Viz Media has licensed the manga series for an English speaking audience, releasing the manga chapters as it comes out in Japan on the Shonen Jump and Manga Plus apps. They describe the first volume as such:

Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Research Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object. Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…
