2015–16 Albanian Cup (Albanian: Kupa e Shqipërisë) is the sixty-four season of Albania's annual cup competition. KF Laçi are the most recent winners of the competition, that being their second Cup trophy.[1]

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 round

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 27 August 2015 and involved the teams from Albanian Second Division.
