EMS Taubaté Funvic are crowned Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship winners for the first time ever!


The players of the third seed EMS Taubaté Funvic coped well with the pressure of a decisive Game 5 of the Superliga Cimed 2018-2019 playoff finals against the top seed SESI-SP. In the packed Arena Suzano, a neutral ground that was chosen for the last three games of the finals and whose stands were filled with the fans of both sides but with SESI being official hosts, Taubaté prevailed in four sets, partially 25-21, 25-22, 21-25 and 25-20.

Thus, the team that from the São Paulo state, who was always among the title favorites since 2013 when Funvic entered the club as the main sponsor, won its first-ever national title while playing its second playoff finals (2016/17, 2018/19). 

Ricardo Lucarelli was named MVP of the championship, while Leandro Vissotto was recognized MVP of the Finals.

OQT M: Party in Bari - Italy wreck Serbia to punch last Tokyo ticket from International Qualifier

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
