Club Voleibol Barcelona also known as CVB Barça is a Spanish women's volleyball club from Barcelona and currently plays in the Spanish Superliga.

History[edit]

The club was founded in 1994, following the folding of RCD Espanyol Volleyball team which happened a year earlier.[1] It reached the first Spanish division for the first time in 1998–99.[1] After an agreement made in 2004, the club was absorbed by FC Barcelona, effectively becoming its volleyball department.[2] After years playing outside the first division the club was promoted to the Spanish Superliga in 2011–12.[1] A third place finish in the 2013–14, allowed the team to participate for the first time of a European competition, the 2014–15 CEV Women's Challenge Cup.
