On 16 August 1920, Albanian patriot P. Nika altogether with A. Erebara, P. Jakova, A. Hoxha, A. Koja, P. Berisha, A. Zajmi, H. Fortuzi, B. Pazari, L. Berisha, S. Frasheri, H. Alizoti, A. Gjitomi and V. Fekeci founded the "Agimi Sports Association". The association's favourite sport was football. In October of that same year the newly founded team played the first match against "Juventus" Shkodra. In 1925 the association's governing council was elected. Its members were A. Zajmi, S. Stermasi, B. Toptani, I. Gjinali and A. Koja. The team also played its first international match against the Montenegrin team "Crnogorac" Cetinje the same year. In 1927 on the initiative of Mr S. Stermasi, Mr A. Erebara, Mr A. Zajmi and Mr A. Koja, "Agimi" changed its name to Sportklub Tirana (SK Tirana). During the period 1927–1930 SK Tirana played many friendly matches against other Albanian teams.
Albania 1st Football Tournament 1911
Still an unofficial event of Albanian Football, recently revealed by historians to be the very first championship ever played in Albania. All rounds were played in a one-legged format, similar to those of European competitions. Event started on April, 7th with quarter-finals, semi-finals were played out on April, 11th & 12th, then ended on April, 14th, 1911 with the final match. All matches, including the final have been played in Fier. It was contested by 8 teams, and KF Tirana won the championship.
1930s and World War 2
The onset of the Albanian national football championship was on 6 April 1930. At the end of the first championship the white-and-blue team finished at the leading position, thus becoming the first Albanian champions. Later on they won the championship six times out of seven during the pre-World War 2 period, convincingly dominating the Albanian football scene. Tirana were the first Albanian football team to introduce the permanent role of a regular coach and also the first to secure the services of a foreign coach, the Hungarian Samo Singer, in 1934.
From 1939 to 1942, KF Tirana won two more national championships (out of 3 organized by the AFA during that period, the third won by KS Vllaznia), however, despites being official, these trophies are still not added to Tirana's palmares by AFA. Although these championships were played right after King's Cup was concluded (an event officially recognized from AFA) and the 1942 championship had a massive nationwide participation (the first and the only time in Albanian football history so far in which Kosovo teams compete alongside Albanian teams as a Nationwide League), it's meaningless why AFA are still hesitating to add these events as well, considering the fact that AFA are the official organizers!
The AFA finally made a decision in February 2013 that, according to them, although AFA admits the WWII Championships have indeed been played correctly and rightfully, are not legitimate and won't be recognized since they weren't organized by the AFA, but by the Fascist regime.
After the war, KF Tirana made a good start reaching the second spot in 1945, after losing to Vllaznia Shkodër in the final. But soon the club would become a victim of the reigning communist regime in Albania. At the beginning of March 1946, at the "Nacional" movie theater in Tirana, as a result of instructions coming from the communist politburo, KF Tirana was forced to change its name to "17 Nentori". The club was thus denied its own name. The following decade would unroll in the same suffocating atmosphere, becoming even heavier after the foundation of two system-privileged teams that would follow the experiences of their sisters in the former USSR, former Yugoslavia, and the other eastern European countries: Partizani, the Defense Ministry team and Dinamo, the Internal Affairs Ministry team. Dozens of Tirana’s talented players were "convinced", against their will, to play for either Partizani or Dinamo. As a result "17 Nentori" struggled to stay at the top during the years 1947–1957, however the team managed to gain some of the lost groung during the second part of the 50's after replacing in part some of the first choice players of its line up.
From 1958 to 1964 Tirana kept on producing some good football and finishing the championship almost always at the third spot. These years were a prelude to what was about to happen later: Tirana reexperienced its pre-war glory spell under the services of the unforgettable coach Lym (Myslym) Alla. At the end of the 28th national championship Tirana became champions of Albania more than twenty years after their last title.
Championship of 1966-67
The team repeated the success the year after, but this was an obvious challenge to Partizani's generals and Dinamo's secret service bosses. After having practically won the 1966–1967 title three matches in advance, Tirana was banned from the competition and the title was assigned to Dinamo.
After this, Tirana won the championship two years in a row in style, losing only two matches in 1968 and only one during the 1969–1970 season.
1970s and 1980s
During the seventies Tirana struggled hard to stay at the top, the best result being the second place and the worst the thirteenth. Yet the club won the national cup twice. The generation of older players came to the end pf their careers and this could only mark the end of a highly successful era. However the unsuccessful spell would not last long this time. Tirana won the championship at the end of the 1981–1982 season, and they went on to win the title three other times during the eighties, in 1984–1985, 1987–1988, and 1988–1989 and the Albanian Cup in 1983, 1984, and 1986. The club was also successful in the European club competitions and many of the team players made up the core of the best Albania the country had ever had.
