A total of 24 teams will compete for the title in the FIVB Volleyball Men's World Championship Poland 2014 which will take place from August 30 to September 21, 2014. The host country has automatically qualified for the quadriennal event, and the other 23 vacancies were determined through qualifying tournaments held within the five FIVB Confederations (AVC, CAVB, CEV, CSV and NORCECA).
A total of 148 teams played in the men’s world championship qualification process.
The 24 teams will be spread across four pools of six teams playing in a round-robin system with the top four teams advancing to a second round of preliminary matches featuring two pools of eight teams.
The top two teams from each third round pool will then advance to the semifinals and finals with - in the only difference to the FIVB Volleyball Women's World Championship Italy 2014 competition formula - the third ranked teams in the third round pools also playing off for fifth place.
