Second self-introduction for abroad Parma Official fans club. Nick from Giannina tells the story behind his club, Parma Club Grecia, recently become official. Greek delegation use to come to Parma every year, discover some pictures in the slide show. Look forward for meeting you in Parma vs Lazio match on 21st October!

“Hi to all Parma family. My name is Nick Paramithiotis and I live in Greece. The first acquaintance with Parma was the Christmas of 1997, when my little brother gave me a gift, the 2nd official shirt of 1997/98. This would be the beginning of a big passion and a big love for Parma. My childhood dream was a Greek club of Parma and that dream came true in the summer of 2012. The goal of Parma Club Grecia is to unite all of Parma’s Greek fans and keep the flag of the team up, also in Greece. The beginning was difficult, but the club now has over 100 members. Just a month ago, our club became a official member of Centro Coordinamento Parma Clubs. We would like to thank Parma Fans Worldwide for help.

Everyday we publish on our Facebook page news for our favorite team, tributes to the history of the team, to the players who have played in Parma, to the fans and many others. Every year we travel to Parma to see the team. Our club is the only one in Greece that has made a trip to the lower championships like Serie D, keeping our promise that good and bad, we will be there. We also have our own store with products such as t-shirts, hoodies, hats, scarfs and many more, for all Parma Fans.

Thank you for hospitality. See you in Parma on October 19th.

FORZA PARMA PER SEMPRE E OVUNQUE”

Live from a cage

If you think Parma fans where few yesterday night read here.

Buses left Parma at 10 am in the morning, were blocked at highway exit for security search – men had to keep belts away – then let get into the stadium after match start. People that spent one or two day off the work, made 1600 km trip in 24 hours, couldn’t watch the entire match. They were back in Parma at 8 am. The first place where they put them was this, then moved a bit closer to the pitch.

If you have Instagram there is also a video thanks to Parma Club “Oltre I Confini”

 

Our consideration is that if Serie A is miles away from having sold out stands is also because this kind of reception. 187 people put in a cage and obliged to watch a partial show – a bad match but this is another story – from there.

We lost respect for fans somewhere and security reasons can be the excuse.

Only consolation is that we feel that, in Parma, the Club is far from this kind of policies and opposite team fans can always watch from a good place the match and pay honest price for the tickets. As told some days ago, not everywhere it is cheap like in Tardini.

Security is important, very important, but also give the chance to people that paid for a show to enjoy it.

Thanks to that 187 supporters. By the heart.

It is not the first time you read this post but it is so important for us we prefer to be even boring.

The season is about to officially start with our coming back to Serie A. On Sunday against Udinese it will be emotional, despite the result. It doesn’t matter.

We have to stop a minute to think about this incredible three years we just lived from the failure to the coming back to serie A with three straight promotions.

We have to say “thank you” to all the players, managers, trainers that are part of Parma Calcio 1913 or have been in last three years. Thanks to all the supporters that followed the team even in serie D and even in bad times.

Stealing the words to a friend that we are about to introduce you: “Don’t tell to failed teams they will do like Parma. You know it is impossible”

In Parma there is that “kind of magic” that is not easy to explain to who is not a supporter. Our mission is to show that to everyone that would like to get closer to Crusaders passion, as we explained with the Hidden Crusader post.

Parma is not like other places. Parma Calcio is not like other teams.

Join us and you will discover it.

Three years ago

Today is exactly three years since Valerio Pennicino/Getty Images took this pic that is on Parma Calcio Facebook wall.

This was the second friendly match of new Parma Calcio 1913 in a village few kilometers from Parma: no official shirt on, some incredulous face, some determined. The Captain, of course, and some face we would learn to be used to: Ciccio Corapi, Lauria, Giorgino, Zommers, Cacioli… Boys of Curva Nord always there, everywhere.

We come from here.

Don’t forget it after the first, after the second, after the third match lost.

Thank you to Dario for making us remember this moment.
