Parma will reform under a new guise in Serie D next season, after receiving confirmation from the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).

FIGC confirmed the club will now operate under Parma Calcio 1913, named after the year of Parma FC's original formation.

Parma was declared bankrupt in March after racking up staggering debts in excess of $330 million.

Ex-coach Nevio Scala, who led the club to the Coppa Italia and UEFA Cup during its glory years of the 1990s, is set to act as the club's president.
