Reigning European Champions and five-time Italian champions take part in the FIVB Men's Club World Championship for the third time ever, after twice finishing runners-up, to Russia's Zenit Kazan in 2017 following a straight-set defeat in the final in Krakow and last year to fellow-Italians Diatecx Trentino following a four-set defeat in Czestochowa.
Lube was founded in 1990 in the town of Treia – though their actual playing venue currently is in neighbouring Civitanova Marche.
Their first major international success came in 2002 when they beat Greece's Olympiacos Piraeus 3-1 in the final to win their first European Champions League title. A second gold in Europe's premier club event came 14 years later, when they dethroned Russia's Zenit Kazan with a 3-1 win in this year's final.
Lube have also won the European Challenge Cup four times, in 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2011.
Domestically, Lube have won five Italian championship titles, in 2006, 2012, 2014, 2017 and 2019 in addition to five Cup titles and four Supercups. In the latest edition of the Italian Superleague, this year, they edged Sir Safety Perugia in the best-of-five final series, including a five-set away win in the deciding fifth match.
