"Parma is confident that it will obtain the UEFA licence," Parma sporting and managing director Pietro Leonardi said on the club’s official website.
"We will have to appeal to the high court of CONI (Italian Olympic Committee). But I am calm."
Parma have already had their UEFA license twice rejected by the Italian football bosses due to a dispute over income tax on their contracted players that have played on loan at other clubs this season.
