Team changes from last season[edit]

KS Lushnja and KS Elbasani were directly relegated to the First Division after finishing 11th and 12th in the previous year's standings. They were replaced by First Division champions KF Laçi and runners-up Skënderbeu Korçë.

9th placed Bylis Ballsh and 10th placed Partizani Tirana had to compete in single-match relegation play-offs. Both teams were relegated in the process by losing against the third and fourth-placed teams from First Division, Kastrioti Krujë and Gramozi Ersekë.
