Overview

Team profile

Zenit Kazan

With a record four European Champions League titles under their belt (including the last two editions) Zenit Kazan are the powerhouse of European club volleyball.
The FIVB Volleyball Men’s Club World Championship title still eludes the Russian side, however, after finishing third in 2009 and 2011, losing the bronze medal match in 2012 and going down to Brazil’s Sada Cruzeiro of Contagem in last year’s final.
The club was founded in 2000 under the Dinamo banner in the capital city of the Republic of Tatarstan.
They have won the Russian league title a total of eight times, including the last three running.
Their 2015-16 season was a huge success, as they picked up all three domestic titles (League, Cup and Supercup) and then went on to beat Italy’s Trentino Diatec in five sets in the European Champions League final.
