Team profile

The International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) and the organisers of the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship Zurich 2014 allocated the first of two wild cards for the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship Zurich 2014 to Molico/Osasco of Brazil.

Molico/Osasco, who claimed the 2012 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship title, boast plenty of Brazilian internationals, including Sheilla as captain. She represented her country at both the 2008 and the 2012 Summer Olympic Games where on both occasions the Brazilians were gold medallists. Other names to look out for include Adenizia, Thaisa and Fabiola - also Brazilian internationals - while Italian wing spiker Caterina Bosetti is also in the team line-up.

The four time winners of the South America Women’s Club Championship from 2009 to 2012 have qualified for the FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship three times. Previous results include a third place in 2011 and second place in 2010.
 
Coach profile

Molico/Osasco coach Luizomar de Moura is from the city of Caruaru in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil.

He started his career as assistant coach of Uniban/Sao Caetano in 1995. In the following season he worked in Leites Nestle before arriving in BCN/Osasco, where he stayed for two years.

In 2000/01, Luizomar was invited to be the head coach of Flamengo and won the Brazilian Superliga in his first season with the club. That good result opened the Brazilian national team's doors to Luizomar, and he worked as assistant coach for Marco Aurelio Motta in 2001 and 2002. At the same time he led Automovel Clube de Campos and, later, Oi/Macaé, taking the team to third in the 2005/06 Superliga.

Luizomar then moved to Finasa/Osasco and finished second in the following three seasons. In 2009/10 he led the team to its fourth Superliga title, followed by its fifth in 2011/12. The year 2012 turned out to be very special when he led the team to the FIVB Volleyball Women's Club World Championship title.

Since 2003, Luizomar has also worked with the Brazilian Youth and Junior teams. He has been successful with both, winning Youth World (2005 and 2009), Junior World (2007) and South American Youth and Junior (2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010) Championships.
