Laçi Stadium (Albanian: Stadiumi Laçi) is a multi-use stadium in Laçi, Albania. It is used mostly for football matches and hosts the home games of KF Laçi of the Albanian Superliga. The stadium currently has an official seated capacity of 2,300, but attendances have reached 4,000 in recent years

Reconstruction[edit]

Following an impressive 2009–10, KF Laçi decided to reconstruct the stadium in order to meet the UEFA licensing criteria to host their home Europa League at their own stadium. The three stands surrounding the pitch were renovated and around 2,300 blue plastic seats were installed to turn the stadium into an all seater. The renovation of the stadium was not completed in time for KF Laci's European debut, and they had to play against Dnepr Mogilev of Belarus at the Niko Dovana Stadium in Durrës. The newly renovated stadium was inaugurated in a home league game against Shkumbini Peqin on 30 August 2010 in front of 1,500 spectators, where KF Laçi won 2–0.[1][2]

During the summer of 2015 the stadium's turf was replaced for the first time since 2006, and minor cosmetic renovation was carried out throughout the rest of the stadium.[3]
