Volero ZÜRICH sign Brazilian star setter Fabíola
2016 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League - Women

Zurich, Switzerland, October 30, 2015. Volero ZÜRICH just announced a real ‘coup’ after coming to an agreement with Brazilian national team player Fabíola just four days after Nilay Özdemir’s return to Eczacibasi VitrA ISTANBUL.

There were rumours circulating across the stands of the Saalsporthalle in Zurich before Volero’s 2016 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League season opener on Thursday night. The reason for that is that a definitely not unknown person was seen wearing a purple Volero tracksuit; a true Volleyball heroine that the Volero fans had already seen at the Saalsporthalle during the 2014 and 2015 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championships: star setter Josefa Fabíola Almeida De Sousa Alves, aka Fabíola. The Brazilian Volleyball star returned to the Saalsporthalle after having won silver with Russia’s Dinamo KRASNODAR at the same venue just five months ago.

Nevertheless, this return to Zurich was a special one as the exceptionally skilled setter of the Brazilian national team proudly announced that she had just signed a contract with multiple Swiss champs Volero ZÜRICH: “I’m glad to be a part of this top squad. I’ve already met the team and have started to train with them. I can’t wait to put on their jersey and step on the court for Volero ZÜRICH,” she said.  

This contract is, without a doubt, humongous for 2015 FIVB Volleyball Women’s Club World Championship bronze medallists Volero ZÜRICH. The 32-year-old from Brasília is considered one of the best setters in women’s Volleyball – and her impressive resume is the proof: Fabíola won gold with Brazilian top side Sollys / Nestlé OSASCO at the Women’s Club World Championship in 2012 as well as a silver medal in 2014. Wearing the jersey of the Brazilian ‘Seleção’, on the other hand, the outstanding setter clinched gold at the FIVB World Grand Prix Finals in Tokyo in 2014 and bronze at the FIVB Volleyball Women’s World Championship in Italy last year.

Volero ZÜRICH president Stav Jacobi is sure: “Volero can count now on an absolute world-class athlete on the setter position. On the one hand, that’s great; on the other, this means that the expectations for the current season are going to be even higher.”

Brazil’s Volleyball star Fabíola looks forward to representing the colours of her Swiss team: “I’m geared up for this new experience. I can’t wait to take on the new challenges awaiting me here in Zurich. I’m poised to hunt for trophies with Volero.”

Fabíola is willing to give her very best for the multiple Swiss champs to make the Final Four in the 2016 CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League: “With Bojana Zivkovic, Volero ZÜRICH can already count on a very strong setter. I think I can do my bit with the international experience I’ve gained with the Brazilian national team and with my previous clubs in Brazil and here in Europe.”

Nevertheless, the Brazilian Volleyball star also looks forward to discovering Zurich also off the court: “I’ve already been various times to Zurich before, but I don’t know the city yet. But I want to make time to know better my new home.”
