Parma Calcio Success – Demise - Success
Parma Calcio 1913 has a long and storied history. The clubs most successful period was the decade between 1992 – 2002. During this time they secured a their highest ever Serie A finish, runner-up in the 96/97 season, lifted eight trophies as follows:
- Coppa Italia: 1991/92; 1998/99; 2001/02
- Supercoppa Italiana: 1999
- UEFA Cup: 1994/95; 1998/99
- European Cup Winners’ Cup: 1992/93
- European Super Cup: 1993
As can be seen from this varied list of honours, spread through both domestic and European competition Parma Calcio was a football club to be feared. The Parma football shirt was revered and honoured by fans and foes alike.
However, in 2003 the club’s fortunes changed. Financial woe and eventual bankruptcy tainted the image and hindered their success. In 2015 Parma Calcio eventually declared bankruptcy. They were re-founded and demoted into the 4th tier of Italian football Serie D.
It seems though that the fortunes of Parma Calcio and their football shirt clad supporters may be on the rise. As of the 2018/19 campaign Parma Calcio are officially back in the top-flight Serie A league. The club has battled their way back securing a record three-successive promotions to confirm their place, and to celebrate we have added the Parma soccer jerseys to our online inventory.
Parma Shirt Design and Manufacture
Over the years the colour scheme of the Parma home jersey has changed several times. Initially the club wore blue and yellow to honour the City of Parma’s colour scheme. Following WWI the team opted to change their colour scheme to white with a large black cross in the centre. In the intervening years the home colour scheme has flitted between blue and yellow or white and black.
During their decade of success, the team primarily wore a blue and yellow home shirt, and this is now synonymous with the team. However, recent events at Parma Calcio have forced the club to re-adopt the white home jersey with black cross on the front. The 2018/19 home shirt is white and you can shop for yours in our online store.
Blue and yellow will always be symbolic for Parma Calcio and as such, if those colours aren’t chosen for the home kit, they are always used for away fixtures. The current kit is designed and manufactured by Errea, who have done a fantastic job with the home, away and third options. Whichever shirt you prefer you can order yours today.
