Igtisadchi Baku is an Azerbaijani women's volleyball club.[2][3]

History[edit]

Igtisadchi Baku was founded in the Summer of 2008 and immediately got the right to participate in the Azerbaijan Super League, qualifying after just one season to the Challenge Cup.[citation needed] The following season saw Igtisadchi Baku eliminated in the second round table of European competition, because of the deployment of an ineligible player in the qualification to the Challenge Cup.[citation needed]

In the season 2009-2010, the club achieved third place in the championship, beating the Azerrail Baku and qualifying for the third consecutive season in the Challenge Cup.[citation needed]

In the season 2012-2013, the club participated in the Women's CEV Volleyball Cup, being eliminated in the 8th final round of the competition.[4] In the 2012/13 Azerbaijani Super League, the club claimed the silver medal, tied with Azerrail Baku.[5][6]
