In London, together

The greatness of this event is difficult to understand to who is not part of our network but let us say we are so proud of what happened last Monday 13rd evening in Golazio bar, London.

We met up with a group of Parma fans to watch Bologna vs Parma. Some of the supporters we knew previously since we already met in Tardini this season or will come soon, some other were new entries. The group represented quite well the heterogeneity of our support outside Italian borders. There were: Italians living in London (both from Parma and other Italian towns); fans from London and from rest of UK (one made an almost 4 hours travel to be there!), Italians coming just for the event and an Indonesian proud member of Parmagiani. Between them also two fans that were in Wembley during Winners cup final – that didn’t know each other before – and that arrived with their sons: a new generation of Parma fans growing! There was also a Macau journalist that came to report what this crazy group of people were doing and that we want to thank you for her professionally (and patience).

It has been an unique chance to meet and share time together, thanks to the trust and the kind hospitality of Tim and his Golazio crew that made us feeling home between wonderful 90s italian football memorabilia, pizza and Italian beers.

Thanks to all who participate, to who couldn’t due to a really bad timing for a football match and to Gianfranco Zola that has been our PR 😉

Hands up for Toronto fans first meeting

Gino, Steve and Christian organized the first meeting in Toronto, Canada to watch Parma together with other friends.

They didn’t know each other some weeks ago, and got in contact thanks to our network and the USA & Canada Facebook Group, discovering they were not the only Hidden Crusader in their town.

This is the demonstration that supporting an Italian football team from abroad doesn’t mean being alone. It can mean find other people to share same passion with.

Really well done, proud of you all, guys!
