Professional career

Mate spent most of his career with New York Hungaria of the German American Soccer League. In 1962, Mate won both the league and National Challenge Cup with Hungaria. Mate scored two of Hungaria's three goals in the win over the San Francisco Scots. In 1963 he scored all five goals in Hungaria's first round aggregate defeat of Mexico's Deportivo Oro in the CONCACAF Champions' Cup. In 1964-65, he was in and out of the team with Hamburger SV in Germany where most sources referred to him as “Andreas” Mate (the Hungarian version would be Andras). In 1967, Mate played a single season with the New York Generals of the National Professional Soccer League. When the New York Cosmos entered the North American Soccer League in 1971, it drew much of its initial roster from the GASL. As a result, Mate played the Cosmos first season. In 1975, he played for the New Jersey Americans of the American Soccer League.

National team

Mate earned one cap with the U.S. national team in a 10-0 loss to England on May 27, 1964.
