Clericus Cup IV – 65 countries

Centro Sportivo Italiano, the organizer for Clericus Cup IV, released some stats for the tournament. The sixteen teams have submitted rosters that include 373 players representing 65 countries. The countries producing the most players for the league? Mexico with 49, Italy with 45, Brazil with 24, and the United States with 21. The season will kick off this weekend and wrap up on April 25, with the championship scheduled for May 22.

Participating in the events kicking off the season was Giovanni Trappantoni, who coached Juventus in the 1980s, as well as doing stints for Inter and Bayern Munich.  Currently the coach for Ireland’s national team, Trappantoni said he’d love to coach a Vatican World Cup football team.  Since the Vatican is not (yet) part of FIFA, that dream is still a few decades off.
