Parma, 18 September 2022 – It is a reference point to the century-long Crociati History and a bond to the city that Parma Calcio constitutes a social and cultural heritage, and not just a name bearer.

Every year, in December, the Club remembers the date it was founded (16 December 1913) by producing a commemorative shirt that has this inspiration, this inclination, and this destination. Our inspiration this year goes back 20 years, to 2002, when the Club lifted its eighth, and last, trophy.

It was the third Coppa Italia to be placed into our glorious honours list.

It was a 2-legged final against Juventus, with the players wearing a blue shirt with gold-coloured trimming, while the goalkeeper jersey was pink with the same gold linings. With this historic shirt, we celebrate 109 years of Parma Calcio.

Both First Team squads, men and women, will wear the special commemorative jersey in all of their league games in December.

The match shirts worn will eventually be sold with proceeds going to charities in Parma, as will a number of Limited Edition shirts, which will be on sale at the Club shop and online.

Production of the shirt will be done by our sponsor Erreà, but the graphic design, out of several options, will be left to the public. Last Friday, we launched a poll for supporters to vote for their choice.

To vote and state your preferred choice, go to the dedicated page on our website:

Voting will end on Saturday 24 September at 19:00 CEST during our community event ‘Andiamo al Parma’  behind the Curva Nord, where the version picked by supporters will be announced.

VOTING INFO

To be decided in the vote are the shirt’s side designs under the sleeves and a slogan.

The part under the sleeves, to allow greater perspiration, will have two choices:

  • a background graphic composed of a repeated image of the Coppa Italia, won in 2002, on a blue background with a gold image (standard match jersey) and on a pink background with a blue image (goalkeeper jersey)
  • background repeatedly written 2012-2022”: blue background and written in gold (standard match shirt) and blue background written in pink (goalkeeper jersey)

Inside the collar, there will be a slogan from one of the Curva Nord’s songs.

Here are the three possible options:

  • “Quando il Parma giocherà, un solo grido si alzerà” on a blue background written in gold italics (standard match shirt), on a pink background written in blue italics (goalkeeper jersey)
  • “Siam sempre qui, insieme a te, con i gialloblù combatterem” on a blue background written in gold italics (standard match shirt), on a pink background written in blue italics (goalkeeper jersey)
  • “I colori gialloblù, che vedi su quella maglia, vinceran la Coppa Italia” in gold italics (standard match shirt), on a pink background written in blue italics (goalkeeper jersey). The writing will be finished off with an outline image of the Coppa Italia  in gold on a blue base (standard match shirt) or in blue on a pink base(goalkeeper jersey).

Fans will be able to decide if they want to insert a special embroidery dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the 2002 Coppa Italia win.
