Palermo's project for the New Sports Center can finally start. The municipality of Torretta, having gathered the last external opinions from all the institutions, through a service conference made in the last few months, has given the permission to build the new "home" from Palermo in the area already chosen, next to the city field.

Last April 27th, the definitive project of the new sports center of Palermo was officially registered in the city of Torretta, in accordance with the prescription rules and in conjunction with the indications taken by Coni and the Institute of Sports Credit. Today, thanks to the intense collaboration between all the subjects interested in the procedure, the creation of the building has officially been given the green light.

In the first stage, next to the city field which has already been given the management to Palermo FC, and whose restoration is already being made by the municipality of Torretta, other two full-sized football fields will arise, one with synthetic grass and another one with natural grass. Near the three fields, a new big building will be built, which will have a gym with cutting edge equipment, dressing rooms for the first team and the Spring, conference room, and other technical spaces useful for the correct development of sports activities. The main house which is already present in the area, thanks to some restoration work, will become the new club house of Palermo, with relax rooms and comfort spaces, apart from a fully equipped restaurant for the first team's meals. There will also be a spacious parking place for coaches and private cars, paddle tennis courts open for public, and big fields of olive trees and local vegetation.

The last step to give the definitive green light is the activation of the credit lines and guarantees from the Institute of Sports Credit and Irfis, involved in the project since the beginning. Working for them for more than a year is a team of palermitan architects, engineers, and geologists, apart from a long cast of professionals and collaborators who have allowed the achievement of this objective thanks to their hard work and competences.

"To all of them, the prefect of Palermo Giuseppe Forlani, the prefectural commission of the municipality of Torretta, and all the municipal technical offices coordinated by the architect Musarra, we thank you", said president Dario Mirri. "It's the dream of every fan come true. The Sports Center of Palermo FC is a decisive asset for the future of our Palermo, and will be a guarantee for business continuity and sports achievements, founded in solid and lasting grounds. Maybe we will see young palermitans arising with our t-shirt soon, thanks to a place dedicated to grow talents. An investment which is traduced not only in bigger club solidity, reinforcing its infrastructure, but also in a better performace from the squad, in sports terms".

The fans will be soon involved in choosing the name of the new "rosanero house", though a poll in the digital channels of Palermo. But it will also be possible to actively participate in the building investment: a share of the social funds gathered to finance the work will be accessible through social participation, starting from the Amici Rosanero Association, which entered as a partner in 2019, gathering a sum of money dedicated precisely to the birth of the Sports Center.
