VakıfBank takes the stage on World Championship

VakifBank Women's Volleyball Team takes the stage in the FIVB Clubs World Championship in Shaoxing, China to be the world leader for the second consecutive and third time in total. The team will compete in Group A with Zhejiang (China), Volero Le Cannet (France) and Minas Tenis Clube (Brazil), and will face Zhejiang in its first match at TSI 15:00 tomorrow.

We are going to play our best game

VakifBank head coach Giovanni Guidetti said, “After a long journey, we did our work here. We came here by playing three games in six days. We are fighting at a very intense pace but as VakifBank we are used to it. We work with the awareness of this. We are ready for the World Championship as a team. I am sure we will have one of our best tournaments here. There are strong teams in the tournament; we will not play easy matches here. But we are VakifBank and are aware of our strength. We are physically and mentally ready for the championship”.

We want to be the biggest for the third time

VakifBank Captain Melis Gurkaynak said, '' We came here after a very intense match program. We played matches in a row and completed them without loss. We started the season very well as a team. After the matches we won in the league and in Europe, we are now in China for the World Championship. As VakifBank, we want to be the biggest team in the world for the third time. As a team, we have completely concentrated on this. Chinese people like volleyball. We have a big audience here and we are very happy because of the interest shown to us. We are waiting for our fans to the games ahead”.
