How to go to Tardini from the train station

If you are arriving in Parma by train you have to know that to the Tardini it is almost a 20 minutes walk. You can also make it a bit longer passing thought the beautiful city center and piazza Garibaldi then turning into via Repubblica.

If you don’t want to walk there are some buses from the station, almost every 30 minutes:

number 21 (direction Sorbolo);

number 23 (direction S.Ilario, not on Sunday);

number 9 (direction via De Chirico).

During match day, due to the security traffic block, the stop for all these busses should be “Barriera Repubblica”, close to “Barilla Center” mall, where there is a big fountain in the middle of the road and from where it is 3 minutes walking to Tardini. Anyway tell to the driver or to people that you are directed to the “Ennio”.

Ticket costs 1,20 if bought in advance from a kiosk or 2 euro on the bus (bring exact amount possibly, driver should’t have)

To come back from Tardini, traffic is usually quite busy and it is better probably going by feet. In case you have few time to catch the train you could call the Taxi at this number: +39 (0)521252562 Better reserve it in advance and giving “Barriera Repubblica”, around the fountain as a meeting point, since it is already in the way to the station.

On Sunday 31st Parma vs Atalanta match day, Boys Parma 1977 will realize a special choreography dedicated to Matteo Bagnaresi in Curva Nord, the beloved Boys tragically passed away 11 years ago today.

After the match all the fan base is invited to Casa di Matteo headquarter, the association founded by Matteo Bagnaresi parents in via Saragat 33 and that we talked about for the Ultras and social network meeting.

Casa di Matteo is a precious place that give practical help to kids with school problems and that organizes receptive activities. The website (in italian): www.fondazionematteobagnaresi.it

To testify the strength of the link between Boys and the memory of a brother like Matteo Bagnaresi – Curva Nord is named after him – nothing more clear than Boys Parma voice: “We are a community, Parma fans, a sort of big family, Matteo memory moved us even more close together and strengthened that ideal that link us since 42 years, thanks to which we met each other and make us proud of being Boys Parma 1977


Atalanta stand sold out

The low price for away fans area policy, the project we talked about past days and that was tested for Parma vs Atalanta tickets got a great answer by Atalanta fans that will fill all the Tardini away fans area.

In few hours, thanks to low prices (15 euro normal ticket, 5 euro for under 14) and to the well-known passion of fans from Bergamo, the 3800 tickets went sold out.

We hope, as said, this will be the beginning of a spread routine also in other stadia.

Who is coming to Parma for the match and need some advice for tickets or fans meeting, please contact us via mail or WhatsApp.

Parma in Viareggio Cup Semifinal

Parma Primavera (under 19), will play today at 2 PM CET against Genoa in Viareggio Cup Semifinals, one of the most important competition for under 19 teams in Italy.

In Italy you can follow the match live on Rai Sport + HD on TV and online at this link: http://www.raisport.rai.it/dl/raiSport/dirette/ContentItem-71748fa3-9966-4d31-afda-919adee82426.html

If in your country, due to TV rights, the streaming is not working you will probably watch it on Parma Calcio Youth Division YouTube Channel next days, where you can find full Quarter Finals winning game against Fiorentina.

This result has been surprising since Parma is in low ranking in Primavera 2 league but Fiorentina is fighting for the title in Primavera 1 league and was one of the most accredited for the Cup victory.
