KF Luzi 2008 is an Albanian football (soccer) club based in Luz i Vogël, a commune located in Kavajë District. The club was founded in 2008 and is currently competing in Albania's Second Division Group A, which is the 3rd tier of Albanian football. During the club's first ever season they managed a respectable 4th place finish.

History[edit]

KF Luzi played its first ever competitive game against KF Erzeni in the Second Division Group A on September 21, 2008. The match itself was not a great moment in the club's history as they lost 2-0 away from home. The next two games in the season were also away from home which meant that Luzi would not earn a single point in the first four games of the season. The team had to wait until their first home game for their first ever point and goal. This came on November 2, 2008 against KF Adriatiku Mamurrasi. The match ended 1-0 in favor of Luzi which was enough to seal the win.

It was announced on October 8, 2009 that legendary national team player Altin Rraklli would be joining Luzi as the technical director at the club.[1]

By far the biggest game in the club's history was the Albanian Cup first round encounter with the champions of Albania KF Tirana on 21 October 2009. The match was played at a sold out and very festive Stadiumi Luz i Vogël 2008. Tirana took the lead in the 14th minute through national team midfielder Jetmir Sefa, but Luzi quickly fought back to equalise just 2 minutes later with Bejko. Luzi then went on to dominate and grab another two goals with Fagu in the 42nd and then Gega in the 62nd minute.[2]

Stadium[edit]

The club currently play at the purpose built Stadiumi Luz i Vogël 2008 in Luz i Vogël. The stadium was built in 2008 by the Luz i Vogël council and was paid for by them. The stadium currently holds 600 supporters and is an all seater. The playing surface is all natural grass. However, the stadium does not have a disabled area or even a professional camera system in place. KS Besa Kavajë have also used the stadium for friendly and cup games, the first was an Albanian Cup encounter against KS Kastrioti Krujë on 17 December 2008.[3]

Investment[edit]

In November 2008, the president of the club Lavdim Lusha and his two businessmen brothers from the small town of Luz i Vogël made clear their ambitions of investing up to 400,000 euros into the club's stadium. The three brother Lavdim, Sokoli and Albert Lusha made the news public at an FSHF event in the town which was attended by both the presidents of KS Teuta Durrës and KS Besa Kavajë.[4]
