In the middle of the month, Tirana announced that its new home Selman Stërmasi Stadium will be ready at the end of the month to host the league match against Skënderbeu Korçë.[41] In the inaugural match, Tirana disappointed the fans by losing 2–1, with the goals scored by two former players of Tirana, Salihi and Lilaj, which did not celebrate as a sign of respect.

In December, Tirana recorded three goalless draw, respectively against Teuta Durrës, Partizani Tirana and Vllaznia Shkodër. On 23 December, in the last match of the year, Tirana recorded a 1–0 at Kukësi thanks to the header of Gentian Muça, taking the first ever win at Zeqir Ymeri Stadium.[43] Tirana ended the second phase of the league in fourth place with 29 points.

In January of the following year, during the winter transfer window, Tirana secured the services of the Brazilian duo Hugo Almeida and Alex Willian respectively form Portuguesa and Icasa.[46] They signed both a six-month contract with an option to extend it for a year, and were presented on 13 January.[47] On the same day, the 26-years old defender Endrit Idrizaj returned to the club after spending the last year in loan at Apolonia Fier.[48]

The ethnic Albanian prodigy Florian Kadriu was sent on loan at fellow Albanian Superliga side Teuta Durrës until the end of the season in order to gain more experience.[49] Stivi Frashëri terminated his contract with Tirana by mutual consensus.[50] Tirana kicked off 2016 by beating away Flamurtari Vlorë in the first leg of quarter-final of Albanian Cup, thanks to an Argjend Malaj winner.[51] Back in Albanian Superliga, on 30 January, Tirana won comfortably 3–1 away against Tërbuni Pukë to go up in the 3rd place, overtaking Teuta Durrës. The goals were scored by Bakaj, Muzaka and Muça.[52]

February[edit]

On 1 February, in the last day of winter transfer window, Tirana signed Enriko Papa from Bylis Ballsh on a free transfer.[53] He signed a one-year contract with the option of a further one.[54] On 6 February, Tirana announced via its official website that they have terminated the contract with Brazilian forward Hugo after he requeried to leave the club due to familiar reasons.[55] However, five hours later, Hugo returned to the team, and also brought his family in Albania, saying that he never asked the club to leave and the situation that was created was a misunderstanding created by his manager, leading Hugo to terminate they cooperation.[56]

A day later, Tirana recorded an emphatic 3–0 away win over Laçi, thanks to the goals of Bakaj, Muzaka and Hugo.[57] That was the first win at Laçi Stadium since 5 May 2012 where Tirana won thanks to a winner of Bekim Balaj.[58] However, during the match Bakaj and Karan were booked meaning that they would miss the following league match against Bylis Ballsh at home.[59] However, during the match Tirana was able to beat Bylis Ballsh 2–0 thanks to the goals of Muzaka and the youngster Majkel Peci, who made his Albanian Superliga debut. Tirana also registered the first victory at the newly renovated Selman Stërmasi Stadium.[60] In the returning leg of Albanian Cup's quarter-final at Selman Stërmasi Stadium, Tirana was surprisingly knocked out by Flamurtari Vlorë who won 2–1 to qualify in the next round with the aggregate 2–2 (away rule goals), in the match which saw the dismissal of Erion Hoxhallari and Olsi Teqja, leaving Tirana with nine players for the last ten minutes of the match.[61] On 19 February, the vice-captain Gentian Muça successfully underwent surgery in his knee that would rule him out for two months.[62]

Three days later, in the next league match against the league leaders Skënderbeu Korçë, Tirana lost 0–1 in a match which was infamously marred by the "one-sided" decisions of the referee Andi Koçi, who did not give a clear penalty to Tirana's Gilman Lika while awarded an incorrect penalty to Skënderbeu's Hamdi Salihi, who scored the lone goal.[63][64] Skënderbeu's coach Mirel Josa and also the team's vice captain Orges Shehi and Bakary Nimaga admitted that the penalty of Tirana was correct.[65][66][67] A day later, the club's sporting director Devi Muka came out on a press conference to condemn the arbitration of Andi Koçi, while Tirana's coach Ilir Daja accused the referee for not leaving Tirana to fight for the title.[68] One the same day, Tirana filed an official document that requested the lifetime ban of referee Andi Koçi, adding also that Enea Jorgji should not judge any of Tirana matches.[69] On 26 February, Hugo Almeida left the team after terminating his contract with the club by mutual consensus.[70] In the last match of the month, Tirana earned a goalless draw at home against Teuta Durrës, they rivals for the European spot.[71]

