Football Superleague of Kosovo (Albanian: Superliga e Kosovës), also known as the Vala Superleague of Kosovo for sponsorship reasons, is the top division of football in Kosovo[a]. The division was set up in 1945 and its official name has changed a number of times. Vala Superliga is organized by the Football Federation of Kosovo and the division currently has a 12-team format. The clubs play each other three times during the season for a 33-match schedule. At the end of the season, the bottom three teams in the division are relegated to the second tier, Liga e Parë.[1]

The Vala Superliga ran outside of FIFA and UEFA until Kosovo was admitted to both organizations on May 3, 2016.[2]

a.   ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has received formal recognition as an independent state from 111 out of 193 United Nations member states.
