Bangkok Glass will be making their debut appearance in an FIVB Volleyball Club World Championship in 2016.
The club was set up in 2014 and since has won the Thailand League twice, in addition to two Thai-Denmark Super League titles.
Bangkok Glass took part in the 2015 Asian Club Championship in Vietnam and won their first international title overwhelming Japan’s Hisamitsu Springs in five sets in the final. Their star middle blocker Pleumjit Thinkaow picked up the event’s MVP award.
In the 2016 edition of the continental competition, held in Bunyan in the Philippines, Bangkok Glass fell to Japan’s NEC Red Rockets of Kawasaki in five sets in the semifinals, but claimed the bronze with a thrilling five-set comeback win over Kazakhstan’s Altay Oskmen.
Middle blocker Thinkaow has also led the Thai national team to glory in international tournaments and has become the idol of millions of young volleyball players.
Youngsters Pornpun Guedpard and Jarasporn Bundasak are two of the most promising prospects in Thai volleyball and have already made themselves a name in the senior national team over the last two years.
