This is a translated post from the original Boys Parma 1977 statement after Atalanta fans used Tardini as they home ground in the first Serie A matches since their one is closed for renewal works.
“ATALANTA FANS IN CURVA NORD
Model behavior of Atalanta fans in our Curva. During two matches they treated our Curva with maximum respect for our traditions and our Ultras history. We never doubt about that, since we had chances to discover fairness, loyalty and respect of Bergamo people in meetings, in stadium and in the streets. Vecchia Guardia lads hommenaged Bagna [Matteo Bagnaresi, the Parma Ultra died during a travel to a match and to whom is nominated Tardini Curva Nord] with a scarf, left under his plate.
Boys Parma made a call to all Curva Nord in order to meet in their headquarter on Tuesday 10th at 9 PM
The announcement was followed by a video that collect the three straight promotions, since failure to coming back to serie A.
From the post on Boys Parma Facebook page:
In the video we remember the three emotional seasons that brought us back to our category. It has been wonderful restart from Serie D, a special unity was created between fanbase, town, team and board, tipically Parmesan, the same that could be experienced in Nineties and that contributed to bring in our town many Cups. Baraye with the balaclava under Curva Nord is the symbol of this special link that contributed to the climb. This link it slowly low down changing league because of the changing of the relationship between fans and club, until having that distance that is typical – a sort of routine – in serie A, and that we all were used to and that we want to avoid. Serie D is not that far away, we all remember it well the climate we created together. We started from Arzignano, we run a lot with the awareness and a little effort by all the parts of Parma framework we will go even farer.
Tuesday 10th, in our headquarter, we will make a meeting open to everybody that is interested in this theme. We are waiting for you to come back being what we were.
First Parma two matches of the season will be on Saturday 24th at 6 PM in Tardini with Juventus and on Sunday 1st September at 8:45 PM in Dacia Arena against Udinese.
As reported on this link – unfortunately just in italian – Parma reiterate with a statement on his official website that, like in past season tickets will be for sale not before 10 days before the match so don’t trust who try to sell tickets before that date and trust just Ticketing circuit.
Unfortunately tickets for big matches as ones with Juventus, Inter, Milan, Roma and Napoli will not be for sale online but just in Italian TicketOne box offices. And, if it will be like last season, in some case just for sale in Parma province box offices.
Don’t trust secondary ticketing websites: you risk to pay overprice and discover couple of days before the match that the tickets are not available.
Write us if you need any kind of information and if you are planning a trip to Tardini.

New Parma Calcio first kit was just released by Club and Erreà.
In total respect of Parma tradition is a white shirt with black cross. Other kits will be released in following weeks, for the moment you can puchase this one directly from Club official website: http://shop.parmacalcio1913.com/en/
An important agency specialized in monitorizing Football account social networks interactions, Social Media Soccer, just announced the results of his analysis through the whole Serie A season.
Parma Calcio won the Twitter Challenge with the best points performance ever. This competition calculates interactions generated by Serie A clubs Twitter accounts in real time during the league matches and put in relationship with the followers base.
Parma won the challenge by overtaking even Juventus, the italian club with the biggest fan base. This important result testify the great work of Nicolò Fabris and his communication team and is it a fundamental analysis that confirm the value of our Club for the sponsor’s interest.
The great results on Twitter are supported by the whole social networks collaborations: Facebook, YouTube and Instagram, where Parma had an impressive rise.
Boys Parma 1977 asked all the fan base to meet at 1 PM in front of the Tardini gate to receive the bus of the players arriving to the stadium and let them feel all our support for a crucial match of the season.
We have to let feel the team all the support possible during the match. As Alessandro Lucarelli said few days ago: “Fiorentina have to feel they are playing against not just a team, but against a whole town“.
Rumors where right at least this time, this is something historical, that will make jersey collectors go crazy.
Probably for the first time in Italy two football clubs will exchange theirs kits before the match instead than after.
On Sunday 5th May in Tardini Parma will play with a blucerchiatashirt and Sampdoria with a crociata jersey, properly designed by Erreà and Joma in a maybe unprecedented attempt to celebrate a friendship that last since season 1990/91 and that was started by fans – because fans are always who make football being Football – and took on by Clubs marketing department.
The match worn jerseys will be sold on charity auction: selling of Parma shirts profits will go to Genova Gaslini Children Hospital and selling of Sampdoria shirts will support Parma Children Hospital.
Can’t wait to see them on the pitch. There will be a bit of confusion at the beginning, maybe, but surely a good time together for the fanbases in Tardini.
Blucrociati, this is the hashtag (and the claim) of and unknown venture by Parma Calcio and Sampdoria that will be announced this afternoon at 530 pm CEST on Parma social channels. It is a mix between the word blucerchiati, a way to call Sampdoria fans due to their blue jersey with iconic circles, and crociati, Parma fans, obviously referred to the Parma Calcio crusader historical home kit.
As known, Parma and Sampdoria fanbases have a strong friendship born between Ultras Tito Cucchiaroni and Boys Parma 1977 during season 1990/91, when Boys made a banner with “A noi l’Europa, a voi la gloria: lo scudetto alla Sampdoria” [Europe for us, Glory for you: Scudetto to Sampdoria] congratulating for the victory of the league, the last time a non-mainstream club won a Serie A title.
Since then, the friendship extended to all the fan bases – it is quite common to see a blucerchiata shirt or a Sampdoria scarf in Tardini Curva Nord and yellow and blue colors in Marassi Gradinata Sud – and to Clubs. Friendship it is so strong that it is common to see great collaboration between Clubs for lowing ticket prices, making flags parade and… something else that we will discover this evening.
Stay tuned, we will update as the mystery, started when a full page on Italian main sport newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport appeared today, will be unveiled.
