The club was officially founded on 3 March 1950 by the Interior Ministry of Albania during the communist regime under dictator Enver Hoxha. In 1995 the team were renamed KS Olimpik Tirana; in 1997 they returned to their original name. In the 2006–07 first qualifying round for the UEFA Cup the club were eliminated by PFC CSKA Sofia of Bulgaria (1–5 aggregate). Zoran Kastel was the goalscorer. After finishing third in the table in 2005–06 season, KS Dinamo Tirana named Faruk Sejdini as their new coach. One of Albania's best teachers of footballing fundamentals, he had a spell at the club last term before being dismissed by president Besnik Sulaj. Having returned following a spell at KS Shkumbini, Sejdini said: "It's nice to be back." On October 23, 2006, Faruk Sejdini was fired. At the start of the 2007–08 season, Agim Canaj took over as head coach. He has been replaced by Ilir Daja who led Dinamo towards the championship title, after a dramatic win against Partizani 2–1 in the final match, playing for 36 minutes with 9 players. In the summer of 2008 Ilir Daja moved into a position as director in order to make place for Marcelo Javier Zuleta from Argentina. The Argentinian coach also brought with him four Argentinian players; goalkeeper Daniel Bertoya, defender Alejandro Palladino, midfielder Agustín González, and striker Cristian Campozano. Zuleta only lasted for the first Champions League qualification match against Bosnians FK Modriča before he was replaced as coach by Artan Mergjyshi, for only one match. Together with Zuleta, the four Argentinian players also left the club. After Mergjyshi left, Zlatko Dalić, the actual coach of Croatia U-21, was appointed as new coach for Dinamo. He signed a two-year contract with the club. That deal was broken when Dinamo lost its second game in the re-beginning of the 2008–09 season against Partizani. Shkëlqim Muça was then appointed manager of the club five days after of Zlatko Dalić's leave with Shkelqim Muca, in the 2009–10 season Dinamo won the championship again, registering its 18th success.
