Collecchio, 4 May 2022 – There were some special guests in attendance at Collecchio Sports Centre, for the Crociati First Team’s training session.

The lads from the Va’ Pensiero association, who can be seen wearing their Crociati shirts, represent Parma Calcio 1913 in the Paralympic and Experimental Football Division, of the Italian Football Federation.
