All other participants of the 2016/17 CEV Champions League Final Four have 3 titles altogether... At the same time, Dinamo Moscow have 11 Champions League trophies in their cupboard!


 

Dinamo Moscow is the most successful women's volleyball club in Europe. It is that simple. This team have won 11 Champions League trophies (competition record) and 18 national titles in Russia, counting the USSR era.

Dinamo Moscow have established quite a domination in European volleyball back in the 60s and 70s. They won all of their 11 Champions League trophies in just 17 years, from 1960 to 1977!

But, then the club faced a tough period. The Russian powerhouse even seized to exist in 1992 and remained in "sleep mode" until 2004 when the club was reestablished. Of course, everyone expected that the European giant will quickly come back to the throne, however Dinamo Moscow haven't succeeded in winning any Champions League title ever since.

They were close in 2007 and 2009, but in both occasions they suffered a tie-break defeat in the competition finals. And both time they were defeated by the Italian team.

Now Dinamo have another chance to break their own record and to win the 12th trophy in the CEV Champions League. But, on that road they will once again play against the Italian team... The Russians will face the hosts of the Final Four Imoco Volley Conegliano already the semi-finals.

Will they now finally manage to get past the Italian team? The competition top scorer Nataliya Goncharova and her teammates firmly believe that they can do that.

TURNAROUND: FIVB awards last wild card for 2017 Club World Championship to Dinamo!

It is all about entrance 'fees': because Moscow has more money than Conegliano and the last couldn't or didn't want to pay those 100.000 US $, Moscow took over. If this is the right way to distribute the (too?) many (4) wildcards, everybody should decide on his own. Reply

BRA W: Skowronska in Brazil!?

She was injured and now somebody is spreading news that she is requested just to get her a better contract somewhere in europe. Fool who gets tricked by this! Reply

ITA W: Another member of Eczacıbaşı line-up going away – Tijana Bošković!?

She will leave because Nesli, even though she has years, must play and she didn't play so much last season. That's the main reason Reply
