The idea of Copa Católica began after some talks after watching a game from the famous Clericus Cup, a soccer tournament to priests and seminarians worldwide. This tournament is played on the field of the Oratory of San Pedro, near the impressive dome of St. Peter’s Basilica. Following the motto: “Pope Francis is my captain.”
The Vatican is very interested in the Clericus Cup: in addition to its global influence, the institution thinks that the values of excellence, discipline, effort and teamwork that are associated with football, are very necessary for life in modern society.
So we expect it to be a success.
