Sesi kicked off an impressive comeback on their 2021/22 Men’s Superliga debut, paying Campinas back for losing the recent semi-final of the São Paulo Championship. The rivalry between these two had another exciting chapter which was decided in the tie-break. Sesi ended Campinas’ 11-game run at home, making a turnaround from the final stretch of the fourth set. Sesi were 1-2 behind in sets and 15-20 in the fourth set before extending the game to the tie-break in which they prevailed 15-12. The teenage opposite hitter Darlan Souza from Sesi was the best scorer of the game with 24 points. The 19-year-old player replaced his brother and national team member Alan Souza (who went to Russia’s Kuzbass in the off-season) in the Sesi squad.

In the first match under the command of head coach Filipe Ferraz, the club legend with 11 seasons as a player, Sada Cruzeiro beat Farma Conde Vôlei/São José 3-0 at home. The triumph of the Superliga powerhouse had a special taste since their rivals sensationally eliminated them from the playoff quarter-finals last season. Actually, it is not the same team now. Vôlei Itapetininga was the club that kicked Cruzeiro off the title race in 2020/21, but now they merged into the new project with São José dos Campos.
