Team profile

The USSR Volleyball Federation joined the FIVB in 1948 and in 1949 participated in the first FIVB Men's World Volleyball Championships.

International competitions such as the Olympic Games, World and European Championships and World Cups continually saw the presence of the USSR’s men's team and they went on to gain worldwide recognition by winning three Olympic titles (1964-68 and 1980), six World Championships (1949, 1952, 1960, 1962, 1978, 1982), four World Cup’s (1965, 1977, 1981, 1991) and were European Champions 12 times.   

In 1993 after the fall of the Soviet Union the USSR National Team was renamed the Russian national team and that year they finished second in the World League Finals.

The Russians never lost their Volleyball dominance after the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 1996 and 1997 the team finished third in the World League and in 1998 they placed second.  1999 saw them regain the World Cup title before capturing silver at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney as well as second place in that year’s World League Finals.

2002 was highlighted by the Russian Team winning the World League Title once again and claiming silver at the World Championships.

2004 and 2008 saw further Olympic glory for the Russians as they took the Bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Athens and Beijing accordingly. Furthermore they finished third at the 2006, 2008 and 2009 World League Finals. 2007 was a silver year for the Russians, as they took silver medals both the World League and the World Cup. They added to their impressive medal tally earlier this year with a silver medal in the FIVB World League, losing narrowly to Brazil in the final.
