Team changes from last season[edit]

Lushnja and Elbasani were directly relegated to the First Division after finishing 11th and 12th in the previous year's standings. They were replaced by First Division champions Laçi and runners-up Skënderbeu Korçë.

9th placed Bylis Ballsh and 10th placed Partizani Tirana had to compete in single-match relegation play-offs. Both teams were relegated in the process by losing against the third and fourth-placed teams from First Division, Kastrioti Krujë and Gramozi Ersekë.
