Nuns of the Order of Saint Benedict in Zadar are among shareholders in recently-privatised football club Hajduk in Split.
They own shares worth 25,000 kunas or around 3,600 Euros, which puts them among the top 20 Hajduk shareholders.
Sister Anselma confirmed to the daily Vecernji List that the nuns had bought shares but did not want to say more.
She said: "Yes, that's true. Our Mother Superior Sister Anastasia told us that we were Hajduk shareholders, but I cannot say anything more. You can speak with our lawyer about that. He knows everything and has even told us to pray for Hajduk."
Sister Anselma also said that sisters of her order did not know much about football but were basketball fans.
She added: "Zadar also has a football club, but we are better in basketball. There are 19 nuns in our convent. Not one sister is from Split, but we all support Hajduk rather than Dinamo Zagreb. However, we do support our national football team."
