The FIVB Volleyball Women's Club World Championship is an international women's club volleyball competition organised by the Fédération Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), the sport's global governing body. The competition was first contested in 1991 in Brazil. It was not held between 1995 and 2009, but since 2010, the competition has been held every year, and has been hosted by Qatar, Switzerland, the Philippines and Japan. FIVB has announced that the following two editions of the competition (2018 and 2019) will be held in Zhejiang Province of China.[1]

The current format of the tournament involves eight teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation over a period of about one week; the winners of that year's AVC Club Volleyball Championship (Asia), African Clubs Championship (Africa), Women's South American Volleyball Club Championship (South America) and CEV Women's Champions League (Europe), along with the host city's team and a nominated team from North America. The number of teams is increased through wild card invitees.

The current champions are Turkey's Vakıfbank İstanbul, who defeated Brazil's Minas Tênis Clube 3–0 in the final of the 2018 edition, to win their third title in the competition. Turkish teams have been the most successful, with six titles in total.[2]
