Club Ciudad de Bolivar, from the town of San Carlos de Bolivar, southwest of Buenos Aires, are making their second FIVB Volleyball Men’s Club World Championship appearance, after finishing fourth in 2010 in Doha.
Since their foundation in 2007, Bolivar have won the national title in Argentina five times - although they have been on a dry spell since 2010.
That same year they also won their sole South American Club Championship title, which they hosted at home.
In the 2015-16 Argentina League season Bolivar finished runners-up to UPCN San Juan after losing the last match in the best-of-five playoffs final series in four sets. Previously they had lost to UPCN in straight sets in the bronze medal of the South American Club Championship.
