In 2018, there were over 330 thousand Italian athletes practicing this sport, most of whom were female. In terms of indoor volleyball societies, roughly four thousand organizations were recorded, of which over 800 hundred were located in Lombardy.
The FIPAV and the male and female Lega Pallavolo Serie A - which are consortiums representing Italian volleyball teams playing in the top tiers leagues - organize the two most important championships in the country: the Superlega (male volleyball) and the Serie A1 (female volleyball). Between the 2011/2012 and 2018/2019 seasons, revenues of Superlega volleyball games increased overall, amounting to over 3.7 million euros in the last season considered. As of the first half of the season 2019/2020, Leo Shoes Modena was the team generating the highest revenues from Superlega volleyball games. However, as the 2019/2020 season ended early because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it was estimated that Leo Shoe Modena could be one of the Superlega teams registering the highest revenue loss because of the suspended games.
Overall, Leo Shoes Modena was also the team recording the highest attendance at Superlega volleyball games as of the first half of the 2019/2020 season. As of the same period, the most attended Superlega match recorded almost nine thousand spectators, while the most popular Serie A1 game was attended by over five thousand people.
