The news that Brescia defender Vittorio Mero was killed in a car crash arrived at the Tardini 10 minutes before kick off and with the teams already in the pitch for the warm up. The Brescia officials initially decided to not inform the players of Brescia so game will be held, but Roberto Baggio sensed something was very wrong when he noticed shocked club officials from both teams discussing with referee Treossi. He incquired and when they told him the truth he told his teammates. Referee Treossi along with Lega officials and club captains Antonio Benarrivo and Roberto Baggio took the obvius decision to postpone the game.

Mero was driving with his car to attend the game and was killed at the road which links Brescia with Venezia. He did not travel with the team bus because he was suspended since he had 3 yellow cards.

Here is the official press release of AC Parma.

"Il comunicato ufficiale del Parma A.C.:
A causa della tragica scomparsa del giocatore del Brescia Vittorio Mero deceduto in un incidente stradale questo pomeriggio la gara di Tim Cup Parma-Brescia è stata sospesa a data da destinarsi.
