Who are we? - Chi siamo?

Parma Calcio 1913 is a soccer club located in Northern Italy. Parma as a city is famous for Parmigiano Reggiano and Prosciutto di Parma. As a club, you might know our keeper Gigi Buffon who started his career with us in 1995 and helped us win the Coppa Italia. Now Gigi is back and we are proud to have one of the best keepers in the world call our club home once again. 

We believe soccer (calcio) creates communities. At our camps, players learn skills for life on and off the field.

Parma Calcio Academy aims to share the club’s philosophy and values around the world. We’ve hosted camps and clinics in countries including Japan, Australia, Germany and now the United States. With so many Italian Americans based in New York, choosing Manhattan just felt right. 

Parma Academy offers athletes, coaches and fans new opportunities to have fun and grow within the sport of soccer. Learn more about the history of our club by clicking here. 

Stay tuned for Parma Calcio US Academy updates as we plan to expand each year leading up to the 2026 World Cup.
