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.

Organised into a series of league and play-off games, the Cup sees teams take on each other in highly competitive yet good-natured and brotherly games of football until one of them is eventually crowned champion.
