Football: GFA and Man UTD to play SV Vollmond from Switzerland

Gibraltar's Football Association (GFA) will be playing SV Vollmond, from Switzerland, on the 4th of November at the Victoria Stadium. The visitors will then play Manchester United on the 6th of Novemeber.

SV Vollmond are famous for playing against some rather odd opposition, most recently having played against the volcanic island of Montserrat.The Vatican City recently played a match against SV Vollmond, on a small field just outside of the Vatican; the Vatican City prevailed 5-1.

The Vatican City National Football team is the football team that plays for the Vatican City. They are one of only eight fully-recognised sovereign states whose national team is not a FIFA member. Others are Monaco, Montenegro, Tuvalu, Kiribati, Micronesia, Nauru, Marshall Islands and Palau.

Vatican City have played only two games against international teams, both ending in 0-0 draws. The first game was against San Marino in 1994, and the second game was against Monaco on November 23, 2002 in Italy.

The Vatican City squad consists of the Swiss Guards (voluntary military force drawn from male Swiss citizens), members of the Papal council and museum guards (Italian citizens). Since only members of the Swiss Guard can get the citizenship of the Vatican and they cannot be amassed in large numbers for a long time, the national team can play only a few rare international matches often drawing a fair amount of interested press.
