Team profile

ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle

ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle play in their first ever FIVB Men’s Club World Championship after winning the national title in Poland which gave them an automatic berth as hosts. It was their seventh overall and second straight Polish championship.
Internationally, Kedzierzyn-Kozle have won a bronze in the 2003 European Championship League after losing to Italy’s Kerakoll Modena in the semifinals and then beating France’s Paris Volley. They have also picked up a bronze in 2000 and silver in 2011 in the CEV Cup.
The origins of the club date back to 1947 and it is based in the town of Kedzierzyn-Kozle, historically closely tied to the chemical industries for which the area is well known. Opole, their venue for pool play at the 2017 FIVB Men’s Club World Championship, is about 50 kilometres to the north.

Andrea Gardini

After helping Italy win two Olympic medals (silver in Atlanta 1996 and bronze in Sydney 2000) in addition to three FIVB World Championship titles (1990, 1994, 1998), the 52-year-old middle blocker turned to coaching, starting as assistant coach with the Polish National Team.
He has never played outside of Italy, but he also has four European Champions Cup titles to his name – two each with Il Messaggero Ravenna and Sisley Treviso. 
He was head coach of Indykpol AZS Olszty for three seasons, before moving this year to ZAKSA Kedzierzyn-Kozle.
