HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 1928, but was not an organised club until 1935 under the name Deja Burrel. The name was changed in 1945 to 31 Korriku Burreli, which was again changed in 1951 to Puna Burrel. Between 1958 and 1991 the club was renamed 31 Korriku Burrel before changing to its current name Burreli.

The club competed in the lower leagues of Albania until 1981 when they participated in the Albanian National Championship for the first time. But they were relegated in their first top flight season after finishing bottom of the table during the 1981–82 season.[1] They were back in the top division after just one season in the Kategoria e Parë and were part of the 1983–84 Albanian National Championship. They were relegated again for the second time in the space of just two-years after finishing rock bottom of the table, again being relegated with just 20 points through the entire season.[2]
