If football is a religion for many of its fans, for some of those studying in the seminaries of Vatican City, religion is also football.

The Clericus Cup is an annual five-a-side tournament involving seminarians and priests in the Catholic Church’s equivalent of the Champions League.

The tournament is hotly contested with 16 teams and more than 70 different countries represented.
