Soccer in Sicily: Palermo FC Stadium Experience
Watch a Palermo FC soccer match at the Renzo Barbera stadium in Palermo, Sicily’s capital. You’ll be accompanied by Marco, a faithful Palermitan supporter, who will help you make the most of this truly local sports experience!
The Rosanero “Initiation”
Before entering the stadium, all non-Palermitan participants will receive a special welcome: the Rosanero Initiation. At the so-called village - the food and beverage area situated beside the stadium - you will be introduced to the ways of the real Palermitan supporters. You’ll be invited to learn the Palermo slogan: “Palermo è la mia vita, Rosanero il mio color” (which translates to “Palermo is my life, pink-black my color”).
The Rosanero Initiation will be celebrated with a sandwich and a drink offered by Marco. Marco will also give you, the newly minted Palermo supporter, a Palermo FC scarf and the “Forza Palermo” book. The “Forza Palermo” book contains the history of the Palermo FC, lyrics for supporters' anthems and basic stadium vocabulary.
Inside the stadium
You will watch the match from the Curva, the ultras section, where the most passionate Palermo fans sing and shout for 90 minutes in support of their team. You’ll be able to sing along by following the lyrics in the “Forza Palermo” book.
