|Conquest of the first
Champions League cup
The city was absolutely volleyball crazy. Lines of cars went around the city reaching Piazza Duomo where the celebrations took place. Season 2008/09 started with a goodbye to Nikolov, one of the main players of the championship, who was replaced by the Brazilian Vissotto. The season was influenced by the early elimination at the quarter finals of the Italian cup against Sisley Treviso but was still unforgettable thanks to the victory in the Champions League, with twelve victories out of fourteen games.
