The Brazilian Volleyball Superleague (Portuguese: Superliga Brasileira de Voleibol) is the top level Brazilian professional volleyball competition. It is organized by the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation. It shares the same name as the women's tournament, and are disputed simultaneously. The number of participating clubs varies every year. The champion team qualifies for the South American Championship.

History[edit]

Until the 1960s, there were only state volleyball competitions in Brazil, without a national level competition.

Until 1978, there was also the Taça Brasil (Brazil Trophy), which was a competition between Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Minas Gerais state clubs. Since 1976, this competition was opened to amateur clubs of all Brazilian states, and was held every two years.

In 1981, the first edition of the Campeonato Brasileiro (Brazilian Championship), or Liga Nacional (National League), was disputed by professional clubs.

The Superliga was played for the first time in the 1994–95 season, replacing the Liga Nacional.
