2012 Vatican Cup

Fortitudo 2007 have won the 2012 Coppa Vaticano. The competition has been renamed the Coppa Sergo Valci Stagione in memory of Dr Sergio Valci, the Septagenarian head of the Vatican Football Assoicatio, who passed away this Autumn.

Fortitudo 2007 (pictured above) only just squeezed into the semi-finals of the competition after finishing in fourth place in the five team group stage qualifiers with just one victory in four games.

In the two-legged semi-finals, Fortitudo 2007 faced New Hermes, a team representing the librarians in the Holy See that had won the group stage. 

Fortitudo thrashed New Hermes 4-1 on aggregate to set up a final with Pantheon 2007, who had finished second in the group stage and qualified for the final after beating telecoms team Dirseco on away goals. Neither Fortitudo 2007 nor Pantheon SD could find the net in the final. The game went to penalties with Fortitudo 2007 winning 4-3. Fortituido's striker
Fabrizio Gaudio finished the tournament as top scorer.
