Boys: 30 years from that 27th may and a limited scarf to celebrate it

We share the communication of Boys Parma 1977 published on their website and Facebook page. Who is interested in the scarf and can’t contact Boys directly can write us. We will do our best to help:

“THE BOYS TOWARDS 43 YEARS.

Two months have passed since the last trip to Turin. Two months without headquarters, without parts, without aggregation. In the face we have the prospect of remaining for a long period without stages, with a thousand uncertainties as to what it will be like when they reopen, and if we could go back to experiencing them from Ultras as we have always done. The first step will be to reopen the headquarters, return to live and reason from the Group, find the incentives and motivations to survive, try to reach all our activities, those that we will manage a rate anyway, increasing those extra cheering, to get to next year to still have the stimuli and the need to continue to keep the headquarters open. In August there will be 43 years of the boys’ life, 43 years in which the boys became communities, developing belonging to the young Parmigiani and becoming the reference point for all Parma fans. Now it is everyone’s job to remain united, to continue to be a community, not individual fans, to preserve traditions and defend, we remember that what we have earned and where we have come in these years. We will try to organize aggregation moments, as soon as possible, in order to find ourselves again, and not to lose the sense of aggregation and friendship that has been created over the years, cheering together in the Curva Nord Matteo Bagnaresi.

On May 27th will be the thirty years of our first promotion in Serie A. We had plans to celebrate this day, but unfortunately nothing can be done, it is not the right time. However, we thought of a way to remember the 30 years of the promotion, a day like Vicenza, 4 May 86, Wembley, the Bologna playoff, the bankruptcy, the promotion in Spezia, the days that made our community great.

We decided to make a scarf for May 27, to fix one of the most important days lived by the boys and our city in history, a memory for those who come, despite everything, want to continue to keep our values, our traditions alive and the ideal Ultras of our city: THE BOYS PARMA 1977.

30 YEARS FROM 27TH MAY 1990

This date will always be special for Parma, from more than 30 years it is tattooed in our town history. A day that elevated Parma, his Ultras and his fans to a pure pleasure state, a day that gave us the first memorable promotion in Serie A, that launched us into following 30 years, full of satisfactions, from both ultras and football points of view. A day that gave us the most important trophy, the Ghetto banner, main symbol of hated Reggiana cousin. […] We were in Tardini, not in Wembley, but what Parma lives that 27th may 1990, it was maybe the best day for Boys Parma 1977 in our 43 years.

We decided to celebrate 30 years from 27th may 1990 with a scarf that could honor both conquers and keep those memories alive.

The scarf is a limited edition and who is interested in it can write to Boys Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CrUsAdErS

When ParmaFansWorldwide ordeal started we couldn’t imagine it would grow so fast and so freely as it did. Surely it happened thanks to the passion of you all, but nothing could be possible without the open-mindedness, the kindness, the friendliness and the curiosity of some people that helped us, giving us the support and motivations to go on in the project of a worldwide Parma fans network.

One of those inspirational person, Massimo Zannoni, aged 72, passed away yesterday.

A part from being huge collector, historical memory of the Club and co-founder of Parma Museum association, President of Parma Club Mediolanum and writer, beloved professor for generations of students (read Gigi Buffon Instagram memory post here, between the others), he was a friend.

He was our friend and was a friend for all the fans we used to bring the Tardini’s Ernesto Ceresini Museum on match day, to whom he always asked us to translate his memories of some old experience as a Parma supporter. You can’t imagine how many epic stories Massimo could tell you.

He was so proud and enthusiast for our project he organized, in February 2019, a lecture dedicated to the abroad Parma support and we will always be thankful for that.

Massimo, we are sorry not having the chance to listen anymore to your epic tales as a traveling supporters and as a curious man, but we are sure you’ll always have an audience for that.

Ciao, Crociato Massimo!
