Are glory days about to come? Parma won a trophy yesterday. It was the Parmagiani Indonesia Cup, played by four team: White Crociati Parma (winner), Gialloblu Parma, Red Crociati Parma and Black Phoenix Parma.
Not so difficult to win you think? Probably, but for the moment White Crociati Parma have a new trophy in their showcase.
Think about this when your wife is bothering you because you spend couple of hours to watch your team on tv or dream about take a plane and flight to Tardini.
We talked many times about Parmagiani Indonesia, probably the biggest and best organized local Parma Fans community outside Italy. A part of chatting in social networks, organizing couple of national gathering per year, playing a football league with three different teams (5, 7 and 11 players) they do the most important thing: they meet up and spend time together.
This is a quick collection of pictures of last match against Inter meetings. Consider that in Indonesia the match was displayed live at 4 AM. Yes, you understood, they woke up to watch their team at 4 am. In some cases they watches in a bar – sometimes together with Inter fans, and this is great – in some other at home.
You can think three things, now:
1) that they are crazy, but at a closer look nobody is normal, you know
2) that you are proud of them, and we all are
3) that you are not the only one to set the alarm clock in the middle of the night to watch Parma on TV and that you need to find other crazy people like you to meet up. And we are here to help you in that.
Parmagiani Indonesia took their annual picture at the beginning of the year to present their new jersey.
This is the Parmagiani Jakarta region team that will compete in EFFA Competition in 2019 against other 20 European team fans club on football, mini soccer (7 players) and futsal (5 players) tournaments.
EFFA – European Football Fans Club Association in Indonesia – group together Indonesian fans club of European football teams and organize an annual football, fitsal and mini soccer tournament.
This picture will be available on Parmagiani Calendar about to be published.
What for us it was a huge step that we proudly celebrated in previous post for Parmagiani Indonesia it is very common: gather, meeting opposite team fans and share time together. They made it in every region where they have a section of the fans club.
As you should know, Parmagiani Indonesia National Gathering, took place last week-end.
Parmagiani Indonesia is a big fans community, few of them ever been to Italy but the passion they have for the team is huge and represents a reason for meet up, share experiences and have good time together. This picture is more iconic and representative than every words. If you follow their social channels and they personal accounts you will realize that, for some reason, they live in a better world.
We translated, thanks to Google Translate, the post they made at the end of the event.
