Team profile

Founded in 1993, the Sollys Osasco is one of the most successful and famous Volleyball teams in Brazil. The club has won four editions of the Superliga – the most important national tournament - and two South American Championships.


Several legends of international Volleyball have worn the club's jersey including Isabel Salgado, Virna Dias, Fernanda Venturini, Marcia Fu, Ida, Ana Moser, Paula Pequeno, Mari and the Peruvian Rosa Garcia, among others.

 

Sollys Osasco`s successful history on the international scene started in its second year of existence, in 1994, when the club finished third at the FIVB Club World Championship, played in the city of Osasco.

 

In the same season the team won the Sao Paulo State Championship, the Brazilian Cup and the South Cup. In the years following, the club developed a program to find new players talents such as Fernanda Doval, Andreia Teixeira and Patricia Cocco.

 

The 2000's were the golden decade for the club, achieving its most important results in major competitions. With Jose Roberto Guimaraes at the helm and players like Virna, Valeskinha and Arlene, the club won the Brazilian Superliga for the first time in the season 2002/2003.

 

In the 2003/2004 season, the team relied on the power of six Brazilian representatives at the Athens Olympic Games to win the Superliga again: Fernanda Venturini, Mari, Érika, Bia, Arlene and Valeskinha.


In 2004/2005, with the same squad and the return of Paula Pequeno, who missed the Olympics due to a knee injury, Sollys Osasco won the Superliga for the third time in a row with a 21-3 win record.


The next five seasons saw Sollys Osasco advance to the final match of the Superliga however they always came up short to rivals Rexona-Ades, who conquered five straight titles of the competition.

 

Sollys Osasco returned to the top spot of the podium in 2009/2010, after winning the South American Championship 2009. Led by Luizomar de Moura and counting on four Olympic champions in its squad – Carol, Sassa, Thaisa and Jaqueline - as well as young players such as – Natalia, Adenizia, Camila Brait and Ana Tiemi - the team ended their rival's supremacy and won the Superliga for the fourth time.

 

In 2010, Sollys Osasco won the South American Championship again and qualified for the World Club Championship.