1990s and 2000s
During the first half of the nineties KF Tirana (which in August 1991 regained its old name), likewise the whole Albanian society, went through a period of profound changes. Almost all the best Albanian players left the country and went abroad looking for a richer team who could hire them. But it seems that the club simply could not stand being too long from the leading spots. Thus at the end of the 1994–1995 season, K. F. Tirana once again won the championship five matches in advance with 12 points ahead of the second placed team. During the recent years Tirana has dominated the Albanian football by winning 10 out of the last 15 Albania's championships.
KF Tirana in Europe
In addition to being the best team in all domestic competitions, K.F. Tirana (Men) have also given the best performances in Europe among Albanian teams. Although Tirana have passed 11 times one European round, they have never gone further than that. In their European path, Tirana have played against "big guns" such as: AFC Ajax, FC Bayern Munich, A.C. Milan, etc. Drawn against reputable teams such as FC Dinamo București, Ferencvárosi TC, PFC CSKA Sofia, Stabæk IF, FC Utrecht, NK Dinamo Zagreb, IFK Göteborg, Malmö FF, Standard Liège, etc. In several occasions, respectable European names such as: FC Dinamo București, FC Dinamo Tbilisi, ND Gorica, NK Varteks, etc. have been eliminated from white and blues.
The best squad to compete in Europe was that of season 2004/05. After having easily passed FC Gomel of Belarus in the first round, Tirana played against Ferencvárosi TC in the second round. Having lost the first leg at home 2–3, KF Tirana produced fantastic football in Budapest and was leading 1–0, after which the team missed a penalty and the ball hit woodwork twice, but they just could not score the qualifying goal and therefore were eliminated with a 3–3 on aggregate.
KF Tirana vs A.C. Milan. On 14 October 2008, KF Tirana and A.C. Milan took part, for the first time ever, in the "Taci Oil Albania Reads" project in Tirana. This new initiative had the goal to raise funds for the construction of new and modern libraries across Albania, a project launched by UNICEF. The proceeds of this event, sponsored by Taçi Oil helped to create 100 new libraries in Albanian schools, whilst also driving forward the improvement in learning, teaching and reading standards in schools. KF Tirana won the match 2–1.
Recent seasons and the present
Even though KF Tirana has dominated through the last 20 years, since 2006 club have displayed instability in management, which has also reflected in the results. Several factors have affected negatively the presentation, not only in the domestic competitions, but also the international appearances.
- KF Tirana's last solid dominating season was the one 2006-07, when the title was easily achieved. However, since failure in Champions League qualifications on that year, KF Tirana started an unstable performance.
- The season 2007-08 found them in 6th spot, an unusual position for this team for last 18 years.
- Although Tirana won the title in 2008-09, it was a glow-less season.
- Other severe problems started again in 2009-10 and season ended a total failure, gaining no trophies.
- White and blues yet again didn't make a good start of the 2010-2011 Domestic League, due to some controversies between the president and club chief, as well as unexplainable delays in paying players salaries, which had a negative impact in the team. The continuous unpleasant results caused Tirana presidency changing coaches thrice in one season, starting with Sulejman Starova, then Nevil Dede and finally Croatian Mišo Krstičević. Contrary to the League, KF Tirana did well in the Cup, winning the final against Dinamo Tirana by penalty shoot-outs (regular and extra time finished in a 1–1 draw) earning also the participation in Europa League for second time in a row.
Late preparations, late new players arrivals, even late new coach appointment gave the negative effects either in team consolidation, or poor performance in Europa League. Starting from 2-nd qualifying round, having drawn goalless first match home, Tirana suffered a 1–3 away loss against Slovakian opponent FC Spartak Trnava and were therefore knocked out early from the competition.
- The 2011-2012 season started very well for now a consolidated Tirana. They added another trophy in their wealthy palmares, the 9th Supercup, by winning the final match against defending champions KF Skënderbeu Korçë in Korçë, with a single goal of Bekim Bala.
12 October 2011 was another key event for club's future. The Municipality Council voted with unanimous consent the transformation of KF Tirana status to a shareholders association. Since then, the club is originally named as KF Tirana Sh.A (Shoqëri Aksionere). Municipality of Tirana will initially hold 100% of shares, however any future private sponsors or donors approaches to share stock would always be welcome.
