After crashing out in the semi-finals in 2013, Italian
heavyweight Trentino is looking to return to winning ways at the FIVB Men’s
Club World Championship in Belo Horizonte.
Trentino won four successive FIVB Volleyball Men’s
Club World Championship titles between 2009 and 2012, before finishing third
last year in Betim.
Trentino missed out on qualifying for the FIVB
Volleyball Men's Club World Championship this year after being knocked out in
the European Champions League quarterfinals. The three-time European champions
also failed to defend their Italian League title after losing out in the
quarterfinals last month to Modena.
The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) and the organisers of the FIVB
Volleyball Men’s Club World Championship Belo Horizonte 2014 decided, however,
to award one of this year’s competition’s two wild cards to Trentino.
