Team profile

SESI-SP was founded in 2009 with the hope of bringing a sense of respect and passion for future volleyball players watching them play and, consequently, the team has helped give Brazilian volleyball a new boost.

The international fame of the young team now comes just as much from their antics on the court as well as their school student fans in the stands. Building on these pillars, the side has gone on to win the 2009 Paulista Championship, the Copa São Paulo three times from 2009-2011, Brazil's 2011 Superleague and the 2011 South American Club Championship.
