Team profile

Spain

Spain competed at every FIVB Volleyball World League between 1995 and 2004, but 2014 was only their second participation after 2008 in the following 10 years. They finished joint-fifth in 2014 in Group 3 having taken third place in Pool G. In 2015, Spain were second in Preliminary Round Pool H with five wins and one loss. They progressed to the final round but only finished joint-fifth. Spain's best result in the tournament is fifth, which they achieved in 1999, 2002 and 2003. After a 12th-place finish at the Italy 2010 FIVB Volleyball Men’s World Championship, they did not qualify for the 2014 edition. Their best result in that competition was an eighth-place finish at their debut event in 1998.
 
The high point of Spain’s volleyball history came at the 2007 European Championship. Coached by Andrea Anastasi, they won every match in both group stages before beating Finland in the semifinal and hosts Russia in the final. Spain have also achieved continental success in the European League, winning the competition in 2007 and taking silver three times since. They have competed at two Olympic Games, finishing ninth at Sydney 2000 and eighth at Barcelona 1992.
