Parma, 24 November 2023 - 'International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women' is on Saturday 25 November. In a period in which this tragic phenomenon is on the rise, as sadly seen by the passing of Giulia Cecchettin, a woman of just 22 years of age, Parma Calcio would like to express its strong will and desire to support those who, on Saturday 25 November, will participate in the procession-demonstration, organized by Parma Council, the Anti-Violence Centre of Parma, the Casa delle Donne and secondary schools in the city, which will start at 10.30 CET from Palazzo Ducale and end in Piazza Garibaldi.

On Saturday morning, Parma Calcio managers, employees, members and collaborators, on a voluntary basis, will also be present and who want to make their voices heard in support of women, on a march intended to promote an increasingly stronger sense of community and hold a united stance in tackling violence against women. A walk that for Parma Calcio will continue up to the stadio Ennio Tardini, where Parma vs. Modena kicks off at 14:00 CET.


Before kick-off, there are many activities that Parma Calcio want to carry out. One in particular is represented by the 'red ball', the official match ball of Lega Serie B, on which captain Enrico Delprato wanted to share a thought together with all his teammates. In addition to the hashtag #ENOUGH!, the signatures of the Men's First Team players will be on the ball, which will then be delivered by Delprato, before the start of the match, to the representatives of the 'Maschi che si immischiano' association, which has been committed for years to raising awareness and making men responsible on this issue. To give an increasingly timely message: it is the male world that must become aware and take strong positions.

Parma Calcio invites all fans present at the stadium for the match against Modena to show up with a red mark on their faces, to strongly demonstrate their support in tacking violence against women and to continue in a united direction for our community.

The message that Parma high school students present at the march will send is a beautiful one: they will display a banner at the Stadio Tardini during the match. Together with them, our Parma Academy kids will also show up with a red symbol on their faces.

But the will of our Club is to continue to give life to this campaign and, in the next few weeks, a charity auction will be activated in favour of the Parma Anti-Violence Centre to which the proceeds from the matchworn shirts that will be played in, with the special patch, will go to.


During the press conference ahead of Parma vs. Modena, in the press room at the Mutti Training Center in Collecchio, Fabio Pecchia signed the red ball, testifying the coach's and technical staff's solidarity to the causef: 'Our participation as a Club on this global day for such a sad issue means we need to raise awareness of everyone's conscience, but I believe that this must be carried out by each of us on a daily basis, without delegating to the government or schools. Each one of us in our own field must raise awareness of this topic because it creates moments of unprecedented sadness, so I hope that everyone can truly take on this task with great responsibility'.
