It seems to be back at those glory times, when Parma had relationships in many countries around the world – also thanks to the Parmalat commercial links – and could include football schools in every continent, hotbeds of talents. We are starting rebuilding it, finally, and this is a great news especially for abroad fans.

Today, Parma Academy Panama, the first intentional Academy project for the reborn Parma Calcio, will be hosted in Tardini and will step the pitch before Parma vs Milan. Those young football talents, lead by Alexis Gomez, Sport Director, have been traveling trough Europe and visited Collecchio training center where they met CEO Luca Carra and all the players and had a taste of what we all hope it will be their future training center.

Boys visited also Madrid and they could touch the Champions League for the first time… who knows if the second time they will touch it will be… Good Luck, guys!

We wish all the best to Panama young talents, to Parma Academy Panama and to this International project that we hope will have more extension.

Next stop: Champions League final 2029!

Let the Team feel our support

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“.

We with the voice, you with the heart… We’ll win!

Parma and Sampdoria: an historical celebration

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 blucerchiata shirt 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.

You can find the blucrociata and a special box with both shirts on Parma Calcio website:

Season tickets holders have a 20% off in Tardini shop and online.

#blucrociati riddle

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.
