The Serie B club Parma Calcio 1913 is going to start work on their new stadium in 2025. A temporary venue will house the Serie B club during the construction period of their new home.

‘GAZZETTA DI PARMA’ stated that the stadium will be an inclusive, innovative, sustainable, and multifunctional space. The ambitious plan aims to give the Ennio Tardini Stadium a complete facelift.

The Parma Calcio 1913, commonly known as Parma, is an Italian professional football club based in Parma, Emilia-Romagna (Italy), which competes in the Serie B, the second tier of Italian football. The Parma Football Club was originally founded in December 1913, while the current society dates back to 2015.

The 22,352-capacity Ennio Tardini Stadium is a football stadium in Parma, Italy, located near the center of Parma, between the town center and the City walls. It is the home of Parma Calcio 1913. The stadium was built in 1923 and was named after one of Parma’s former Presidents, Ennio Tardini.

‘GAZZETTA DI PARMA’ further stated that the scheme of things include demolishing and rebuilding the Enno Tardini Stadium and building the facility to the highest international standards. The redevelopment is part of a wider plan to internationalize and enhance the entire City.

The Parma Calcio presented in September last year final stadium development plans to the Parma City Council with the objective of building an arena which can accommodate 21,000 spectators. The stadium project price tag stands at €140m (£119.4m/$151.5m) and the bill will be foot entirely by the club. The club is presently on the top-of-the-pile in Serie B and is pulling out all stops to be back in Serie A, the top of the Italian football league system.

To facilitate the return of the club to Serie A, it is being envisioned that Parma remains in the Ennio Tardini Stadium for the 2024-2025 seasons.

Luca Martines, Parma Calcio’s Corporate Managing Director, referring to the club’s promotion bid and the project timetable, averred, “I believe that the best thing, if it goes as we all hope, is for Parma to play the next championship at the Tardini.”

Martines also informed that the temporary arena will boast a capacity of 16,000 and will be fully funded by the club while their home venue is demolished and lent a totally new look. When Parma moves into their brand-new home stadium, the temporary home would be made available to the local sports clubs.
There will be a 500 square meter reduction in the proposed surface area for commercial activities.

The Milan-based design firm Studio Zoppini was entrusted with the task of redesigning the stadium in February 2021.

Milan (Italy)-based Studio Zoppini is an architecture firm that was founded in 1961 by Pino Zoppini. They specialize in the design of public sports facilities, urban planning, landscape design, and advanced and complex large-scale buildings. Their vision is to develop technologically advanced buildings that can be adapted to future uses and functions.
