Veliaj, alongside the legends of Tirana, Partizan and Dinamo, addresses the Duke: Who has the main job sport, should have done more
The Mayor of Tirana, Erion Veliaj, brought together yesterday all the most prominent names of Albanian football, who have written history with the jerseys of Partizan, Tirana and Dinamo, who returned to the green field to bring back once again the emotions of the Capital derbies . In the activity organized by the Municipality of Tirana, Veliaj said that he will continue to support the sport with investments and premiums based on the results achieved.
"I can not wait that this year, when Tirana holds the title of European Youth Capital, to increase investments in sports. We have indeed set a prize every year - Tirana received 150 thousand euros a year because it won the championship - but, as the city has grown, Dajti, Farka, Kashari and many other teams deserve to be supported and we will invest based on the results that bring. Tirana belongs to everyone! Taxes are paid by everyone - teams, benefactors or even those who do not play at all and are not fans - and as long as it belongs to everyone, we will have to reward the teams based on the cups they bring, as we are doing with Sport Klub Tirana ", said Veliaj.
Meanwhile, during his speech, Velia seems to have addressed the President of the AFF, Armando Duka, for whom he said that he should have invested more in sports.
“Ne do të bëjmë tonën, edhe pse sporti nuk është gjëja jonë kryesore dhe ndoshta, ata që e kanë punë kryesore sportin, duhet të kishin bërë më shumë. Tirana është gjysma e popullsisë, është gjysma e ekonomisë dhe nuk mund të jetë bashkia e vetme që merret edhe me peshëngritjen, kërcimin së gjati, atletikën dhe futbollin. Por, ne do të bëjmë pjesën tonë dhe do e qajmë”, theksoi Veliaj.
Kreu i Bashkisë bëri të ditur se do të vijojë puna për rikthimin e terreneve sportive për t’ia rikthyer ato komunitetit.
As soon as we opened "Fahrie Hotin", we did a fantastic job with the Lapraka field, which we had to expropriate and return to the Lapraka boys and girls. The same is happening with private investments, with which we are cooperating. "Redi Jupi has invested here, and we are helping with the road, to connect the lights or water, all other needs", underlined Veliaj.
The tournament cup was won by the Dinamo team, while Tirana and Partizani also received praise. For six years, the Municipality of Tirana has launched a campaign to promote sports activities in the city, opening all school gyms, which can be used by young people and the community around the school. Special attention has been paid to the addition of sports fields to it
