ReorganizationEdit

In 2013, KF Llapi with the aim of better organization with the initiation of the Municipality of Podujevo led by Mayor Agim Veliu, held the electoral assembly with the board of directors who supported the long term project presented by Nexhat Dumnica as President and Tahir Batatina as chief of the technical staff and thus began the mission towards the Football Superleague of Kosovo, with clear ambitions and clear organization. In the first meeting of the football fund, club leaders Nexhat Dumnica and Muhamet Hasani presented their plan for a revived Llapi financially and with new goals.[2]
