Qemal Stafa Stadium – Tirana, Albania

Qemal Stafa StadiumToday, it’s a random track pick from Europe.  Qemal Stafa Stadium is the national stadium of Albania, and there are track and field facilities located here.  This is an old stadium that took seven years to build.  Construction started in 1939, but wasn’t completed until 1946.  It has been renovated and reconfigured several times since.  In 2010, officials approved a plan tear this stadium down in 2012 and build a brand new national stadium on the same site.  I’m not sure if that is actually happening now or not.
