Imoco Volley is an Italian women's volleyball club based in Conegliano and currently playing in the Serie A1.

History[edit]

2014-2015 Imoco Volley Conegliano

The club was founded on 15 March 2012, two months after the bankruptcy of Spes Volley the other volleyball team in Conegliano.[1] In April 2012, it acquired a Serie A1 licence from Parma Volley Girls, that meant the club started playing directly at the highest Italian league.[2] It has been playing under the name Imoco Volley Conegliano since its foundation in 2012.

The club won the Serie A1 for the first time in 2015–16, winning the Italian Super Cup a few months later on 8 December 2016.[3]

On 5 March 2017, the club won the Italian Cup for the first time after beating Liu Jo Nordmeccanica Modena 3–0 in the final.[4]
