1 min read

Today Spor Toto won their first-ever Turkish Volleyball Cup!
Defeating Halkbank by a 3-1 (25:27, 25:18, 25:19, 25:17) in the final in Ankara, they won the 2021 Turkish AXA Sigorta Kupa Voley.
Despite the sensational comeback from 24:19 suffered in the first set, they dominated the rest of the match.
It is the first title in the competition for this young club, who was established only 2 years ago, the second trophy in the whole history of the club, but the first of a certain level, after the Balkan Cup won in 2014.
After making an outstanding display in the semifinal yesterday, the 2016 Rio Olympics winner Wallace Souza marked the decider as well: the Brazilian scored 27 points for the winners and deservedly earned the MVP award. Cuban Fernando Hernández scored 20 points for Halkbank.
