HistoryEdit

Established in 1973 as VBC Voléro Zürich, the early success came from the men's team which won a national championship in 1977 and two national cups (in 1975 and 1978).[2]

From the late 1990s, the women's team started to progress in the national leagues arriving at the National League A (NLA), but after just a couple seasons, due to financial reasons, the club was relegated. In 2003, part of the club (female elite squad and more than 120 young volleyball talents) was professionalized by founding the independent Volero Zürich AG, and the rest of the club remained as VBC Voléro Zürich (male and youth teams).[2][3] Soon after the women's team started dominating the national league and cup, winning each on 12 occasions.[4][5] The national success allowed the club to take part in European competitions, playing the Women's CEV Cup twice (in 2005–06 and 2009–10) and the CEV Women's Champions League over ten times with a best result of fourth place in 2006–07.[6][7] The club also participated in multiple editions of the FIVB Volleyball Women's Club World Championship finishing third place in 2015 and 2017.[8] The club has won the Women's Top Volley International (a minor international tournament) twice, in 2007 and in 2010.[9]
