Another Brazilian football powerhouse will have its team in the country's Volleyball Championship - São Paulo.


São Paulo Football Club concluded a partnership with the Women’s Volleyball team Hinode Barueri to take part in the Superliga for the 2019/20 season. The creator of the project is current Barueri and Brazil Women head coach José Roberto Guimarães “Zé Roberto“, who will lead the newly formed team with the name São Paulo/Barueri.

Barueri itself is a very young club as it began its activities in October 2016. They won the Silver Cup, the first competition in which they participated, and earned a spot in Division 2 (Superliga B). In April 2017, Barueri climbed another step by clinching the gold medal in Superliga B and thus, progressing to the top division - Superliga. In 2018, they were runners-up of the state championship (Campeonato Paulista). In the last 2 editions of Superliga, Barueri reached the playoff quarterfinals.

As for São Paulo, they had the Men’s Volleyball team once, in the early 2000s, when they partnered with a three-time champions Ulbra and competed in the top division. Also, they concluded a partnership with EMS Taubaté Funvic in April 2015 but it was terminated only six months later.

With São Paulo as Barueri’s partners, 3 football teams will have their branches in the 2019/20 Women’s Superliga. The other two are Fluminense (Fluminense F.C.) and newcomers Flamengo. The Men’s competition will include football branches of Cruzeiro (Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei) and newcomers Botafogo and América-MG, who partnered with Montes Claros Vôlei.

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
