Ties are played in a two-legged format similar to those of European competitions. If the aggregate score is tied after both games, the team with the higher number of away goals advances. If the number of away goals is equal in both games, the match is decided by extra time and a penalty shoot-out, if necessary.

Preliminary roundEdit

In order to reduce the number of participating teams for the First Round to 32, a preliminary tournament is played. In contrast to the main tournament, the preliminary tournament is held as a single-leg knock-out competition.[2] Matches were played on 29 August 2014 and involved the teams from Kategoria e Parë and Kategoria e Dytë.
