Team profile

Esperance of Tunisia earned a ticket to May’s FIVB Club World Championship by claiming the 2014 Men's African Club Championship title with a 3-0 (25-19, 25-20, 25-14) victory over Ahly of Egypt in the competition final at Olympic Hall in Sousse on March 29.

This will be the second time a team from Tunisia participates in the Men’s Club World Championship since the tournament resumed in 2009. Sfax took part in last year’s tournament, which was also held in Brazil.
