History

In 1996, Serie A1 club Unione Sportiva Cistellum Volley was playing at the Palazzetto dello Sport in Cislago,[1] a venue with small capacity, forcing the club to look for a new home venue.[2] In 1997, when the nearby city of Busto Arsizio inaugurated a 4,490 seat venue named PalaYamamay-Maria Piantanida,[3] Cistellum decided to relocate to Busto Arsizio where it remained for three seasons.[4] After relegation to Serie A2 at the end of the 1999–00 season, the club transferred all its sporting activities to Yamamay and Futura Volley Busto Arsizio is created.[2][5]

The club's first season was at the Serie A2 in 2000–01,[6] promotion to the Serie A1 was achieved after seven seasons, in 2007.[7] The first title was the 2009–10 Women's CEV Cup and in 2012 the club won four titles (Serie A1, Italian Cup, CEV Cup and Italian Super Cup).

Arena

The team currently plays at the PalaYamamay, an indoor arena owned by the municipality of Busto Arsizio. The town volleyball team has an exclusive right to use the arena, upon payment of a rental fee.

Supporters and rivalries

The main group of supporters of the Yamamay Busto Arsizio is called "Amici delle Farfalle" (AdF) (Friends of the butterflies).

The main rivalry is with GSO Villa Cortese, a team based in Villa Cortese, in the Province of Milan, because the two cities are neighbors and because they belong to two different provinces. The matches between the two teams are referred as "Derby dell'Altomilanese" (Derby of the Alto Milanese). The "Alto Milanese" is a geographical area between the provinces of Milan, Varese and part of the province of Como.
