STADIUM & TRAINING COMPLEX

  • Selman Stërmasi Stadium

KF Tirana plays most of its official and friendly games at Selman Stërmasi Stadium, in Tirana. The Selman Stërmasi Stadium was built in 1956 and was previously named the ‘Dinamo’ Stadium till 1991 when it was permanently given its new name. The Albanian Football Association and the club decided to name the stadium post mortem after the eminent KF Tirana player, coach and president, Selman Stërmasi.

The stadium has a capacity of 12,500 (6000 seated). In December 2014, another phase of reconstruction was started, involving a new pitch, central main covered stand, central fans stand including two extra rows extension, broken or missing seats replacements/repairs, interior facilities, general lineaments and a shopping centre just under central seated. The internal facilities include general repairs, a press conference room, journalists’ corner and modern showers. The side fans stands will temporary be shut and covered by advertising boards. It is still unclear when will stadium lighting and scoreboard be fitted.

The main parking area is located at the front of the stadium, which leads to the entrance. The whole external part of the stadium is surrounded by a 2.7 M (9 ft) rail fence.


 

  • Skënder Halili Complex

The club’s training ground is called the Skënder Halili Complex and it is located off of Rruga e Kavajës, near the Birra Tirana factory. The training complex was posthumously named after Skënder Halili, who was one of the club’s most notable associates, both during his playing career and after. The complex features a full sized natural grass football pitch, as well as a smaller astro turf fan along with dressing rooms used by senior team as well as some of the youth teams. In December 2014 work began on both the Skënder Halili Complex and the Selman Stërmasi Stadium in order to fully renovate these grounds to be used by the club, and at the training ground the training facilities were all improved which included the dressing rooms and even the single stand that holds a small number of spectators for those wishing to attend training sessions and even occasional friendlies that are played at the ground
