Iran’s Foolad Sirjan overcame Qatari outfit Al Arabi in four sets to win the 2021 Asian Men’s Club Volleyball Championship in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand on Friday.

Foolad took the opening set 25-19 before Al Arabi bounced back with a 25-21 victory in the second set, but the Iranian club came out victorious in the next two sets 25-23 and 25-22 to bring the trophy to the country for fifth consecutive occasion.

The final showpiece was a repeat of a group phase encounter earlier in the competition, which Foolad also won 3-1.

Burevestnik Almaty of Kazakhstan beat the host’s Nakhon Ratchasima QminC 3-0 (25-23, 25-17, 25-21) for the bronze.

Iranian clubs have won the title 15 times over the 22 editions of the event, with Paykan Tehran being the most decorated side in the history of the competition with seven trophies.
