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.
Esperance’s championship win is the fourth, after titles
earned in 1994, 1998 and 2000. Their line-up includes seven current national
team players plus Russian Alexander Sorokoletov.
