Fernando Lopez is a professional football player from Mexico who plays as a defender. Lopez began his professional career in 2003 when he turned out for Club Irapuato in the Apertura tournament. He made 16 appearances out of 19 games before moving to Queretaro FC at the end of 2006. Lopez, who had failed to make himself a regular despite a good number of appearances in his first season at Irapuato, went on to make the first team at Queretaro.
He played 31 games before being sold to Atlante FC. Although Lopez made just 15 appearances for the team, he scored his first goal at the top level of Mexican football and played a small role in helping the team win the 2007 Apertura title. At the end of the season, with a championship medal in hand, Lopez left for Club Nexaca where he was a regular in the first team. Lopez played a major role in the team and this was noticed by Club America, where he was sent on loan with an option to complete the sale at the end of 2009.
