Parma, 9 April 2022 – President Kyle Krause and all of Parma Calcio 1913 would like to thank the FIGC, the Italy women’s national team and every staff member who made the Azzurre’s first-ever visit to the Stadio Ennio Tardini a very special one. It was a wonderful and indescribable first, with many families and children turning out to support the girls. It’s a passion that keeps on growing. At the end of the first half, FIGC General Secretary Marco Brunelli presented President Kyle Krause with a personalised shirt with ‘Krause’ and the number 10 on the back. In exchange, he received an Enrico Serafino bottle of wine. Also in attendance were the following: Coach Beppe Iachini; technical staff members Maths Elfvendal and Vincenzo Mirra; Sporting Director Mauro Pederzoli; Crociati player Elias Cobbaut; Parma’s Women’s Sector teams and Parma Women Coach Ilenia Nicoli; the Methodology team and its Head, Filippo Galli.

Milena Bertolini’s side went on to beat Lithuania 7-0 in World Cup qualifying. A great evening both on and off the pitch, then.

There’s one final thing that Parma Calcio 1913 would like to say to the Azzurre: thank you, girls. Keep it up! Thank you for choosing Parma. We will always welcome you with open arms because this is your home.
