Igor Gorgonzola Novara successfully began the title defense campaign in the 2021 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League.


The journey of the titleholders Italy’s Igor Gorgonzola Novara in the new edition of the Women’s Champions League started against Russia’s Dinamo-Ak Bars Kazan.

Belgian Britt Herbots top-scored Novara with 16 points, while Caterina Bosetti had a reception that’s rarely seen on such a high level of competition, of 94 % (31 % excellent).

In Pool C in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, VakifBank İstanbul from Turkey swept Poland’s ŁKS Commercecon Łódź and equaled a record for the number of seasons in the Champions League (19) held by France’s RC Cannes.

American Michelle Bartsch-Hackley led VakifBankin scoring with 14 points, while Brazilian Gabriela Braga Guimarães ’Gabi’ set up 4 blocks.
