It will be called Consoli Sferc McDonald’s Brescia and from 15 October it will be on the field for its tenth season in Serie A. After the Serie A Volleyball League ratified the registrations of the 14 teams that will take part in the next Serie A2 Credem Banca and closed the Volleyball market in Bologna, the publication of the calendars arrived on time, subsequently subject to advances, postponements and timetable changes.
The toucans will make their home debut on Sunday 15 October against Castellana Grotte, a team full of young Azzurri including Riccardo Iervolino from Brescia, son of assistant coach Paolo. Immediately after, Tiberti and his teammates will test the ambitious newly promoted Pineto in two consecutive away matches, supported by the opposite Padura Diaz and the solid Porto Viro led on the pitch by the excellent playmaker Garnica. The return to San Filippo in the first of three festive days, on November 1, will see Consoli Sferc McDonald’s Brescia against the battleship Cuneo, undoubtedly the best equipped team for the jump in category. The subsequent matches were tough with three secure protagonists of the top classification: Ravenna away, Grottazzolina at home and Siena in Tuscany. After the matches with Ortona of the Cuban Marshall and with Pordenone led by the good director Alberini, on the day before the holiday of December 7 Brescia will face the only derby of the season with Cantù at the San Filippo stadium. The month of December before boxing day at San Filippo (last leg) on ​​the 26th against Reggio Emilia will see two more consecutive trips to Santa Croce and Aversa. In fact, in the first round, the Toucans will play 6 out of 13 matches between their friendly walls and then play 7 in the second leg.

Coach Zambonardi does not hide and comments on the draws as follows: “The start with Castellana hides some pitfalls as the young blues of the Apulian team engaged this summer with their national teams will already arrive in shape at the beginning of the season. The first two away games are also uncomfortable in Pineto and Porto Viro, but honestly we’re ready to battle on every field.This year there won’t be the championship-killing team like Vibo last year, but I see Cuneo above the others and on paper Ravenna and Grottazzolina are very well equipped. Immediately behind a group of good teams such as Siena, Pordenone, Santa Croce, Cantù and Brescia. However, I foresee a great balance. We can’t wait to start with the aim of taking Brescia higher and higher.”

The gathering is set for Monday 21 August with the first friendlies scheduled from mid-September.
