Rio de Janeiro Volei Clube will be competing in an FIVB Volleyball Club World Championship for the third time in the history of the event, after claiming a silver medal in 2013 (after a straight-set defeat to Turkey’s VakifBank Istanbul) and finishing fourth in 2015 - both events were held in Zurich.

The team features Gabi Guimaraes and Juciely Silva from the Brazil side at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, plus two-time Olympic gold medallist libero Fabi Oliveira. The team was reinforced this season with the addition of Anne Buijs, who helped the Netherlands to fourth place at Rio 2016. 

The players are led by coach Bernardo ‘Bernardinho’ Rezende, who guided the men’s team of Brazil to gold at Rio 2016.

Rio de Janeiro Volei Clube was founded in 1997 in Curitiba, before moving to Rio in 2003. They have won the Brazilian Superliga title 11 times, including the last four editions in a row. They are also the reigning South American champions, having won the continental club title a total of three times, in 2013, 2015 and 2016.
