More than 350 seminarians and priests from 71 countries are competing in the annual Rome Clericus Cup soccer tournament.
The spring tourney will feature 16 teams from pontifical universities, seminaries and religious orders vying for a trophy of a cleat-wearing soccer ball sporting a wide-brimmed clerical hat known as a saturno.
The Pontifical North American College, the U.S. seminary in Rome, placed fourth in 2011.
The team  includes New York archdiocesan seminarian Mark Paver, a native of Manchester, England, who has had some semipro soccer experience.
