took me to clubs like Carmelita, Club Sport Cartagines, Pittsburgh Riverhounds, FC ARIZONA, and Sporting FC.

Throughout my career, I competed in prestigious tournaments such as the Costa Rica First Division, USL, and NPSL, testing my skills against some of the best in the business. As a versatile player, I have occupied various positions on the field, but my primary roles have been as a striker and center midfielder.

Over the years, I have been fortunate to taste success on multiple occasions, clinching six league titles, a domestic cup, and even participating in the prestigious CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football) Champions League.


I represented my country on the international stage remains one of the highlights of my career. With a solitary official game and a friendly match for the Costa Rica National Team under my belt, I am proud to have donned the colors of my nation. 


Beyond the confines of the soccer pitch, I find solace in simple pleasures such as BBQing with friends and family and indulging in my love for the NBA. These hobbies offer me a much-needed respite from the rigors of professional sports and allow me to recharge both physically and mentally.
