Albania National Football Team Home Stadium

Albania’s main stadium for most of history was the Qemal Stafa Stadium located in Tirana. The work began in April 1939 during the Italian regime. Construction lasted three years but stopped briefly in August 1943 after the fall of the Fascist regime.

The stadium was in the shape of an Olympic stadium, envisioned by Gherardo Bosio, a young fascist architect from Florence, Italy. The initial capacity of the stadium was 15,000, this because Tirana at that time had only 60,000 inhabitants. It is named after Qemal Stafa, an Albanian hero in World War II.
