AFTER THE VERY SUCCESSFUL START LAST YEAR IN GERMANY WITH MORE THAN 150 PLAYERS IN ONE WEEK, THE VISIT OF PARMA`S SISTER CITY WORMS, MORE THAN 150K REACHED PEOPLE VIA DIFFERENT MEDIA CHANNELS, PARMA CALCIO WAS BACK IN SOUTHERN GERMANY WITH ANOTHER EXPERIENCE WEEK.
The program was full packed with different activites. Marco Garilli, Technical Director of Italy Project and Territory Project of Parma Calcio 1913 trained in the evening several local German U6-U15 Teams with total 83 kids. Beside these fantastic and very funny sessions he coached also another 57 kids from the primary school of St.Martin (a small german town in the region Rhineland-Palatinate). The kids from the first to the fourth grade experienced therefore a very special and unique start to the new school year.
With a digital Q&A with Mattia Notari the more than 30 kids enjoyed another very unique opportunity. At the end of a very succesful week Garilli visited also the City of Worms and the Club Wormatia again. After an official small reception in the city hall with a welcome by Lord Mayor Adolf Kessel and the head of the school and sports department Timo Horst, there was a very good exchange about potential joint activities in the future. The week was again accompanied by numerous different media station, e.g.the biggest newspaper of the region „Rheinpfalz“.
"We would like to thank our local partner Schächter Sports GmbH and Dietmar Stöckle," concludes Gioele Caravello, "for giving us the opportunity to expand this project to another level and give so many local German kids and other stakeholders the opportunity to get in touch with Parma Calcio“. Thanks also to our local German club Partner of the week TuS St.Martin for the great organisation.
„We have had a very successful week and the feedback from everyone is super positiv. With our unique program, we have created many touchpoints for the club and exciting opportunities have arisen“ , said Sebastian Schaechter, CEO of Schaechter Sports.
