Promotion/relegation playoffs and Qyteti Stalin riots[edit]

Naftëtari Qyteti Stalin qualified for a promotion/relegation playoff after finishing runners-up to second tier champions Traktori Lushnja.[1] After losing the first match 1-0 away to Albanian giants and Ministry of Interior club Dinamo Tirana, the second match in Qyteti Stalin on 5 June 1988 ended in riots and burning of the Dinamo team bus partly due to the fact that the game was led by a referee and assistants from Tirana. Dinamo also won the second leg 1-0- and the subsequent riots led to the suspension of Naftëtari from playing football for a year and demotion to the third tier. Their coach Pandi Angjeli and players Meta and Makashi were suspended for life and club manager Fatmir Ismaili was dismissed.[2]
