FIVB Volleyball Girls' U18 World Championship

Zurich welcomes the FIVB Women’s Club World Championship


Zurich will become the first Swiss city to host an FIVB volleyball event when it welcomes six of the world’s premier clubs from October 9 to 13, 2013 on the occasion of the annual FIVB Women's Club Championship.

One club from each Confederation as well as host club Volero Zurich will battle it out for honours in the seventh edition one year after Sollys Nestlé of Brazil won their first ever title and third successive medal.

Unilever Volei is the South American representative in 2013 after claiming the South American Women's Club Championship crown in May at the same time as Chinese side Guangdong Evergrande won the Asia title. Turkey’s Vakifbank Istanbul qualified by winning the CEV Volleyball Champions League in March while Kenya Prisons captured their fourth straight African title in April. USA’s Iowa Ice are the fifth Confederation team having been selected as the NORCECA representative.

Unlike the Men’s Club World Championship, the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship has had six different winners from four different countries. Brazil has been represented on the winner’s podium three times, including Sollys Nestle last year, while Azerbaijan, Turkey and Italy have all had clubs step on the top podium once.
