Description: Arena Kombëtare

After several failed attempts to build a new national stadium in Tirana, after long 6 years of efforts, finally in May 2016 the very last game at outdated Stadiumi Qemal Stafa took place. The following month demolition began and by September groundbreaking of its successor was possible. The construction time frame foresees two years for completion.

Just like the historical one, new national stadium was designed by architectural team from Italian city of Florence, this time led by Marco Casamonti. A reminder of the predecessor, old main entrance, will be kept and incorporated into the main stand, hidden behind glass wall.

There’s no room for running track any more as capacity will grow to over 22,000 seats, all covered. Add to that a 100-meter tower, 80-room hotel and 256 underground parking spaces, and you get the idea why no space for athletics was made in this versatile football stadium. All of the facilities will be hidden behind unique set of blinders in national colours of Albania.
