List of Parma F.C. seasons

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of seasons played by Parma Football Club, an Italian professional football club currently playing in Serie A based in Parma, Emilia-Romagna. It details Parma's achievements in major competitions, together with the top scorers for each season of their existence up to the most recent completed season. Top scorers in bold were also the top scorers in the English league that season. Parma have never won a domestic league title, but have won three Italian Cups, one Supercoppa Italiana, as well as two UEFA Cups, one European Super Cup and one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. The club won all eight of these trophies between 1992 and 2002, a period in which it is also achieved its best ever league finish as runners-up in the 1996–97 season.

As of June 2014, although Parma had spent just twenty seasons in Serie A, they had amassed the sixteenth most points in the league's history and had the sixth best average points total per season in the division (assuming 3 points for a win throughout its history), whose inception was in 1929.[1] Including the 2014–15 season and since 1929, Parma have spent 24 seasons in the top flight of Italian football, 27 at the second level, 31 at the third and 4 at the fourth.

History[edit]

The club was founded as Parma Foot Ball Club in December 1913.[2] At this time Parma's matches were less well-organised and arranged on a largely ad-hoc basis. Official records from these matches are sketchy at best. The club began playing league football in 1919 and became founder members of Serie B in 1928. The club would then be renamed Associazione Sportiva Parma in 1932. Much of the next few decades was spent in the doldrums; a time which included the absorption of A.C. Parmense and another rename to Associazone Club Parma in 1968 due to financial difficulties.

Easily Parma's most successful period followed promotion to Serie A in 1990 under Nevio Scala.[3] Scala remained at the club until 1996 and won the Crociati's first ever major trophies – securing one Coppa Italia, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Cup and one Supercoppa Italiana win. Four more triumphs – two in the Coppa Italia, one in the UEFA Cup and another in the Supercoppa Italiana – followed before 2002. The club became embroiled in financial disaster after the fraud of the Parmalat and A.C. Parma owners came to a head soon after and no major trophies have been won since. The club was re-founded as Parma Football Club in 2004 and a sale to current owner Tommaso Ghirardi in early 2007.
