.- Romans will have their soccer appetite whet for the May 27 Champions League final—a match that will pit Manchester United against Barcelona—by Clericus Cup, a soccer tournament between the different groups of seminarians in Rome.

The SIR news agency reported that on Saturday, May 23, at 11 a.m. local time, the North American Martyrs will face off against the Neocatechumenals of the Redemptoris Mater seminary in the final match, organized by the Centro Sportivo Italiano.

This will be the third trip to the finals for the Neocatechumenals, led by Simone Biondi, associate pastor of Holy Mary Queen of the Martyrs in Rome, after they won in 2007 and lost in 2008 against the Mater Ecclesiae team.

On the other hand, the seminarians of the North American Martyrs, led the Australian Gannon “Ball” Jones, will have their chance for revenge, since they lost to Redemptoris Mater in the first annual Clericus Cup. The came in fourth place last year after Ucro, a team made up of Ukrainian and Croat priests and seminarians.
