It will be the fourth time in-a-row that the state of Minas Gerais will host the tournament, with Sada Cruzeiro Volei and Vivo / Minas Belo Horizonte partnering to bring the tournament back to the area.

Eight teams will battle for the title of club world champion with hosts Minas Tenis Clube joined by CSV club champions Sada Cruzeiro Volei, CEV Champions League winners Zenit KAZAN of Russia, AVC club champions Taichung Bank Club of Chinese Taipei, CAVB champions Tala’ea El Gaish of Egypt, a NORCECA club yet to be confirmed as well as two wildcards.

I am delighted to see the Men’s Club World Championship return to Betim and Belo Horizonte for another year,” FIVB President Dr Ary S Graça F said and added: “The organisers have had so much experience with this event, putting on a spectacular tournament for the last three years. I have every confidence they will once again deliver an event which underlines volleyball’s positioning as the number 1 family entertainment sport.”

Sada Cruzeiro Volei claimed a second title at last year’s edition to go with the crown they won in 2013, beating Zenit KAZAN in the finals as UPCN San Juan Voley of Argentina claimed bronze.
