Croatian nuns buy shares in football club
Comment Email Print
 A group of Benedictine nuns has bought shares in a leading Croatian soccer club, according to reports in the Vecherniy List newspaper.

The 19 sisters, from a convent located some 150 km away from the coastal city of Zadar, bought 50 shares worth around $4,500 in Hajduk Split, the nine times champions of Croatia.

The club recently became a shareholder company. The purchase made the nuns one of the club's top 20 shareholders.

"Our mother superior told us that we had become owners of Hajduk shares, but I know hardly anything about this," a spokeswoman said.

She said the sisters usually "pray for the Croatian national soccer side." although one of them know much about football.
