Avignon Volley-Ball is a French professional Volleyball team based in Avignon, Vaucluse. It is playing in the Ligue B for the 2013/2014 season.


Initially, the Volley-ball team was a part of the Rugby league team of Avignon (SOA XIII), but in 1961 the club became independent. In 1996, "AVB" achieved its highest ranking in French volleyball league, finishing at the fourth place and qualifying for the CEV European cup. In 1997, the team also qualified for the CEV cup, due to their participation in the French volley-ball cup final but lost against Paris Université Club 1-3. They were eliminated on the first round by the Avtomobilist St Petersburg. In the 2011/2012 season, they won their third "second division" title and were promoted to French volleyball league.
