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.  


Find out some facts about VakıfBank İstanbul and about Eczacıbaşı VitrA İstanbul, who will face each other in the first semifinal.

Mia Jerkov for WoV - "I am still evaluating my offers"

Re: @rivers
Actually, you are wrong. It was known that Kim would leave FB after they finished the league at the first place. I remembered her statements after the final matches, she gave speeches about her leaving. It was not a last moment decision and Jerkov signed with FB in the summer season, so it was a planned transfer. Jerkov came to FB because, unsuccessful jan de brant and jerkov had played together in Bursa for two seasons. He thought that she could be successful at this level because he doesnt know anything about volleyball and we have seen the result! There were plenty of turkish players who were at the same level with jerkov but she was chosen instead of these girls because unsuccesful jan de brant wished that she would manage at this level. Do you understand better now!? Reply

POL W: Poland without Wolosz in VNL

Re: @Michelea. Dani Lins with the best reception in the world couldn't even help Brazil out of the china quarterfinal. LMAO. She's an overrated setter. No one would sign her in Europe. A true definition of local. Wolosz is better than her and Roberta is the best brazilian setter of the present.
