Collecchio Sport Center: The “Crusaders Village”

The Collecchio Sport Center was built in 1996 and renovated in 2013. It is located 15 kilometers southwest of the city of Parma.

It consists of five regulation grass fields, one with synthetic grass, and one covered with artificial turf, with reduced dimensions.

One of the five fields has a capacity of 1200 seats, and at the center are facilities for the first team and the youth teams. In addition to the dressing rooms, there are two gyms, two rooms equipped for physiotherapy, several rooms for medical studies, and a pool.

Flanked by the sports facilities is the managerial center, housing different offices, meeting rooms, the media room, a restaurant, ten double bedrooms and two suites.

Parma Calcio 1913, saw the value of this complex on a technical and human level, as well as its ability to foster a sense of belonging to the club and allowed the youth teams, starting with the pulcini, to train at the complex.

This gave rise to the name “Crusaders Village”.
