Klubi Sportiv Shkumbini is an Albanian football club based in the city of Peqin. The club's home ground is the Shkumbini Stadium and they currently compete in the Albanian First Division.[2]

History[edit]

Football was first introduced to the city of Peqin in the early 1920s after an army officer from Shkodër brought along a ball with him. An amateur club was formed in 1924 by Adem Bedali and other local men who had begun playing football. In the club's infancy they played friendly games with teams from other cities in Albania, before the creation of the Albanian Football Association in 1930 who organised the first official football competitions in the country. Shkumbini's first trophy came in 1936 when they defeated Apolonia Fier to win the Albanian Second Division. They remained in the lower divisions until 1994, when they finished 2nd in the Albanian First Division and achieved promotion to the Albanian Superliga for the first time in the club's history.[3] In their debut season in the top flight they finished in a respectable 7th place out of 16 teams, with a record of 11 wins, 8 draws and 11 losses.[4] The club finished in 4th place in the 1997–98 season in the Albanian Superliga, and striker Dorian Bubeqi was the league's top goalscorer with 26 goals.[5]
