Parma dominating Serie D

Published Add your comment

Have you wondered what's happened to Parma ever since they declared bankruptcy? Well wonder no more.

The historic football club had a season to forget last year, on-and-off the pitch, but it seems like they've finally got themselves sorted and they are enjoying football again.

Parma Fall From Grace

It's been well documented about the struggles of Parma throughout the last two seasons, from finishing fifth in Serie A, to being declared bankrupt and dropped down leagues to Serie D.

Financial issues cost them massively and with debts going over £100million, they had no other choice but to declare bankruptcy and start from the bottom.

Throughout the 2014/2015 campaign, they had numerous owners, but they all let the club down and failed to pay off the massive debts that were mounting. They had to forfeit games because they couldn't afford to get to games or host games, and eventually they were dropped to Serie D.

Serie D Domination

Fast forward a few months and things are looking a bit more rosy for the club.

Yes they're in Serie D, but just like Rangers did in the Scottish league, they are absolutely smashing the league and already look set for a promotion.

They've played 26 games so far this season and are still unbeaten, winning 19 and drawing seven. They've scored 59 goals and conceded just 11.

Parma sit on 64 points and are top of the league by nine, leading Forli who are on 55 points.

The Italian club has enjoyed a sensational season on the pitch and are slowly rebuilding the damage that was caused during the past two years.


It's a long journey ahead for Parma, but they have started things well and they look all-but certain to earn promotion to Serie C.

Hopefully for the club they can be back in Serie A in no time. They deserve to be given their rich history.
