Grazie Capitano by Parma fans worldwide

Do you remember when we called a whip round for a gift for Alessandro Lucarelli?

We made it.

Together with satyrical Parma commentor Il Plin, that realized the lyrics on the Toto Cutugno song “l’italiano”, we asked abroad Parma fans to sing an italian song to say thank you to Alessandro Lucarelli and send him their personal messages.

Tonight we finally presented the video to him and all the club.

This is our way to let people know that Parma fans worldwide are a lot and that care the Club even after relegation to serie D and, even more because of that, they want to let hear their voice, their love, their thank you.

Parma Calcio is not like other Club. Will never have same number of fans as some other most known team, but even if less , they are definitely “something special”.

And part of the Parma Family.

Thanks to all those Hidden Crusaders: Aleksi 🇫🇮, Amr 🇪🇬, Andrea 🇸🇮, Andrea 🇮🇹🇦🇺, Andreas 🇦🇹, Antonis 🇬🇷, Brian 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿, Christian 🇦🇹, Dave & Emilia 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿, Dario 🇧🇪, Dejan 🇭🇷, Dejan 🇸🇮, Diego 🇪🇨, Donny 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿, Dimitris 🇬🇷, Dmitriy 🇷🇺, Ernest 🇭🇰, Fkin 🇲🇴, Flora & Galina 🇭🇷, Gio 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿, Giovanni 🇮🇹🇮🇱, Gino 🇨🇦, Guðjòn 🇮🇸, Gusti 🇮🇩, Hana 🇭🇷, Hidehiko 🇯🇵, Hrvoje 🇭🇷, Ieva 🇱🇻, Jose Esteban 🇪🇸 🇩🇪, Keung 🇭🇰, Krisztian 🇭🇺, Luka 🇭🇷, Łukasz 🇵🇱, Marko 🇷🇸, Nenad 🇲🇪, Nick 🇬🇷, Nikica 🇲🇰, Panos 🇬🇷, Parmagiani Indonesia 🇮🇩, Parma Fans Worldwide Greater China 🇨🇳 🇭🇰 🇹🇼 🇲🇴, Raphael 🇧🇷, Robert 🇭🇺, Samir & Ema 🇧🇦, Semir 🇧🇦, Tamas 🇭🇺, Tazzy 🇹🇷, Toni 🇷🇴.

During last weekend, two delegates of Official Parma Fans Club Hungary were invited to the Hungarian TV channel Digisport to talk about Parma Calcio.

The presenter asked to Tamas and Barnabas – president and vice-president of the fans club – about recent past events and the future prospects with the return of the Nuovo Inizio magnificent 7 at the helm of the club and some other technical question about our club.

At the end of the show, Tamas and Barnabas gave the presenter a jersey with n°12,  that symbolizes all Parma supporters.

In Hungary, the interest for Parma Calcio is high since nineties: fans are not a lot but, for sure, well represented. Thanks guys, for keeping our colors high!

Mission of this page is to bring Parma – all “Parma world”, not just the Club – closer to abroad fans, in order to understand better that “kind of magic” all of us feel once we step into that bicycle busy streets.

This is one of the ventures we would like to bring to you: Parma Facciamo Squadra is a charity project born in 2013 thanks to the contribution of three local business Chiesi Farmaceutici, Fondazione Cariparma and Barilla Group (also part of  Nuovo Inizio, in the person of Guido Barilla) that donate one euro for every euro that the charity fundraiser gain from citizens (Multiplier Effect).

effetto-moltiplicatore

The money collected will be devolved in projects for kids in need: food and primary needs, education, sport and culture. The amount will not be given to only one association but distributes to the families really in the need that will be chosen by a council of association spread in Parma territory that works daily by this families side: Centro di Aiuto alla Vita, Rete dei Laboratori Compiti, Polisportiva Gioco, Emporio Parma, Famiglia Più, Portos, AUSER, Giocamico, Per Ricominciare.

This is why the name of the campaign is “Let’s team up”: the subjects involved are many and widespread.

There will be many fundraising ventures, the one the video – with Lucarelli, Faggiano, Carra and Piovani – refers to is “Anolini solidali”, a charity sell for handmade anolini typical parmesan dish – never call them “tortellini”! – in piazza Garibaldi next week-end.

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for the network”

It’s too big words, we know but we are really proud of what happened on Sunday.

In San Siro we had a meeting with fans from Official Parma Club Crociati Balkan, some different fans groups from UK and, as announced in a previous post, a live video call with our “Greater China” division that organized together with Hong Kong Milan Fans Club – that we thank you officially – an event together to share time and watch the match.

Some other little steps to create the abroad “Parma Family” fans network.

Don’t forget #7

AC Milan VS Parma from third ring green – credit: www.parmafansworldwide.com

Don’t forget that three years ago in Serie D we had to watch many matches from the ground level, stuck to a grid.

San Siro third ring is far from the ground but we step again into Scala del Calcio, and watching a Scala theatre Opera even from the highest gallery is a great experience.

Especially after lost matches, never forget where we come from.

In San Siro or in Hong Kong the reason is yellow and blue

46463476_942113062644296_3861206638832648192_n

 

We don’t know it it will be the first time ever but for us it will be surely a first preview. Our bigger step since now was international whatsapping while watching a match, so today we will definitely step up.

As usual since the beginning of the season there will be a mixed abroad fans gathering during Parma match. In San Siro there will be mainly Balkans – almost always present! – and UK fans joining other Parma supporters in Scala del Calcio third ring green.

On the other side of the world, in Hong Kong, recently born and very active Parma Calcio supporters group “Parma Fans Worldwide – Greater China” – a joint venture between HK and Macau Parma Fans – organized together with AC Milan Hong Kong fans club an event. They will meet and share time together, playing Fifa, eating, drinking and, of course watching the match.

What we will try to do, if 4G will work good, is a live video call from San Siro stadium during the break. Just to say “hi”, share few minutes together and realize that we are all there for the same reason: with different stories, yes, but with the same passion for yellow and blue. And especially contributing create a network of people that like to share time together even if far away.
