BELGRADE, October 22 (RIA Novosti) - A group of Croatian Benedictine nuns have bought shares in a leading Croatian soccer club, the Vecherniy List paper said on Wednesday.
The 19 nuns, from a convent located some 150 km (93 miles) 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.

Roman Abramovich, who came to public attention in Britain when he bought Chelsea in 2003, made his fortune in post-Soviet Russia. He became involved in oil export deals and in 1995 entered the ranks of the super-rich when with Boris Berezovsky he took over oil company Sibneft for a fraction of its market value. Abramovich gained increasing control over the business and got most of the money when it was sold in 2005 for £7.5bn. More recent acquisitions include stakes in Russian steelmaker Evraz Group and a piece of the UK mining company Highland Gold. Since buying Chelsea, in a deal worth £140m, he is thought to have invested £578m in the club. He has an interest in art and was revealed as the buyer of Lucian Freud’s Benefits Supervisor Sleeping (£17m) and Francis Bacon’s Triptych (£43m). He is 15th in the Forbes rich list, with £14.6bn.
