Dinamo Krasnodar (Russian: Динамо Краснодар) is a Russian women's volleyball club based in Krasnodar. It was founded in 1946 and plays in the super league, the top Russian league.


Soviet years

Founded in 1946, the club participated in the 1946 Soviet Women's Volleyball Championship (National championship) finishing in eleventh place (out of 18 teams). From that point, the club competed only at regional level until 1955 when it returned to the National championship remaining there until 1966 when it was relegated to a lower national level. In the years that followed, the club had mixed results being promoted and relegated many times without achieving any real tangible success.

Russian years

The club competed in the "B" league of the Russian Women's Championship in 1992–93 and gained promotion to the Super League. A year later it won its first title, the 1994 Russian Cup. It was relegated after a poor campaign in the 1997–98 Super League where it finished last. It took a decade for the club to return to the Super League, only returning in the 2009–10 season. Since then the club has become consistent and competitive, it qualified for a European competition for the first time, the Women's CEV Cup in 2010–11 reaching the final. On domestic level the club added two more Russian Cups (2014 and 2015). European success soon came in the form of titles in the 2012–13 CEV Challenge Cup and CEV Cups of 2014–15 and 2015–16. In 2015, the club was given a wildcard to participate of the FIVB Volleyball Club World Championship in Switzerland and reached the tournament's final.
