In 2013/2014 the club advanced to the Final Four of the Champions League held in Ankara, Turkey and after defeating VC Zenit Kazan won the bronze medal.[2][3] Jastrzębski Węgiel beat ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle in last matches in the battle for a medal. Club ended the season with another bronze in the Polish Championship.[4] After end of season 2013/2014 the team left head coach Lorenzo Bernardi and one of main players, Michał Kubiak, who agreed with Jastrzębski Węgiel, that after the end of the contract in Turkey, he will return to the Polish club.[5]

In 2014/2015 a head coach of team was Italian Roberto Piazza. Club led by him took 4th place in 2014–15 PlusLiga because of lost with PGE Skra Bełchatów in battle of bronze.
