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.
