Parma line up pre-season dates

Parma have confirmed a trio of friendlies for this summer, including two during a week-long stay in Prague.

The Ducali will spend July 31 to August 5 in the Czech Republic capital as part of their pre-season strategy, and have confirmed games with Bohemians 1905 on August 1 and against Loko Vltavin on August 4.

Upon return to Italy, Roberto Donadoni’s men have announced an agreed fixture at the Stadio Ennio Tardini with Real Sociedad for August 8.

Managing director Corrado Di Taranto has also confirmed that the club are in talks to take part in Genoa’s annual pre-season triangular tournament, the Trofeo Spagnolo, which will be held at Marassi on August 14.

Named after Vincenzo Spagnolo, a Genoa fan killed in clashes during a 1995 League match with Milan, the tournament sees three sides compete in three consecutive 45-minute long halves, in an identical set-up to the Trofeo TIM that pits Milan, Inter and Juventus against each other each pre-season.
