Notes:
  1. ^ Dinamo Tirana qualified for the UEFA Cup qualifying round by winning the 2002–03 Albanian Cup.
  2. ^ Lushnja and Apolonia finished the season level on points so the Albanian Football Association decided to organise a playoff game to determine which side will be relegated to the Albanian First Division.
