Team profile

Founded in 1993, 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 of the South American Championship. The team has also won the Salonpas Cup four times.

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. World-renowned coaches, such as Olympic champions Jose Roberto Guimaraes and Enio Figueiredo, have also taken turns behind the Sollys bench.

In its second year of existence, 1994, Sollys finished third in the Club World Championships. That edition was played in the city of Osasco, where the team would end up moving in 1996. In that same 1994 season, the team won its first three competitions: the Sao Paulo State Championship, the Brazilian Cup and the South Cup. In the following years, the club developed the talent-identifying programme that would find players like Fernanda Doval, Andreia Teixeira and Patricia Cocco.

The 2000s were the golden decade for the club, as in this period Sollys Osasco achieved its best results in major competitions. The club won Brazil’s Superliga for the first time in 2002/2003, then again in 2003/2004 and a third time in 2004/2005. For the following five seasons, Sollys Osasco advanced to every final match of the Superliga but was stopped each time by rival Rexona-Ades before finally returning to the top of the podium in 2009/2010 – winning the 2009 South American Championship along the way.

In 2010, Sollys won the South American Championship again and qualified for the Club World Championships, where they advanced to the final match against Fenerbahce of Turkey and came away with the silver medal.

In the 2010/2011 Superliga, Sollys advanced to the final match against Unilever (their old rival Rexona/Ades) and lost, taking the silver medal. They qualified for the South American Championship, won all their games and went on to take the bronze medal at the 2011 Club World Championships.

Sollys beat Unilever in the final of Superliga 2011/2012 and again won the South American Championship to qualify for the Club World Championships.
