The Men’s U21 World Championship for Volleyball 2023, governed by the Federation Internationale de Volleyball (FIVB), will be held from July 7 to July 16, 2023 in Manama, Bahrain. The 22nd edition of the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship will feature the world’s premier junior men’s volleyball teams of players aged 21 and under. Italy is the defending champion having won against Russia in the 2021 edition.

A total of 16 international teams will be competing in the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship 2023. These squads will initially be divided into four separate groups – A, B, C, and D, with each group comprising four teams. They will participate in a round-robin format within their respective groups. Based on the outcomes, the top two teams from each initial group will proceed to two additional groups (E and F). Meanwhile, the teams ranking lower in the first round will also be regrouped into two additional pools (G and H).

In the subsequent stage, the teams in groups E and F that beat the rest will advance to the semifinals and finals. The teams that lose will engage in a playoff to determine the 5th to 8th positions. From groups G and H, the winners will compete for the 9th to 12th places, while the remaining teams will participate in a playoff to secure ranks between the 13th and 16th positions.

Which nations are participating in the championship?
