First trophies of Trentino Volley.

Trentino Volley SpA was founded on May 23, 2000;[3] and two days later, it purchased the rights to play in the Serie A1 (Italy's First Division) from Ravenna, that had retired due to financial problems. The club played its first Serie A1 match in Parma on October 15, 2000, against Maxicono Parma, and was defeated 3–0.[4] The first home match of the Trentino Volley was played on October 22, 2000, against Padova, and the home team came out victorious with a result of 3–2.[5]

During its first two seasons, the team managed a tenth,[6] and a ninth [7] place finish at the end of the regular season.

Players acquired by the team in his first Italian Serie A years included Lorenzo Bernardi and Andrea Sartoretti. In the summer of 2007 Trentino Volley made substantial purchases, as part of a strategy that would focus on a young team with talented players, such as Serbian Nikola Grbić, Bulgarians Vladimir Nikolov and Matey Kaziyski and Italian Emanuele Birarelli. Itas Trentino Diatec ended the following regular season with a first-place finish, and stepped into the finals. On May 7, 2008 Trentino Volley defeated Piacenza 3–0,[8] to win its first national championship title, and gain access to the CEV Champions League 2008–2009.

Trento run undefeated in the pool stages, with a first-place finish in Group E. On April 5, 2009, at the O2 Arena in Prague, Trento defeated Iraklis Thessaloniki 3–1 in the final.[9] In 2009, the team flew to Doha (Qatar), to compete in the FIVB Men's Club World Volleyball Championship. On Sunday 8 November, Trentino Betclic won the final, with a score of 3–0 [10] against the Poles of Skra Bełchatów, and became FIVB Club World Champion. In 2010, it won the Italian Cup and then successfully defended its Champions League title with a 3–0 victory (25–12,25–20, 25–21) over Dynamo Moscow.
