About Edson Alvarez

Early Life

Lvarez was born to Adriana Velázquez and Evaristo Lvarez in the town of Tlalnepantla de Baz, which is located close to Mexico City. He attributes his earliest exposure to football to his work as a young child making football shirts for neighborhood teams. 

At the age of 14, Alvarez tried out for the Pachuca youth squad, but owing to his diminutive stature, he was not selected.

Despite his parents’ objections, who thought he had the skills to pursue his dream of becoming a professional football player, Alvarez decided to try out for Club América’s young team and ultimately made the team after a three-month tryout.


Lvarez joined Club América’s youth program in 2014 at the age of 16, participating in the under-17 squad.

The next year, Alvarez was promoted to América’s second-division team while still competing for the under-17 team.

AFC Ajax of the Netherlands stated on July 19 that it has reached a deal with Club America to sign Lvarez to a five-year contract, subject to a medical exam, for a reported US$17 million. 

On July 22, after passing his medical exam, he was formally presented and given the shirt with the number 4. On October 27, 2021, it was revealed that Alvarez has extended his contract with Ajax, keeping him with the team through 2025.

He was admitted into the club’s Club Van 100 on April 30, 2022.

In 2018, Edson Alvarez first met his girlfriend. We don’t know how they connected.

We do, however, think it was love at first sight. The two were drawn to each other’s appeal right away, and it wasn’t long until someone made a move.

Sofia, who was a minor at the time, was prohibited from entering Dutch territory under local legislation.

The couple went through a difficult period, but they managed to get along well enough to get through it. Sofia, now an adult, relocated to Amsterdam.
