The Stadio Ennio Tardini is the home of football club Parma Calcio 1913. Named after the former club president Ennio Tardini who instigated the stadium but unfortunately passed away shortly before it opened in September 1923.
The stadium originally featured a cycle track that was converted into a running track in 1935. Capacity was just 13,500 for a long period, before the club’s promotion to Serie A in 1990 required significant renovation. Il Tardini now has a capacity of just under 28,000, although this is often restricted to 22,000.
The stadium has hosted a number of Italy international matches, the first being a 2-0 friendly win over Finland in May 1994.
