The club was created in 1970 in Perugia. It made its way through the lower leagues in Italy until it reached the highest Italian league, the Serie A1 in 1989. The first major title came at the 1991–92 Italian Cup, at the same season the club finished as Serie A1 runner up for a second consecutive year. The early 1990's strong results paved the way to the European competitions but it was only by the end of that decade and the early 2000's that the club transformed strong results into titles. A second Italian Cup title came in 1998–99, the first European title in the 1999–00 Cup Winners Cup and the first Serie A1 title arrived in 2002–03 together with a third Italian Cup. The double (league and cup) was repeated in 2004–05 with the club also taking the CEV Cup that season. In the following season it claimed the CEV Champions League title and in 2006–07 the club won the double (for a third time) and CEV Cup just like it did two seasons earlier. It added an Italian Supercup in 2007 and second Champions League in 2007–08.[1][2]

In 2011 the club restructured itself, the president decided to focus only on the youth teams and the club renounced participation on the 2011–12 Serie A1 season.[1][3] A new club called Sirio Perugia Volley is created and in collaboration with three clubs (APD Monteluce, San Sisto Volley and Pallavolo San Sisto) formed the Pallavolo Perugia group.[4]
