Bolivar

Club Ciudad de Bolivar, from the town of San Carlos de Bolivar, southwest of Buenos Aires, are making their third FIVB Volleyball Men’s Club World Championship appearance, after finishing fourth in 2010 in Doha and again last year in Betim.
They joined the 2017 edition as national champions of the top two non-qualified countries in the FIVB World Rankings (the other being Italy’s Cucine Lube Civitanova).
Since their foundation in 2007, Bolivar have won the national title in Argentina six times. This year they ended a dry spell lasting since 2010 after overcoming arch rivals UPCN San Juan in the final series.
In 2010 Bolivar also won their sole South American Club Championship title, when they beat Brazil’s Cimed Florianopolis in the final of the competition which they hosted in Argentina.
This year they settled for silver – their second medal in the history of the South American Club Championship – after losing to Brazil’s Sada Cruzeiro in straight sets in the final in Betim.