White and blues ended the League in the 3rd place, 5 points below crowned champions KF Skënderbeu Korçë, even though outstanding Spanish coach Julián Rubio had to re-create the squad twice, due to lack of players who left the club by late summer. Additionally, Tirana players and staff had to outface a temporary financial kink, caused from the latter club transformation to sh.a. which had negative influence in the limited number of quality players which approached from the market. At majority of the season coach Rubio had severe difficulties and wasn't able to even to create a proper official squad for a match! Nonetheless, despite all difficulties faced, Tirana finally ended the season in the best possible way earning 2 trophies out of 3, by also winning their 15th Cup trophy. Tirana won the final against their fierce rivals of last 2 seasons KF Skënderbeu Korçë, with Bekim Bala becoming again the key scorer, netting the winning goal at 107' at extra-time, since regular time ended goalless draw.
- The club could, however, get organized better for 2012-13 season, starting from Europa League participation. Even though having a healthy budget, club officials were too late to bring quality players on time, adding here the fact that they let go of main attacker, Bekim Balaj for a funny transfer sum to AC Sparta Prague despite Balaj still had 6 month of contract left! Tirana managed to pass only one round in Europa League, eliminating CS Grevenmacher of Luxembourg, before being knocked out from Norwegians of Aalesunds FK in the 2nd round. Tirana won again the Supercup (their jubilee 10th trophy), by beating on their 3rd final clash KF Skënderbeu Korçë. Despite due to extend his link with Tirana for the following two seasons and continuing the project, the successful Spanish coach, Rubio, did not sign that contract officially, due to some clauses on which himself and the club did not agree and eventually him and the club departed ways after over 13 months cooperation. Artur Lekbello was appointed Tirana new coach, but despite his credits as a player in the past, he did not prove that successful as a coach and therefore presented his resignation to club administrator after only 42 days, following unpleasant results in Tirana's bench. Alban Tafaj once again took the vacant place as a temporary coach. On 19 February, Tafaj withdrew to his original technical director post and Nevil Dede became Tirana coach for the 2nd time in his career. With Dede in bench, Tirana ended the 2012-13 season in the 5th place, thus a total failure, considering neither trophy was won (not mentioning here the Supercup before season started) nor club earned the right to participate in Europe. Dede however extended his contract with the club for another 2 years, in order to take forward his project of activating mostly young players from youth academy and abroad.
- In the verge of the new season, Tirana transported from last year the financial problems and ungiven salaries. This situation went to the extreme and club was nearly starting Superliga with only 10 young players. But days before market was due to close three businessmen approached for Tirana; Ndriçim Babasi (appointed president of KF Tirana), ex-donor Refik Halili and Lulzim Morina and club brought 9 players in the very last moment of market closure. New Tirana started to take shape, however last moment approaches had their negative effect in results, as continuous losses caused Tirana president suspend coach Dede and temporary replaced him with Alpin Gallo, previously a Tirana player.
The home ground of KF Tirana is Selman Stërmasi Stadium, which is shared with city rivals Dinamo Tirana and Partizani Tirana. However, most derby and significant matches are played at the national team's Qemal Stafa Stadium; the stadium is also used if the Selman Stërmasi Stadium is unavailable as it is used by three different teams. The club has expressed its desire to rebuild the current Selman Stërmasi Stadium into a modern complex with around 15,000 to 20,000 season. They want it to be Albania's first modern post-Communism stadium without an athletic track around the field, which they hope will provide more atmosphere and attract more fans. However, it has not yet been decided when this will be built but it is rumoured to be the club's 100th anniversary present in 2020.
Selman Stërmasi Stadium
KF Tirana plays most of its official and friendly games at the 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 Football Association of Albania 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 (of which 6000 seated) and has recently ended a long phase of construction, involving development of the main pitch, central seated area, facilities around the ground and general lineaments. There are still improvements expected to be made soon,[when?] as side seated areas, an electronic clock and a KF Tirana shopping centre just under central seated. The internal facilities include a press conference room, journalists' corner and modern showers. 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.
The supporters of KF Tirana are organised in Tirona Fanatics. This fanclub is started in 8 January 2006 and is popular to football fans out of KF Tirana. The name Tirona Fanatics is chosen because it's written in the dialect of Tirana.
KF Tirana are regarded as the Albania's top football team having won:
27 times (domestic record) – 1911* (not yet recognized by FSHF), 1930, 1931, 1932, 1934, 1936, 1937, 1939* (not yet recognized by FSHF), 1942* (not yet recognized by FSHF), 1964–1965, 1965–1966, 1968, 1969–1970, 1981–1982, 1984–1985, 1987–1988, 1988–1989, 1994–1995, 1995–1996, 1996–1997, 1998–1999, 1999–2000, 2002–2003, 2003–2004, 2004–2005, 2006–2007, 2008–2009
