2008/09 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.
The season ended on 4th April 2009 in Prague during the final against the Greek team Iraklis Salonicco; more than one thousand fans came to the Czech Republic on the occasion. Success at the European level would then lead to many international successes (photo to the left celebrations at the O2 arena in Prague). As regards the championship, the team was successful right to the final when, to its great disappointment, the qualification went to Piacenza that won the fifth and final game at the PalaTrento stadium, once again all sold out and full of fans.
