WHAT IS THE KATEGORIA SUPERIORE?
The Kategoria Superiore is a professional league for men’s association football clubs in Albania. This is the country’s primary football competition in the Albanian football league system, which is arranged above the Kategoria e Parë( the second level of professional football in Albania).
The competition was established in 1930 as the Albanian National Championship during the dominance of King Zog, shortly after the creation of the Albanian Football Association. There have been 45 clubs competing in recognized competitions but only nine teams have won the title. The current winners of the league are Teuta.
WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THE ALBANIA CHAMPIONSHIP?
Since the 2014-15 Kategoria Superiore, the championship consists of 10 clubs. Each team faces each other four times in a conventional round-robin tournament (twice at home and twice away) for a total of 36 games.
A season often runs from August to May. At the end of the season, the two last-ranked teams are relegated to the Kategoria e Parë. Instead, the two highest-ranked teams of the second tier are promoted in their place. The 8th ranked team joins the play-off round to play against the Kategoria e Parë play-off winner.
The winner of the Kategoria Superiore will have a ticket to the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League. The second and the third-ranked teams earn a place in the first qualifying round of the next season’s UEFA Europa Conference League.
The results of teams are respectively ranked by total points, head-to-head record, goal difference, and then goals scored.
