Olympiacos women's volleyball is the women's volleyball department of the major Greek multi-sport club Olympiacos CFP. It was founded in 1930 and is one of the most successful volleyball clubs in Greece, having won 3 Greek Championships, a record 5 Greek Cups and 3 Doubles. They play their games at the 3,000-seat Melina Mercouri Hall in Piraeus.

In the 2013 A1 finals, Olympiacos defeated AEK Athens, with 3 wins and 2 losses, thereby winning the Greek Championship for the first time in their history.[1] AEK started the finals with a 2–0 lead (due to the final standings of the regular season), but Olympiacos managed to win three consecutive games (two of them being away games) to secure the title.

Olympiacos holds the all-time record for winning five consecutive Greek Cups –in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015–, holding also the record for winning three straight Doubles –in 2013, 2014 and 2015– (shared).[2][3][4] In European competitions, the department reached the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup in season 2007–08.[5]

Some of the greatest players in European volleyball have played for Olympiacos over the years including: Manuela Secolo, Riikka Lehtonen, Maja Ognjenović, Tatiana Artmenko, Antonina Zetova, Michaela Monzoni, Lucie Mühlsteinová, Jovana Vesović and Ivana Bramborová.
