These are the kind of ventures we are more proud of: demonstrate that is possible to be rivals on the pitch but friends outside. Football is both, rivalry and friendship, a good reason to aggregate people and know each other in order to respect each other.
Parma Fans Worldwide Greater China Division, together with Fiorentina Supporters in Hong Kong, is going to organize a meeting to watch the match together next Sunday 19th May.
Besides of the meeting there will be a mini football shirts exhibition with almost 20 jerseys form different eras by Parma and Fiorentina, thanks to Roger Kwan, the Fiorentina shirt owner and member of Fiorentina Supporters in Hong Kong which take part to the exhibition.
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 😉

Bologna vs Parma will be on Monday 13th May at 7 PM CEST. Yes, you read properly, on a Monday evening at 7 PM.
Parma and Bologna are not that far but it is really a timing that goes against the fans that would like to follow the team in this dramatic last matches of the season.
Who is going to watch Bologna vs Parma on Monday in Renato Dall’Ara stadium can buy tickets from Vivaticket at this link and choose “Curva Ospiti” for away fans area (both “A” or “B”areas are fine). There is no roof but, after all the rain we got on last Sunday ,statistics and The Crow are by our side: “It can’t rain all the time”.
Sometimes you start following a team because of your classmate, sometimes because of the colors. Some other because of the name. Casualties, maybe. Or maybe not.
Colin and Neil are from Belfast, both strong supporters of Crusaders FC that started an interesting sort of gemellaggio between their local team and Parma Calcio, Italian Crusaders, following also matches in Italy.
Yesterday Crusaders FC won the Northern Ireland FA Cup – 3-0 against Ballinamarland – and our guys sent in real time a shot with the trophy and their Parma/Crusaders flag.
We took the chance to thank you Colin and Neil for their contribution to our Travelling Parmigiani photo album and, of course, congratulate with Crusaders FC for the victory.
Many of you contacted us about the limited edition “BluCrociati” shirt made for the 5th May match against Sampdoria because you discovered around internet some “supposed” trustable sellers that are boasting about the selling of this kit at special price.
To clarify for everybody, collectors and not, in Italy, UK, Hong Kong, wherever, after we talked directly with Parma Calcio marketing departement and Erreà in the person of Aris Briselli, owner of Erreà Play Store in Parma (the only official show room and shop of Erreà in town): the price for the jersey is 99 euro and it is available ONLY from two sellers: Parma Calcio – online and in Tardini store – and Erreà – online and in Erreà Play store in Parma in via Toscanini.
Only in shops in town there is the chance for personalization with players names and number. In the moment in which we write the only names available in Tardini store are Inglese, Gervinho, Bruno Alves and Kucka and the cost for the personalization is 15 euro. It is a limited edition jersey, even with special numbers, so the Club decided to limit the names available.
Only season ticket holders can buy the shirt in Parma with a 20% discount and the Club sent some 20% discount coupon code to some frequent buyer from the online store. This is the maximum discount possible.
So, the less you could pay for a BluCrociati jersey is 79 euro (65+22% VAT) in case you buy it online with a frequent buyer coupon code – if you are in a no vat country you could have duty discount on this tax due to local rules – or if you are a Parma season ticket holder.
As both, Parma Calcio and Erreà told us, don’t trust who sell at lower price even if he is saying that kits arrive directly from the factory or from some “mysterious” distributor: kits are produced in Europe and are all located in Parma at the moment of the sell opening.
The goalkeeper red jersey was produced just for the players and will not be for public sale: don’t trust who say it is available, otherwise Parma and Erreà would have it in their store, don’t you think?
