Another dream has come true for both Turkish team Eczacıbaşı VitrA and Turkish volleyball. Eczacıbaşı VitrA won the FIVB Volleyball Women's Club World Championship in Zurich to follow their gold medal in the women's Champions League.
Turkish volleyball is enjoying something of a golden era after winning three worldwide championships in the last six seasons. Eczacıbaşı VitrA beat Russian side Dinamo Krasnodar 3-1 to win the final game of the FIVB Volleyball Women's Club World Championship Zurich 2015 on Sunday. On April 5, they also won the long-anticipated gold in the women's Champions League. The players, under Italian head coach Giovanni Caprara, shut out the Italian team Unendo Yamamay 3:0 (25-22, 25-20, 25-21) in the final to triumph in the 2015 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League. Enjoying a magnificent season this year, Eczacıbaşı VitrA have become the third Turkish club to bring home a world title to Turkey. Previously Fenerbahçe had won the FIVB Volleyball Women's Club World Championship in 2010 and Vakıfbank in 2013. Fenerbahçe also came third in 2013 in the tournament and Vakıfbank came second in 2012.
