Brazil national team outside hitter Natália Zilio will return to play in Turkey after a year as she defended the colors of Fenerbahçe Opet from 2016 to 2018, winning the championship title one time. Thus, the transfer that we announced earlier became official. A 30-year-old Natália, the 2012 London Olympic Games winner, came to Eczacıbaşı after conquering the Brazilian Superliga with Itambé/Minas.
The Turkish silver medalists have made another transfer hit – they tied the setter Carli Lloyd. Interestingly, a 29-year-old American battled with Natália in the playoff finals last season as she wore the jersey of Dentil/Praia Clube. Lloyd joined Eczacıbaşı having a huge international experience. She was named Best Setter of the CEV Champions League and FIVB Club World Championship once each.
Earlier, Eczacıbaşı parted ways with their captain Jordan Larson, outside hitters Meliha İsmailoğlu and Güldeniz Önal, libero Dilara Bağcı, opposite hitter Gözde Yılmaz, and middle blocker Büşra Kılıçlı. They brought four players back from loans and signed opposite hitter Melis Durul from Çanakkale Belediyespor.
