Albania's World Cup qualifier against Israel moved for 'security reasons'

Albania fans will have to watch their team in Elbasan instead of Shkoder.

TIRANA, Albania -- The Albanian football federation says the venue for the country's World Cup qualifying match against Israel has been changed for "security reasons."

Saturday's match had been scheduled to be held at the Loro Borici Stadium in Shkoder, 120 kilometres north of the capital, Tirana. It has been changed to the Elbasan Arena, 55 kilometres south of Tirana in Elbasan.

Federation spokesman Tritan Kokona declined to comment on the reason for the change.

The decision follows media reports Tuesday that an alleged terror group had planned an attack during the match.

The prosecutor's office declined to comment on an ongoing investigation.
