Klubi Sportiv Sopoti Librazhd is an Albanian sports club based in Librazhd. Its football team is currently competing in Albania's Second Division, the 3rd tier of Albanian football.

History[edit]

They were founded in 1948 under the name KS Albania Tabak Librazhd, and they play their home games at the Sopoti Stadium. The club is named after the nearby Sopot Mountain. They spent the 1992/93, 1993/94, 1995/96 and 1996/97 seasons in the Kategoria Superiore. Before the 1996/97 season the changed their name back to Albania Tabak Librazhd,[1] only to change it to Sopoti Librazhd once more the next year.

Stadium[edit]

The club's home ground is the multi-use Sopoti Stadium which is situated in the centre of the town next to the municipality building. The stadium which has a capacity of 3,000 spectators was built in 1964 and has been the club's home ever since. The stadium is not currently fit for use but the Albanian Football Association along with the Librazhd Municipality have drawn up initial plans to reconstruct the stadium in its entirety, but such plans have yet to be materialised due to a lack of funding.[2][3]

As of the 2014–15 season the stadium does not meet the current Albanian Football Association's standard requirements, due to the outdated and run down nature of the building as well as the field.[4] .In 2017-18 season Kf Sopoti will play in home stadium with new coach the 25 years old ex player of Sopoti Mr. Klajdi Kënga and the players will be from age groups .
