Volero Zurich host the World Club Championship for a third consecutive time. They will be hoping finally to win a medal in 2015, after they lost the bronze medal match in the previous two editions. In 2014 they were denied a medal by Brazilian side SESI-SP, who won 3-2 despite Kenia Carcaces scoring 22 points for Volero Zurich.
In 2013 the Swiss team lost 3-1 to Guangdong Evergrande in the bronze medal match. At continental level, Volero have competed in seven of the past nine editions of the European Champions League. Their highest finish was in season 2006/07 when, as hosts, they qualified for the Final Four and finished fourth. In the 2015 competition, they failed to qualify for the Final Four after losing a golden set to Turkish side Eczacibasi VitrA in the Playoff 6 round. Coach Dragutin Baltic resigned after that defeat, and was replaced in April 2015 by Dutchman Avital Selinger.
The team will be confident after securing their sixth successive national league title in April 2015, adding the trophy to their Swiss Cornercard Cup victory earlier in the season. The trophies are further symbols of their dominance in Switzerland – as of April 2015 they were unbeaten in more than 110 games in domestic competition.
