Parma mark Serie A return with stunning new kit that sells out in 24 hours

Parma celebrated their fairytale promotion back to Serie A with the release of a new third kit which has gripped fans to such an extent that the club sold of shirts within the first 24 hours.

The club, whose iconic players such as Gianluigi Buffon, Lilian Thuram, Fabio Cannavaro, Hernan Crespo and Faustino Asprilla, from the 1990s hold fond memories for many football fans, were declared bankrupt in 2015 and a phoenix club named Parma Calcio 1913 was reborn, which started again in Serie D. Incredibly, they achieved three successive promotions and will be in the top flight next season.

And the buzz surrounded the club's rise is growing with huge excitement over the release of their stunning third shirt which is dark with a cross down the middle, surrounded by its traditional yellow and blue trimming.

Kit-makers Errea explained: "Parma's new third kit is a never-seen-before combination of boldness and tradition: a charcoal grey background enriched by the dynamic, central cross in blue and yellow, with a nod to the history of the club on the shoulders."

Now we just need more teams in Serie A to play in yellow and blue so that Parma can wear their third shirt as often as possible.
