The 1930 Albanian Championship was the first edition of the Albanian Superliga, which ran from 6 April until 6 July. It was the first ever official football competition in Albania run by the newly formed Albanian Football Association, as the 1911 Albanian Championship was not run by the AFA and is not yet recognised. The six original members were Urani Elbasan, Teuta Durrës, Skënderbeu Korçë, Bashkimi Shkodran, Sportklub Tiranë and Sportklub Vlorë who agreed to play a ten game format whereby each team would host each of their five rivals once with two points awarded for a win and one point awarded for a drawn game. The two teams with the most points at the end of the regular season of the competition would then enter a championship playoff where they would play each other twice and the champions would be crowned based on the aggregate score of the home and away ties, however this playoff was not actually played due to forfeit.

Sportklub Tiranë were declared the inaugural champions of Albania following two technical victories over Skënderbeu Korçë in the championship playoffs, taking their seasonal total to seven wins, four draws and one loss.

Overview[edit]

The competition was the first official national football competition to be held in Albania and it featured six sides from across Albania, which were Urani Elbasan, Teuta Durrës, Skënderbeu Korçë, Bashkimi Shkodran, Sportklub Tiranë and Sportklub Vlorë. Each team played each other twice during two phases, and the top two ranked teams entered the championship playoff which would have been a two game playoff decided on the aggregate score for the championship title. Each win during the regular season was worth two points, with a draw worth one point and a loss worth none. The first phase was held between 6 April and 4 May, and the second phase was held between 11 May and 22 June. The playoff finals were planned on 22 June and 6 July, but they did not take place due to Skënderbeu Korçë's forfeit of both games.

The playoff finals were not played following Skënderbeu Korçë's forfeit, which was a sign of protest against the bias of the competition and the Albanian Football Association towards the Sportklub Tiranë. Both games were awarded 2-0 to Sportklub Tiranë thus crowning them the first champions of Albania.