March[edit]

In the match of the March, Tirana fell 2–0 to Patizani Tirana at Qemal Stafa Stadium, losing out the 3rd spot in the process.[72] The striker Elis Bakaj who made his return from injury in the 50th minute of the match was red-carded five minutes later, leaving the team with ten players, which lead the Disciplinary Committee of AFA to suspended for five matches for his behaviour.[73] In the next match four days later, Tirana didn't go more than a goalless draw against Flamurtari Vlorë at home, felling down to 5th place.[74]

Four days later, Tirana confirmed the bad form recently by losing the Albanian derby 3–1 to Vllaznia Shkodër at Reshit Rusi Stadium.[75] The team took the lead in the 5th minute though an own goal from Stefan Cicmil, but Vllaznia Shkodër bounced back and scored three times, two in the first half.[75]

Tirana tried to react and to turn page in the next match versus Kukësi, but didn't go more than a 1–1 draw, despite leading in the first half with a goal from Gjergji Muzaka.[76] Tirana finished the month without winning a single match; on 22 March, the club fined the defender Dritan Smajli for breaking the rules one day before the match against Kukësi, and was not included in the team for the match.[77] Four days later, Tirana even lost the friendly versus the Albanian First Division side Kamza.[78] In the last day of the month, Tirana liquidated €198.000 debts to its former players and employers, avoiding potential penalties that could be applied by FIFA and UEFA.[79]

April[edit]

Tirana commenced the month by taking a 3–0 home victory over Tërbuni Pukë thanks to an Elis Bakaj hat-trick, returning Tirana in the winning ways after six consecutive league matches without a win.[80] That was the second win at Selman Stëmasi Stadium and Elis Bakaj become the first player to score a hat-trick for Tirana since Bekim Balaj on 23 October 2011. On 5 April, Tirana terminated its cooperating with Alex Willian who didn't play a single minute in the senor team in competitive matches, being reduced to play only with the reserve side.[81] Tirana then defeated Laçi at home thanks again to Elis Bakaj winner to keep the European chances alive.[82]

After that, Tirana made another false step as they didn't go more than a goalless against the penultimate side of Bylis Ballsh.[83] In the next match, Tirana suffered another defeat at the hands of Skënderbeu Korçë, losing 1–0 at Selman Stërmasi Stadium thanks to the Hamdi Salihi's later winner.[84] That was Tirana's fourth league loss against Skënderbeu Korçë in as many matches played. In the last league match for this month, Teuta Durrës held Tirana to a 0–0 draw at Niko Dovana Stadium.[85]

May[edit]

Tirana begun May with a 2–2 home draw against Partizani Tirana, with the goals scored by Gentian Muça and Elis Bakaj. The team was on lead until 94th minute, but Partizani levelled the scored thanks to a Realdo Fili strike.[86] For singing anti-Partizani crust with the fans, Gentian Muça was accused of public incitement of hatred, and was banned for one year from all competitions by the Disciplinary Committee of AFA, effective immediately.[87] Also Tirana's stadium was banned for eight matches for its fans behaviour, also the Sporting Director Devi Muka was banned for ten matches after assaulting a Partizani Tirana member staff.[88]

On 8 May, in the next league match, Tirana lost 2–1 away to Flamurtari Vlorë,[89] leaving Tirana mathematically out of European competitions for the fourth consecutive season.[90] In the last match at home, Tirana beat Vllaznia Shkodër thanks to the lone goal of Elis Bakaj, his 13th in the league.[91] On final day of the season, Tirana was defeated 2–1 away to Kukësi to finish the season in the 5th position, remaining out of European competitions for the fourth consecutive year.[92] Tirana collected 53 points, 18 less the last season.[93]
