After the investment made in the Skender Halili Complex that was completed in record time, and the investment that is changing the face of the the Selman Stërmasi Stadium, KF Tirana will now realise another investment that was also promised some time ago. Sporting director Devi Muka explains how the new projects will add two new football pitches to the club that will serve both the white & blue academy and the first team. "We have improved conditions at the Skender Halili Complex investing and turning the complex into a modern home for all teams of KF Tirana. We have started the reconstruction of the Selman Stërmasi Stadium, work which is now nearing completion. All that I have mentioned was made a reality in record time through the investment of our ambitious president Refik Halili. Now is the time to make another major investment: to add two new football pitches for the club to use. Soon the Selman Stërmasi Stadium and the new football pitches will be completed, as in the next few days work will start on the two new major investments. Thanks to the tireless work of engineers Spartak Hasamataj and Ksenofon Haskocelaj everything is moving at the right pace and work will be completed to the highest standard. Investment in the club's infrastructure are needed for the future, and KF Tirana is working with the right vision to invest in tomorrow. The stadium, sports complex, two new football pitches and other investments will soon make life at KF Tirana easier, and we are fulfilling the needs for a Eruopean club", explained Muka.
The sporting director also explained what is expected to happen with players who will move closer to KF Tirana. "In addition to investments being made in infrastructure, the club is also working to build the right team for the new season. The same ambition the President has for the club's infrastructure also applies for the team as well. Within a week, four quality reinforcements will be made official as they will join the white & blues. The team will have the proper attire. I urge all fans to wait only a few days", explained Devi Muka.

KF Tirana midfielder Erando Karabeci is in Athens, completing his therapy and recovery from an injury he initially sustained midway through last season in December, but he opted to spend the second half of last season on painkiller injections to play on through the injury. The player had an injury in his lower abdominal area, and he is 10 days into a 20 therapy programme under the guidance of a specialist in Athens, where he decided to go to fully recover from the long standing injury ahead of the 2015-16 campaign. It is expected that Karabeci will continue his rehabilitation in Tiranë once he returns after his 20 day therapy programme, and he is also expected to be fully fit and in optimal physical condition for the club's preseason training.
