Parma have officially regained the trophies which were up for auction after the old club’s bankruptcy.
Parma FC were declared bankrupt at the end of last season, and were forced to begin again in Serie D - the highest amateur League - as Parma Calcio 1913.
Following the insolvency, the club’s assets were put up for sale, including the trophies won, which included the UEFA Cup and Coppa Italia.
However, it was today been confirmed that Parma have regained the silverware, after an offer was accepted by administrators, with the trophies passing to the new club as the successor to Parma FC.
“Our trophies are back where they belong,” general manager Luca Carra announced on the club’s website.
“Because of our membership in Serie D, Parma Calcio 1913 have already been recognised by the Federation as the legitimate sporting heir of AC Parma and Parma FC.
“The national and European trophies won by Parma are now available to the club again, we have acquired the trophies symbolic of a history that no bankruptcy can ever erase, and which no-one can ever take away from Parma Calcio and our fans.”
